NATIONAL police commissioner Riah Phiyega's former spin doctor will not receive any "preferential treatment" following embarrassing weekend revelations that he kept a brothel, a police spokesman said yesterday.
The Sunday Times reported yesterday that Makhosini Nkosi ran an illegal R500-an-hour adult entertainment establishment in Randburg while acting as Phiyega's spin doctor earlier this year.
His communications company, Makhosini Nkosi & Associates, was awarded a three-month contract with the SAPS that ended on June 11. It operated from the same premises as the brothel. Lieutenant-General Solomon Makgale said: "If he is involved in anything illegal ... there shall be no preferential treatment just because he happens to have done legitimate work for the SAPS." Nkosi denied yesterday that he operated a brothel. – Olebogeng Molatlhwa
