Minister Fritz to report political interference to Public Protector
Today, the Minister of Community Safety, Albert Fritz, will hold a press briefing outside the office of the Public Protector before delivering an affidavit to report political interference in the process of appointing a Provincial Commissioner.
This follows SAPS’ announcement on 28 October 2019, that the position of the Provincial Commissioner will not be filled but will in fact be re-advertised. Minister Fritz previously condemned this as it points to top-level ANC interference within SAPS and government recruitment processes.

Venue: 51 Wale Street (Cnr Bree Street), Cape Town, 8001
