Senna’s appearance before MPs on Wednesday comes after the portfolio committee on police wrote to Minister of Police Bheki Cele to appear before them with Senna.
Chairperson of the committee Francois Beukman said yesterday they wanted Cele to brief them on Senna’s appointment and provide his career history. Senna has worked for several departments in the finance divisions and he has been the chief financial officer of Ipid since February last year.
The appointment of Senna came a day after former Ipid boss Robert McBride left after his contract expired.
There was more drama because on Friday former acting police boss Khomotso Phahlane was arrested on fraud charges. He was arrested with another official from supply chain management in the police. Phahlane accused McBride of being behind the arrests.
