Police Minister Nkosinathi Nhleko is meeting the management of the Hawks in Pretoria this morning after the crime fighting unit's head Anwa Dramat was placed on precautionary suspension. Dramat's suspension is related to allegations he helped facilitate the illegal renditions of Zimbabweans in 2010. The Police Ministry's Musa Sondi says the move does not mean the Hawks boss is guilty.
More than a year ago Police watchdog IPID confirmed it was investigating Dramat - along with Gauteng Hawks Head Shadrack Sibiya - for their alleged involvement in the illegal renditions.
Dramat's suspension is expected to last around two months.
Four people have died and four others are in a critical condition after a head on collision on the N4 in Mpumalanga. It's not clear what caused the accident this morning but traffic authorities are on the scene.
