Pretoria, Friday 16 June 2017: The Acting National Commissioner of the South African Police Service, Lieutenant General Lesetja Mothiba, has announced that Major General PM (Pat) Mokushane was appointed as the Acting Divisional Commissioner of the SAPS’s Crime Intelligence Division on 10 June 2017. He will perform duties in this post until further notice.

Major General Mokushane has served in the South African Police Service for 23 years, the majority of his service being in intelligence. He has thus acquired vast experience in the police’s crime intelligence environment and his placement as the Acting Divisional Commissioner will enhance that division’s capacity to prevent and combat crime and maintain stability in South Africa.

The previous incumbent in the post, Major General MA (Agnes) Makhele, has returned to her permanent post as Provincial Head of Crime Intelligence in the Free State. Her diligent service during her 18 month tenure as Acting Divisional Commissioner is greatly appreciated.

Crime intelligence plays a critical role in the fight against crime and management of the South African Police Service is confident that Major General Mokushane will contribute towards us ensuring that the people of South Africa are and feel safe.
