JOHANNESBURG - Police Minister Fikile Mbalula will be speaking about his executive authority interventions at SAPS in addressing policing challenges in South Africa.

In a media release, the police department said that to battle South Africa&39;s crime, the minister had focused on instilling an intelligence-led policing approach on prevention and fighting of crime.

This entailed strengthening the Division of Crime Intelligence. Media reports on Monday suggested that Mbalula had taken control of the police&39;s Crime Intelligence unit by issuing a ministerial directive that sidelines acting National Commissioner Lesetja Mothiba.
