NELSON Mandela Bay’s new metro police chief, Pinkie Mathabathe, will report for duty next month.

Mayor Ben Fihla is expected to make the announcement at tomorrow’s council meeting.

Mathabathe, 49, confirmed that she had got the job. “I received the letter of appointment [and I am] starting on February 1,” she said this week.

She would not comment further.

Mathabathe beat Humewood police station commander Brigadier Ronald Koll, who was one of five candidates considered for the job.

Her biggest task will be to establish a 900-member force which city bosses plan to form from the merger of the traffic and security departments.
