Making headlines: High Court rules decision to disband ANC's North West PEC was unlawful, Agrizzi, Mti, Gillingham among Hawks' Bosasa arrests And, new Gauteng police commissioner announced



High Court rules decision to disband ANC's North West PEC was unlawful


The Gauteng High Court in Johannesburg has ruled that the decision by the ANC to disband the North West provincial executive committee in September 2018 was unlawful and was to be set aside.

Delivering judgment, Judge Fayeeza Kathree-Setiloane said the applicants were entitled to relief and to reinstate the disbanded PEC.

This comes after the disbanded North West PEC approached the High Court to overturn the decision made by the ANC's national executive committee.

Former North West ANC chairperson Supra Mahumapelo, represented by advocate Dali Mpofu, claimed the decision by the NEC wasn't "impartial".


Agrizzi, Mti, Gillingham among Hawks' Bosasa arrests

Former Bosasa COO Angelo Agrizzi and former correctional services commissioner Linda Mti are among those arrested by the Hawks on allegations of corruption related to the facilities management company.

The Hawks today said six suspects had been arrested - with a warrant of arrest issued for a seventh - on allegations of corruption, money laundering and fraud.

The arrests also includes former correctional services CFO Patrick Gillingham, Bosasa official Andries van Tonder, and three companies, namely: African Global Operations (formerly Bosasa); Sondolo IT and Phezulu Fencing, according to court papers.


New Gauteng police commissioner announced

Lieutenant-General Elias Mawela has been appointed as Gauteng's new police commissioner.

The official announcement was made by Police Minister Bheki Cele at the Mamelodi East Police Station today.

Cele said Mawela was a seasoned police officer and expressed that he will use his experience to "nail criminals".

The 51-year-old Mawela replaces Lieutenant-General Deliwe de Lange, who resigned at the end of October.
