Who should replace Masemola?
EFF leader Julius Malema called for KwaZulu-Natal police commissioner Lt-Gen Nhlanhla Mkhwanazi to replace Masemola.
According to Malema, Mkhwanazi has what it takes to be a national commissioner and is what the country needs in the fight against crime.
“Nhlanhla Mkhwanazi must be the police commissioner or anyone similar to that guy. I told [police minister] Bheki Cele the same thing when we were in Senekal.
“I said to Bheki, ‘This is the guy who must be a police commissioner and not those you are always giving us who are driven by corruption and do not protect the streets and integrity of the uniform’,” said Malema.
He said the police service uniform looked better on Mkhwanazi compared to other officers.
“When you look at Nhlanhla Mkhwanazi in uniform, you see a man who is disciplined, a man who is determined to deal with crime,” said Malema.
