Johannesburg - The newly-appointed acting head of the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (Ipid), Victor Ofenste Senna on Monday vowed to lead the police watchdog's fight against crime - particularly corruption - without fear or favour.
Senna was formally introduced to Ipid management on Monday by Police Minister Bheki Cele, in Pretoria.
"The Ipid plays an important role in the fight against corruption and other offences - this role will not be diminished by the departure of the former executive director [Robert McBride]", said Senna.
"I have confidence in the Ipid team to live up to the high standard expected of us."
Cele last week appointed Senna as Ipid head, for a period of three months.
