Mcbride not surprised by 'disgruntled' Ipid investigator who turned on him

This story has been updated.

Eyewitness News has revealed that one of Ipid head Robert McBride's most senior investigators has turned on him after being offered a senior position in the South African Police Service.

This comes amid a longstanding public battle between McBride and according to EWN 'certain elements' within the police.

EWN has seen a letter addressed to Police Minister Bheki Cele, in which Ipid investigator Cedrick Nkabinde accuses McBride of doing everything in his power to discredit former acting national police commissioner Khomotso Phahlane.

Responding to Nkabinde's claims on Afternoon Drive, McBride says he is not surprised by this development.

We have been aware of his fraternisation with elements within crime intelligence who are linked to the Phahlane North West hit squad unit if I can call them that, so we have been monitoring it for some time.

Overall, if you are investigating police officers they know the law, they know how to apply the law, they also know how to circumvent the law.

The fact that Nkabinde is disgruntled in that he did not get a post at a more senior level than he is at present and that he is resentful about it.

Cedric Nkabinde himself recommended that Phahlane and Mabula be prosecuted for defeating the ends of justice. Separate from me. I do not get involved in the intricate details of investigation.
