Choosing SAPS and Hawks leaders

Two leading NGOs in South Africa have launched a campaign to pressure the government for more transparency and higher standards when filling current vacancies to head the South African Police Service (SAPS) and the Directorate for Priority Crime Investigations (Hawks). Citing “a drastic decline in police performance in the past five years,” the NGOs emphasize that the pending appointments will determine “who gets investigated, who doesn’t, what resources are given to what priority crimes” including “which cabinet minister gets investigated, or what powerful business family will or will not be thoroughly investigated.”
