By Lindelani Mbatha

National police commissioner Kehla Sithole says SAPS has provision for whistle blowers within the organisation to report corruption with the guarantee to be protected.

Sithole has been briefing the parliamentary justice committee on SAPS Contract Management and Procurement processes this afternoon.

He says section 34 of the police act tied up all station commanders to make sure that corruption is reported.

"Then there is an internal toll free number that is linked to cooperation communication and the is also the presidential hot line there's provision's that is ready to report corruption, 

so we are using these avenues but we have just approved the anti-corruption strategy and the is also the ethic committee that will also be dealing with reports pertaining to corruption 

and linking them to anti-corruption strategy" he ended.
