It's David Tembe's first week on the job as the Johannesburg Metro Police Department's new police chief.
Tembe’s public safety career began in 1981 as a paramedic with the Johannesburg Emergency Management Services (EMS).
He sat down with Azania Mosaka to discuss how he plans to clamp down on corruption and improve his department.
We have got highly qualified and respectable officers who have got integrity. I am not going to worry much about those who are taking bribes because I will get rid of them, and make it very very clear.— David Tembe, JMPD police chief
We need to go on a campaign because communication is the best. The police will never succeed in anything they do unless they have a buy in from the community, you must have the trust of the community.— David Tembe, JMPD police chief
