After matriculating in 1977 I joined the police service and was a career policeman for 34 years. I
studied part-time and obtained one national diploma and two law degrees. After serving with
several detective branches and units I was appointed as the commander of the Child Protection Unit,
East Metropole in 1996. It was a field that interested me, and a post I occupied for the next fifteen
years. During that time I investigated a number of high-profile cases involving rape, sexual abuse and
exploitation resulting in convictions and long prison terms, such as S v James McNeil, S v Jan
Johannes Schietekat, S v John Creasey and others. I served on an ad hoc advisory committee to the
then Deputy Minister of Home Affairs, Ms Mapisa-Nqakula, who was responsible for the Films and
Publications Board at the time. I participated in the investigation of an international child sexual
abuse and child pornography syndicate, the so-called “Operation Wonderland” case which also
involved police agencies in the United Kingdom and the United States.
I am an experienced police investigator and have testified as such in criminal courts frequently
during the past 28 years.
During 2010 and 2011 I was the prosecutor in a number of SAPS disciplinary hearings in Cape Town. I
was also the trial officer in several others. During that time I dismissed six members of the Service
for serious misconduct.
I left the South African Police Service on 31 December 2011 and completed my studies towards the
LLB degree in May 2012. The degree was conferred in October 2012 and I was admitted as an
advocate in December 2012. I completed the LSSA/UNISA School for Legal Practice course in 2013
and will write the attorney’s board examination in August 2014. My application for voluntary
removal from the Role of Advocates is currently being processed. I am currently serving articles with
Parker Khan Associates, Lansdowne.
I have been married for 32 years and have two adult daughters.
