Prince Mokotedi: Timing on assassination claim is purely coincidental

Gauteng Hawks head, Prince Mokotedi, has stood firm in his claim of an alleged plot to murder Hawks head Berning Ntlemeza, NPA boss Shaun Abrahams and Acting National Police Commissioner Kgomotso Phahlane.

Mokotedi charged Ipid head Robert McBride, former top Hawks official Shadrack Sibiya, private investigator Paul O'Sullivan and a crime intelligence official for the matter.

In March, we received an intelligence report that suggested briefly that General Ntlemeza and I were targeted for assassinations.

Nine charges, including conspiracy to murder, treason and espionage were laid at the Bedfordview Police Station on Monday.

Responding to Mokotedi's allegations during a press conference on Tuesday, McBride said he was being targeted and said the claims were devoid of any truth.

He confirmed that indeed a meeting in December 2016 took place between the individuals named in the affidavit but nothing suspicious took place.

There's a group called the Black Hawks, some of the the people referred to there are part of a plan to get senior police officials removed from their positions and incite popular revolt.

Mokotedi said the decision to lay charges and not institute an inquiry was supported by Ntlemeza after consulting him on the action necessary to address the matter.
