Booysen lays bare efforts to remove him from the Hawks

Former KwaZulu-Natal Hawks boss Johan Booysen is continuing to give his testimony at the state capture commission.

Booysen told the commission about efforts to remove him from office.

This phase of the hearings is focusing on the capture of the criminal justice sector and law enforcement agencies in particular.

They hit him with another suspension notice, this time related to the racketeering and the criminal matter. He then goes through the disciplinary notice and he gets exonerated.

As he wanted to go to work, he is called into a meeting by then national commissioner Riah Phiyega. She gave him three options: either you stay on special leave, you can either agree to a transfer, or we will give you a golden handshake.

Riah Phiyega was willing to pay him three years out until the end of his term. He rejected them and his racketeering charge was reinstated.
