Cobus Claassen, Beeld
Pretoria - Robert McBride is on a shortlist of five candidates for the position of Tshwane's new metro police chief.

A Tshwane metro council panel on Tuesday interviewed the candidates in Munitoria in Pretoria and could make a recommendation on Wednesday.

McBride, the former metro police chief of Ekurhuleni on the East Rand, is one of the favourites for the position of strategic executive head of community safety, even though he is still facing charges of fraud, drunken driving and defeating the ends of justice after an accident in December 2006.

McBride's official car crashed near Centurion on the way back from an office party near Hartbeespoort Dam. The matter will resume on August 25. Another favourite on the shortlist is MD Manganye, a senior police officer.

Playing with fire

A top Tshwane official who is closely involved in the process, said on Tuesday that Tshwane is playing with fire.

"Only one candidate on the shortlist, Pinkie Mathabathe, meets all the legal requirements to fill this important post."

Mathabathe has been in the position in an acting role after controversial commissioner Mpho Mmutle resigned earlier this year.

Mmutle was apparently linked to irregular transactions that had been part of Tshwane's so-called Tetra tender of over R100m.

Mmutle then left and nothing came of the allegations.

The Ekurhuleni metro council axed McBride in 2008.

The council also decided earlier this year not to continue paying the legal fees for the court cases in which McBride was involved.

These cases had at the time cost East Rand ratepayers more than R10m.

McBride said on Tuesday he did not want to comment at this time.

Meets requirements

Advocate Trish Armstrong of the national forum for metro police chiefs said apart from Mathabathe, McBride also met the requirements as he still was a registered and qualified metro police officer.

Armstrong said it was McBride's right to apply for the position.

"Anyone is innocent until the contrary is proven."

She said the directives regulating appointments in the metro police (rule 11) clearly stipulated that only a metro police officer could be appointed.

"A member of the police force may therefore not be considered or appointed."

Bongi Lehobye, Tshwane's mayoral committee member for community safety, on Tuesday said the names on the shortlist were confidential and could not be discussed with the media.

DA spokesperson for community safety, Karen Meyer, said the party was stunned that McBride could be considered as a candidate in the first place.

"We are very worried about this. What will happen if he gets the job and is later found guilty?"

City mum on McBride metro chief reports

Pretoria - Tshwane metro and axed Ekurhuleni police chief Robert McBride were mum on Wednesday on media reports that he had been shortlisted to take over as head of the city's metro police.

"I cannot comment on that," McBride said.

Community safety department spokesperson Console Tleane said: "We don't comment on shortlists and interviews. There are legal issue that also accompany them."

The media reported that McBride, on trial for drunken driving, was among five people to be considered for the job.

McBride stands accused of driving under the influence, fraud and defeating the ends of justice after he crashed his car near Pretoria in December 2006.

The trial was expected to resume in the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria on August 25.

The Freedom Front Plus called the possible appointment disappointing and the Democratic Alliance said it "boggles the mind".

"Apart from the controversy surrounding McBride, we doubt that he is qualified for the position," said Fred Nel, DA spokesperson for local government in Gauteng.

"It is time that Mr McBride looks for a job in another sector of society; his career as a metro police officer is over," said FF Plus spokesperson Piet Uys.

Nel said one of the major downfalls of local government in Gauteng was the deployment of political cadres in key positions that should be occupied by technically qualified experts.

"So how could McBride possibly be on the shortlist for the position of chief of police of the Tshwane metro police?"

He said McBride's possible selection was a clear indication that such an important position was rather viewed as an opportunity to create jobs for "pals" by the ANC instead of appointing an accountable, qualified person to such a critical post.

"Should McBride be appointed, the DA will do all in its power to ensure that such an appointment is not ratified," he said, adding that he intended to petition the MEC for safety and security in the province to prevent such a "reckless appointment".

The FF Plus said McBride should not be considered for the position especially because his prior metro had removed him from his position in 2008.

"There is a sufficient number of efficient and suitable officials from within its own membership... who could fill this position.

"The current acting head Pinkie Mathabathe showed excellent leadership during the FIFA world soccer tournament and will easily be capable of filling the position," said Uys.
