On Monday, Police Minister Bheki Cele confirmed in Tafelsig that the advertisement for the position of provincial commissioner in the Western Cape is out.
The post became vacant at the end of last month following the transfer of commissioner Khombinkosi Jula to KwaZulu-Natal.
“We have to follow a process of candidates applying and interviewing them. We would love to do this in the shortest possible time, so that the Western Cape can have a permanent police commissioner.
“We want to stabilise the area and want the new commissioner to put his team together,” Cele said.
