Police Minister Fikile Mbalula has reiterated that Berning Ntlemeza is no longer head of the Hawks, but Ntlemeza insists he is still the boss.
Ntlemeza reported for duty on Monday despite Mbalula's decision to replace him with Lieutenant General Yolisa Matakata as the new acting head last week.
The High Court in Pretoria ruled that Ntlemeza's appointment was invalid and should be set aside.
Eyewitness News reports that Ntlemeza’s attorney Comfort Ngidi said Ntlemeza will exercise his rights not to have Mbalula interfere in his duties.
