Police Minister wants Parliament to probe Ipid head Robert McBride

Police Minister Nathi Nhleko has again asked Parliament to establish an inquiry into Independent Police Investigative Directorate (Ipid), head RobertMcBride.

In September the Constitutional Court ruled that Nhleko’s decision to suspend McBride was unlawful and has set it aside.

The ConCourt then reserved the suspension for 30 days to allow for Parliament to decide whether to proceed with disciplinary action against McBride.

Parliament did not act on the matter, and McBride then resumed his duties.

There was a process the Parliament and the Minister had to follow. And Parliament did not follow any process. The order remains. The Minister is saying let's follow the process as the ConCourt as ordered.

Sandile Ngidi, Minister of Police spokesperson

The Police Minister previously stated that McBride should now report to Parliament because their relationship is broken.
