JOHANNESBURG - Parliament's portfolio committee has welcomed President Jacob Zuma's decision to institute an inquiry into National Police Commissioner Riah Phiyega's fitness to hold office.

The president says he has written to Phiyega, notifying her of his intentions.

He will also allow her an opportunity to make written representations as to why she should not be suspended pending the outcome of an inquiry.

This comes after the Farlam Commission which recommended that an inquiry be held into the police commissioner's fitness to hold office in the wake of the 2012 massacre that left 34 miners dead.

Portfolio committee chairperson Francois Beukman says the committee supports the inquiry into Phiyega's fitness to hold office.

He says the committee will await its outcome, as well as a report from the inquiry's chairperson.

This report, with recommendations, is expected to be submitted to the portfolio committee for consideration.

In the meantime, Beukman has urged the South African Police Service (SAPS) management to focus on their crime fighting duties.
