Cape Town - Western Cape police commissioner Khombinkosi Jula has reportedly been given until July 15 to vacate his position and has been ordered to resume duty in KwaZulu-Natal.
High-ranking sources within the provincial police said Jula, who is currently on leave, will on his return empty his office.
According to them this move was based on the police commissioner’s apparent failure to bring down the level of crime in the province.
“Crime, and especially gang-related violence, has decreased in the province since the inception of the Anti-Gang Unit in November 2018. In March last year a detailed plan that included resources, logistics and manpower needed was forwarded to the provincial commissioner for the establishment of AGU base units in hotspot areas like Avian Park in Worcester, Bonteheuwel, Lavender Hill, Khayelitsha and Nyanga, branded as the murder capital of the country.
“All the commissioner had to do was to sign it off so that it could be referred to the national police commissioner.
