Din­twe to pro­ceed with Fraser in­ter­dict

The Witness - - NEWS -

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.
