Dintwe to proceed with Fraser interdict
DESPITE a decision to move State Security Agency (SSA) director-general Arthur Fraser to the Department of Correctional Services, Inspector-General of Intelligence (IGI) Setlhomamaru Dintwe will still proceed with his urgent application for an interdict tomorrow to bar Fraser from interfering with his duties.
“The transfer follows consultation between President Cyril Ramaphosa, the Minister of State Security Ms Dipuo Letsatsi-Duba and Mr Fraser on the suitable location of the director general. The transfer has been agreed upon with Mr Fraser and will be effective with immediate effect,” SSA spokesperson Brian Dube said.
“Loyiso Jafta has been appointed to act as the directorgeneral of the State Security Agency until the appointment process for the post is finalised.”
DA chief whip John Steenhuisen reacted that the party welcomed Fraser’s removal from the SSA, but was outraged that he had been transferred.
“The president’s decision to transfer Fraser is nothing short of a continuation of the disgraceful trend started by former President Jacob Zuma where patently corrupt and criminal officials escape liability for their actions,” said Steenhuisen.
