'Minister has a strange motive for not wanting me to go back to work'- McBride

Suspended Independent Police Investigative Directorate (Ipid) head Robert McBride says the Minister of Police Nathi Nhleko can go ahead and challenge the merits of allegations against him.

Minister of Police Nkosinathi Nhleko, responded to the Constitutional Court judgement in a statement, saying it must noted that the Court made the judgement on the procedural aspects of the case not on the merits of the allegations against McBride.

Today the ConCourt ruled in favour of McBride finding that Nhleko acted unconstitutionally by suspending McBride last March, over his alleged involvement in the illegal deportation of five Zimbabwean murder suspects.

McBride says the Constitutional Court's decision to overturn his suspension has cleared his name.

Parliament will now have to decide whether there should be disciplinary hearing against McBride.

We are not fearful of appearing. In fact we are looking forward to the opportunity to expose these shenanigans.
