Cape Town - Community Safety MEC Albert Fritz has confirmed that provincial police commissioner Khombinkosi Jula is leaving at the end of the month to resume duties in KwaZulu-Natal.
“I will raise the matter at the NCOP today. We hope to get an indication from Minister Bheke Cele on Thursday on who the possible replacement will be.”
Fritz didn’t want to speculate on who will head the province’s police services.
“We want an open process and wants to give all the candidates a fair chance. We will give our input during the interviews with candidates,” he said.
A source said Peter Jacobs and Jeremy Veary were the frontrunners for the position, unless somebody from outside the province was appointed.
