The Presidency has given Police Commissioner Riah Phiyega more time to explain why she should not be suspended, pending the outcome of an inquiry into her fitness to hold office.
President Jacob Zuma's office released a statement this afternoon, saying it has now established a board of inquiry into allegations of misconduct against Phiyega and her capacity to execute official duties efficiently.
This follows a recommendation by the Farlam Commission of Inquiry that she be investigated after hearing evidence from the police, the Marikana miners and other parties over 300 days.
702's Xolani Gwala spoke to Dr Johan Burger, a senior researcher at the Institute for Security Studies, about the inquiry into Phiyega's conduct.
