JOHANNESBURG – Union members are happy with the way that officials are dealing with police corruption and mismanagement, the Police and Prisons Civil Rights Union (Popcru) said on Monday.

The union's General Secretary Nkosinathi Theledi said it was positive that these issues were being investigated in the public sphere.

His comments follow the announcement that controversial Crime Intelligence boss Richard Mdluli would be suspended from the force for a second time.

Sunday’s suspension comes after “serious allegations” surfaced from an ongoing court inquest looking into the 1999 murder of Oupa Ramogibe.

The former top cop was allegedly involved in a love triangle and organised for Ramogibe’s murder.  

Mdluli was first suspended in 2011 pending the outcome of an investigation into allegations of murder, fraud, nepotism and corruption.

But in March, the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) withdrew the charges against him and he was subsequently reinstated.  

Earlier in May, Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa announced that Mdluli would be moved to another department pending a probe by a task team.

In a separate incident, suspended National Police Commissioner General Bheki Cele's inquiry is set to call for his dismissal.

This was revealed in a leaked media report last week.

President Jacob Zuma announced the Cele inquiry following Public Protector Thuli Madonsela’s damning report into the police headquarters deal.

She found that Cele and officials from the Department of Public Works acted unlawfully in the procurement process involving the Pretoria and Durban deals.

The properties belonged to businessman Roux Shabangu.
