Cop con­fu­sion

CityPress - - Voices -

So­cial De­vel­op­ment Min­is­ter Batha­bile Dlamini was never ready for this. Early this week, the pres­i­dent an­nounced that Dlamini would be act­ing po­lice min­is­ter while Fik­ile Mbalula flew off to Sin­ga­pore to at­tend an in­ter­na­tional po­lice congress.

On Tues­day morn­ing, Dlamini was flab­ber­gasted when she was sa­luted by po­lice officers as she ar­rived at the ANC’s Na­tional Pol­icy Con­fer­ence at Nas­rec’s Expo Cen­tre.

A con­fused Dlamini had to be re­minded by mem­bers of her en­tourage to salute back as she was now the act­ing top cop.
