Mzansi left speechless after Ramaphosa placed Khehla Sitole on suspension for doing this.


JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA (Reuters) - President Cyril Ramaphosa claimed he received a response from National Police Commissioner Khehla Sitole the day after announcing his intention to suspend the top officer. 

Sitole is facing serious charges for failing to cooperate with the Police Investigative Directorate (Ipid) in an investigation into allegations that he used public resources to assist the African National Congress (ANC). 

This corresponds to a recent High Court ruling that he violated his duty as a cop, up to and including the Independent Police Investigating Directorate Act - obstructing a series of Ipid investigations into degenerate acquisition deals. 

Sitole was given 14 days to present his case and make a case for why he should not be suspended, according to the president. 

In this way, Ramaphosa has designated a leading group of requests to look into Sitole's fitness to serve in government. 

The president stated he was concentrating on the police magistrate's reaction while he spoke uninvolved of a battlefield in Tlokwe, in the North West. 

"Indeed, I've received a response from the police magistrate; I'm focusing on it and considering it. On this instance, that is all one can say about it ",
