Mkhwebane report finds irregularities at Ipid under McBride's reign
Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane has made several findings against the police watchdog Ipid.
Mkhwebane released the findings of several investigative reports on Wednesday, reports EWN's Nthakoana Ngatane.
She found that there were alleged recruitment irregularities at Ipid during Robert McBride’s tenure.
Mkhwebane found that Ipid irregularly appointed Theresa Botha as deputy director and that proper processes were not followed in a contract awarded to Fidelity Security.
McBride is vying for the position of deputy public protector. It's unclear how these findings will affect his bid.
