Dramat 'offers' to go on early retirement
Suspended Hawks boss Anwa Dramat has apparently written to the police minister.
JOHANNESBURG - Suspended Hawks boss Anwa Dramat has apparently written to Police Minister Nkosinathi Nhleko.
The Sunday Times is reporting that Dramat stated in the letter that he had made "powerful enemies" by investigating very influential people who wanted him sacked.
In the letter, Dramat states that he recently asked for certain case dockets involving very influential people to be centralised under one investigating arm.
This, he says, has clearly caused massive resentment.
He has apparently offered to go on early retirement on condition that his suspension is lifted.
It has emerged Benny Ntlemeza, who has been appointed as acting head of the Hawks, has close ties with former crime intelligence boss Richard Mdluli.
Dramat's suspension has been described as unconstitutional by the Democratic Alliance (DA).
Dramat has been suspended pending an investigation into whether he played a role in the illegal rendition of Zimbabweans in 2010.
