As an organisation which is operating in a dynamic environment, it is vital that we occasionally review our plans and tactics as well as the leadership team that is tasked with ensuring that we intensify the fight against crime.
In view of this, SAPS management has taken a decision to revitalize policing in Gauteng by enhancing capacity at operational level, where it is needed the most, with experienced senior managers.
In line with the SAPS transfer and rotation policies, nine senior managers from the Gauteng Province have been given an opportunity to take up leadership roles at different levels of command across Gauteng Province. Only Major General Phumza Gela has been asked to go outside Gauteng Province to the Free State.
Other proposed changes are as follows:
1. Major General Makhosazana Maloka from Human Resource Management to Physical Resources
2. Major General Tebello Mosikili, currently Deputy Provincial Commissioner: Crime Detection to Cluster Commander for Katlehong
3. Major General Norman Taioe, currently Provincial Head: Crime Detection to Cluster Commander: Sebokeng
4. Major General Dimakatso Ndaba, currently Deputy Provincial Commissioner: Physical Resources Management to Cluster Commander Hillbrow
5. Major General Deliwe de Lange, currently Cluster Commander of Sebokeng to Deputy Provincial Commissioner: Human Resource Management
6. Major General Theko Pharasi, currently Cluster Commander of Hillbrow to Deputy Provincial Commissioner: Policing
7. Major General Nneke Ledwaba, currently Cluster Commander of Katlehong to Cluster Commander of Sunnyside and
8. Major General Kotsi Nkomo, currently Component Head: Auxiliary and Security Services at the National Office to Deputy Provincial Commissioner: Crime Detection.
We have followed a very dignified process whereby all those affected were called individually to a meeting to discuss the changes. Their skills profiles, personal circumstance and the interests of the SAPS were taken into consideration. Although the majority of them have already accepted, the affected individuals were also given 21 working days, which expires on 29 January 2015, to go and consider management’s proposal.
Should they come up with compelling reasons as to why they shouldn’t be rotated, then management will certainly consider those. There will be no loss of benefits. SAPS management is confident that these proposed changes will enhance our crime fighting efforts as well as overall service delivery to the people of Gauteng.
