Phahlane's arrest had nothing to do with McBride's dismissal - Ipid
Former police commissioner Kgomotso Phahlane was arrested and released on bail of R20 000 on Friday.
His arrest relates to a contract worth an estimated R86 million to supply blue emergency lights for police vehicles.
The Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID) spokesperson Moses Dlamini says the case has been under investigation since last year and saw an arrest of four police officials.
He says Phahlane's arrest had nothing to do with the sacking of Ipid's head Robert McBride.
