JOHANNESBURG, March 17 – The African National Congress (ANC) on Friday said it “notes” the judgment delivered by the Gauteng North High Court which reviewed and set aside the appointment of General Berning Ntlemeza as Head of the Directorate of Priority Crimes (Hawks).
The effect of the judgment is to find General Ntlemeza’s appointment unlawful and invalid.
“This judgement follows an admission made by the Minister of Police, Comrade Nathi Nhleko, to Parliament last year that an error had been made in the procedure followed to appoint General Ntlemeza,” said the ANC in a terse statement issued by ANC national spokesperson Zizi Kodwa.
“The ANC trusts therefore that today’s judgment brings this matter to finality.”
