Ntlemeza not giving up despite court ruling

On Friday, the High Court in Pretoria ruled against Police Minister Nathi Nhleko’s decision to appoint him.

JOHANNESBURG – Former Hawks head Berning Ntlemeza is adamant that he will push ahead with his fight against crime, despite a judgment by the High Court in Pretoria that his appointment was unlawful and he must be removed from office.

On Friday, the court ruled against Police Minister Nathi Nhleko’s decision to appoint him.

However, the City Press has reported that Nhleko will appeal the ruling in another court in the hope of a different outcome.

Lobby groups Freedom Under Law and the Helen Suzman Foundation have argued that Ntlemeza is not fit to hold office.

In 2015, Judge Elias Matojane ruled that Ntlemeza was dishonest, lacked integrity and honour and tried to mislead the court.

But on Sunday, Ntlemeza told the Incredible Happenings church in Katlehong that he is not giving up.

“Churches in South Africa are praying for the police and they must keep it up and Pastor Mbhoro is praying for the police as well.”

Paseka Motsoeneng, also known as Pastor Mboro, told his congregation that Ntlemeza deserves to hold a position in high office.

Ntlemeza responded by saying he would continue to fight crime.

“The Hawks will go on to do their work, to deal with the mandate given to them.”

Congregants prayed that Ntlemeza would be successful in his appeal.
