Three out of four Sowetan readers rate embattled Ekurhuleni police chief, Robert McBride, a zero.

Of the 1198 readers who responded to last week's poll, only 312 - or 26percent - believe McBride, who stands accused of drunken driving after rolling his official car last year, was a hero.

Sowetan ran a survey last week in which we asked readers to vote for McBride as either "hero" or "zero".

Of the readers who voted through our website, via SMS, fax or email, 886 - 74percent - felt McBride deserved no praise.

Underlining the growing popularity of Sowetan Online, most votes - 1024 - were recorded through the website where 79percent rated McBride a zero while 21percent said he was a hero.

Eight readers e-mailed us that he is a zero and six e-mailed that he is a hero.

Of the 154 readers who sent their votes via SMS, a narrow margin of 55percent rated McBride a hero, while 69 gave him zero.

Three Metro police officers obtained a court order against McBride for intimidating them and their families.

McBride claims Stanley Segathevan, Patrick Johnston and Itumeleng Koko are involved in armed robbery, stolen vehicles, fraud and corruption.

Though they initially supported their boss after his accident, the officers recently changed their version of what had happened.
