JOHANNESBURG - Gauteng Community Safety MEC Sizakele Nkosi-Malobane says a Jeppe Police Station commander is under investigation for taking more than 64 days leave.

MEC's are facing questions from members of the provincial legislature today.

The Democratic Alliance (DA) raised questions about the effectiveness of the Jeppe Police Station after it was discovered the station commander was not at work.

The DA's Jack Bloom says there's a high level of crime in the Jeppe area and that requires a full-time station commander.

Brigadier Govindsamy Mariemuthoo took 64 days leave for what has been described as a ‘work related injury to the knee’.

Malobane says she's also not aware of his absence from work at his previous job.

“Any information regarding this would be appreciated, so that it can be included in our investigation.”

The station commander has allegedly used up all types of leave in order to stay home for an extended period of time.
