Phahlane has no extra job and no rich family - investigator

The Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID) has been conducting an investigation into how acting police commissioner General Khomotso Phahlane managed to afford the house he built in the north of Pretoria.

The house is said to be worth about R8m, but Phahlane only took out a bond of about R2 million.

CapeTalk's Kieno Kammies spoke to Paul O’Sullivan, forensic investigator who laid a charge against Phahlane.

According to O'Sullivan, an unnamed police Colonel in the Eastern Cape felt so strongly that there was corruption going on that he made to a report to police commissioner Riah Phiyega and the Minister.

When no action was taken the Colonel confided in O'Sullivan with the hope that he will do something about it.

He flew over to Johannesburg, he gave me some documents. We spent three days looking at this and from that I decided to conduct some investigation.

Phahlane has been in the police services for years and his wife is a police officer. They live in a mansion and drive a BMW i8 that's worth R1.8 million, says O'Sullivan.

O' Sullivan claims Phahlane has no extra job and no rich family.

Phahlane told eNCA that he was not aware there is an investigation conducted on him until he saw it in the media. However, O'Sullivan says it is all a lie. Phahlane has since said that this is a violation of his privacy.
