Rumblings of discontent are growing within the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID).
The staff has alleged that IPID head, Jennifer Ntlatseng has allowed the body to fall into disrepute.
They accuse her, and key members in her management team, of being involved in maladministration, nepotism, corruption, and fraud.
Their grievances are contained in a letter that has reportedly been sent to the Presidency, police, Hawks, and trade unions.
The IPID employees allegedly accuse Ntlatseng of appointing loyalists into critical posts and shielding others from disciplinary action.
Meanwhile the Public Servants’ Association has hit out at Ntlatseng, saying that IPID is on the verge of collapse due to her maladministration.
These allegations place the integrity of the investigative directorate into question.
IPID is meant to hold police officers accountable, should they be found to have transgressed the law or their mandate.
