Shadrack Sibiya raring to get back to work
It's unclear when the Gauteng Hawks boss will return as he's still recovering after a serious car crash.
JOHANNESBURG - Gauteng Hawks boss Shadrack Sibiya's attorney on Monday said his client wants to get back to fighting crime as soon as possible, but is unfortunately still recovering after a serious car crash. PICTURE: A picture of Shadrack Sibiya's car after he rolled it on 16 March

The High Court in Pretoria on Monday ruled that Sibiya may return to work with immediate effect and made scathing findings against acting national head Major-General Mthandazo Ntlemeza.
The court dismissed Ntlemeza's attempt to appeal an earlier ruling declaring that Sibiya's suspension was unlawful and invalid.
Vindictive, biased and lacking integrity is how Judge Elias Matojane described Ntlemeza when he ruled that Sibiya may return to work immediately.
His attorney Victor Nkhwashu said, "We believe that the rule of law has been maintained by this judgment and we just hope that the institution of justice can proceed and my client can just go back to work and do what he does best - fight crime."
