Richard Mdluli to come in from the cold

2013-09-08 06:00

Notorious police spy boss Richard Mdluli, who last year pledged to “assist” President Jacob Zuma, is poised to come back in from the cold.

City Press can today reveal the acting head of the police’s beleaguered crime intelligence division, Chris Ngcobo, who was appointed caretaker after Mdluli’s suspension last year, has “abandoned” his post as a result of being undermined by a pro-Mdluli faction.

City Press has also confirmed national police commissioner General Riah Phiyega will this week lend her support to an argument that a North Gauteng High Court order barring Mdluli from returning to work should never have been granted.

The interim order was obtained last year by Freedom Under Law (FUL) in a court review of decisions by the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) and the police to drop Mdluli’s criminal and disciplinary charges.
