Pretoria- The National Head of the Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation (DPCI) Lieutenant General Mthandazo Ntlemeza has congratulated the newly appointed Hawks provincial heads of Gauteng and Western Cape, saying the appointment will go a long way in ensuring that the DPCI realises its mandate in those provinces.

Major General Prince Nkitsing Mokotedi has been appointed as the new Head of the Hawks in Gauteng. Mokotedi brings a wealth of investigation experience, having been in the investigation environment for quite a while. Having worked as a forensic investigator and the director of integrity management at the National Prosecutions Authority as well as the Director for monitoring and analysis at the Secretariat for Safety and Security, Mokotedi has gathered enough experience to keep criminals at bay in the Gauteng province.

The province of the Western Cape will have a new head in Major General (Advocate) Nombuso Portia Khoza. With the Bachelor of Laws in her back and having worked as a senior state advocate at the National Prosecution Authority, Major General Khoza will bring the leadership which the province has been longing for.

The Organised Crime unit in KwaZulu-Natal also has a new head in Brigadier Thembi Thembeka Dube. Brigadier Dube has over 29 years as an investigator and prior her appointment as the Head of Organised Crime in KwaZulu-Natal she was the cluster commander of Howick, in the same province.
