COPE is not surprised by the appointment of Shaik in this important post, but we are concerned at this development. Shaik has distinguished himself as being unprofessional, partisan and has even breached state security by releasing classified information to the public during the Hefer Commission. That President Zuma can so blatantly reward the loyalty of Shaik with this appointment bodes nothing but ill for our democracy.

COPE will ensure that this public employee is monitored every step of the way to ensure his reputation for politicising the intelligence services is not behaviour he perpetuates in this new post.
