Cape Town - Police Minister Bheki Cele has named the acting head of the Independent Police Investigative Directorate, a day after Robert McBride left the organisation.
Cele said on Friday Ipid Chief Financial Officer Victor Ofentse Senna will be acting head for the next three months.
The appointment of Senna comes after McBride filed urgent papers in the North Gauteng High Court to get his job back.
It was a day of drama after former acting police chief Khomotso Phahlane was arrested by Ipid on fraud charges.
But Phahlane said this was a way for McBride to get back at him.
