Certificate of appreciation awarded to Assistant Commissioner SG Lebeya for the professional approach into the criminal activities of the former Deputy Speaker of Mpumalanga Provincial Government and three others who were convicted on 34 counts of fraud/theft and sentenced to a collective 26 years imprisonment. The perseverance to endure strenuous and difficult circumstances do not go unnoticed. The vigour put into this investigation is reflected in the sentence passed by the magistrate. It is a true reflection of devotion and dedication towards the SA Police Service. The total commitment, eagerness and resourcefulness allowed the SA Police Service to portray a good image between the SA Police Service and the public.

"NATIONAL ASSEMBLY: 08 MAY 2012"

"Chairperson, as I conclude even before Honourable Annelize will deal with Detective Services Programme, can I on behalf of the ANC extend our excitement about everything that was presented to Parliament on the Detective Services Programme. Minister, your department said to us, Portfolio Committee, we are giving you what you have been recommending, but we want to prove to you that we, the Department, are the experts in this field and we will surpass your expectations. Minister, the presentation was from people who knew what they were talking about. They have clear targets. Everyone who spoke on that exciting Thursday of 19 April 2012 had clarity, seriousness and commitments. It was like they have gathered a team of experts who in terms of qualifications, experience, skills and performance were appointed. Minister, we are for now excited and we are optimistic. We want to congratulate the Minister, the Acting National Commissioner, and the Deputy National Commissioner Lebeya and his team.

Divisional Commissioner De Beer, I wish to thank Assistant Commissioner Lebeya and his team for the thorough investigations done as well as the professionally presented case dockets and representations file (including the summaries and draft charge sheets). It was indeed a pleasure to work through the neatly prepared dockets and if this is the example of work to be generated by the Organised Crime Units, we will work well together in our newly established endeavors to work as a team.
