Joburg's metro police chief resumes duties

Tuesday, October 6, 2009

Johannesburg -The Chief of the Johannesburg Metropolitan Police Department (JMPD), Chris Ngcobo, has resumed his duties after being cleared of corruption charges in August.

"I can confirm that Ngcobo is back at work. He resumed with his duties yesterday," the City of Joburg Director of Communications, Gabu Tugwana told BuaNews.

Allegations of corruption were levelled against Ngcobo by the South African Municipal Workers Union (SAMWU) in February earlier this year.

He had stepped down pending the outcome of the investigation and a week-long strike by the union calling for his suspension.
