A fam­ily man, who is fol­low­ing God’s plan

Sunday Times - - News | Table Talk -

What are your favourite foods?

I have to say it’s my wife’s cook­ing. I con­sider my­self the cheap­est per­son to main­tain . . . an un­com­pli­cated eater. I eat home food as I never want to of­fend my wife by say­ing that I am full be­cause I have eaten else­where.

I eat the sim­plest types of food; food which peo­ple would not think of. I’m not a meat eater. I love my phutu and milk. That and gravy. And of course I make sure I eat break­fast and din­ner at home ev­ery day.

What is it like be­ing the top cop in the coun­try?

It’s ex­cit­ing but also daunt­ing. I al­ways knew when I joined the po­lice that God had big things planned for me, but I never thought I would be the na­tional po­lice com­mis­sioner.

If you had not been given the top job, what would you be do­ing right now?

I would ei­ther be serv­ing gov­ern­ment in an­other ca­pac­ity or work­ing for an NGO for the eco­nom­i­cal ben­e­fit of the coun­try.

Does your fam­ily ever give you ad­vice on how to do your new job?

All the time. They are all in­no­va­tors, with quick minds, who are full of sug­ges­tions on how to en­sure we rid the coun­try of crime. Their sug­ges­tions are at times quite good. I value the opin­ions of my chil­dren, who are both in law en­force­ment — and es­pe­cially my wife’s views.
