PRETORIA – Acting national police commissioner Khomotso Phahlane says the corruption investigation against him is a malicious attack on his integrity.
The lieutenant general was speaking on the sidelines of the National Police Day commemoration which was held in Ikageng Village in the North West yesterday.
Eyewitness News revealed this week that police watchdog Ipid had broadened the scope of its investigation and was probing how Phahlane bought and financed several cars over the last few years.
He says he has serious concerns with the manner in which he is being investigated.
“I’ve got serious problem with the allegations being peddled in the public domain and the suggestion of corruption even if people have the information that suggests otherwise.”
While he acknowledged accepting a bakkie sponsored by a car dealer he’s confident there is no case against him.
“I will cooperate with anyone because there is nothing to hide. This is intended to discredit me.”
Phahlane says he will soon approach the courts to bring an end the attempts to tarnish his name.
