It's all a racist-driven plot - Mdluli

2012-05-11 08:40
Cape Town - Controversial former crime intelligence head Richard Mdluli says murder and fraud allegations are all part of a racist-driven plot against him.

In an interview with the Mail & Guardian, published on Friday, Mdluli claimed white journalists and white policemen brought from the Western Cape were targeting him, but that he was confident he would be cleared and get his job back soon.

He said he sleeps "very nicely" because he knows he is innocent of the charges levelled against him.

“I have never been involved in a murder. I have never been involved in the killing of anyone. For the 33 years I have been in the police, I have never pulled the trigger and killed a person in my life,” Mdluli said.

He denied being a friend of President Jacob Zuma or that he was being protected by Zuma.

Mdluli said his legal team were looking into all the allegations against him and that these would be proven untrue.

Mdluli also said he had not bought “fancy cars” and had not made irregular appointments. He said he was involved at a strategic level in senior management.

He would not comment when asked by reporters about rumours that people had been paid to make up stories about him.

He said he had not wanted to use police resources to prove his innocence.

He said the last year had been hard on his family. “We have been surviving and we have to survive.”

In a letter to President Zuma that was leaked to the media, Mdluli alleged that Hawks boss Anwa Dramat was plotting against him.
