The suspended former National Police Commissioner, Riah Phiyega, and suspended Head of Crime Intelligence, Richard Mdluli have jointly pocked about 11.5 million rand while sitting at home serving their suspension.

Phiyega has received almost R3.2 million, including half a million rand as a cash allowance, an almost R300 000 ‘head of department’ allowance and over R330 000 in employers pension contribution.

Mdluli netted R8.3 million, including a basic salary of almost R5 million, a non-pensionable cash allowance of nearly R1.4 million, an employee pension contribution of almost R800 000 and a motor car allowance of over R700 000.

Suspended crime intelligence boss Richard Mdluli has reportedly received a “service bonus” of more than R400 000 while sitting at home.

Mdluli was suspended as the head of crime intelligence in 2011 while Phiyega was suspended in 2015 following Marikana inquiry over the death of 35-mine-workers in the hands of police while she was in-charge as a police commissioner.
