A trade union has called for the Ekurhuleni metro police's internal affairs division to be disbanded immediately.

The union's call comes after members of the unit allegedly removed metro police chief Robert McBride from the scene of a road accident - before police could gather evidence.

The SA Municipal Workers Union (Samwu) said yesterday that the internal affairs division was "a law unto itself".

It had also victimised metro police members who are shopstewards, Samwu spokesman Koena Ramatlou said. - Kingdom Mabuza
