Ipid's Limpopo head given marching orders
Innocent Khuba received a final warning after pleading guilty to dishonesty & defeating the ends of justice.
JOHANNESBURG - The Independent Police Investigative Directorate (Ipid) has announced its fired its Limpopo head Innocent Khuba with immediate effect.
A week ago Khuba received a final written warning after pleading guilty to dishonesty and defeating the ends of justice for altering the report into the so-called Zimbabwe rendition matter.
But on Friday he signed an affidavit where he exonerated his co-accused Ipid head Robert McBride and colleague Matthews Sesoko.
Ipid says in a statement that Khuba has been fired for reneging on the plea agreement he signed with his employer.
It says the Limpopo head then signed an affidavit which was contradictory to the one he provided to the directorate.
In that statement, he says McBride and Sesoko never provided any instruction to alter the Zimbabwe rendition report to exonerate anyone.
The police watchdog says on the basis of Khuba providing two conflicting versions about the incident it saw it fit to dismiss him with immediate effect.
The watchdog body says the employee was well aware of the seriousness of the charges he was facing.
