Mdluli interdicted from executing duties

2012-06-06 14:36

Pretoria - Richard Mdluli has been interdicted from executing his duties as a policeman, a North Gauteng High Court judge ruled on Wednesday.

This follows an application by the non-profit organisation Freedom Under Law to prevent him from serving on the police force.

Judge Ephraim Makgoba said in his judgment that the FUL “had shown a prima facie case”.

“The sooner this matter is dealt with, sooner confidence in the police and justice system will be restored,” Makgoba said.

FUL had asked that Mdluli be prevented from performing his official duties pending the outcome of a review - which it intends applying for - of the decision to set aside civil and criminal charges against him, and of the decision in March to reinstate him.

The charges ranged from murder to corruption and fraud.

    Why the hell could the ANCancer government not sort this out before it escalated so far.. useless.

      atholl.hay - 2012-06-06 15:07

      Indeed. Why did it take a non-profit organisation to eventually make this happen?

      @Herman, at least now you get to keep your nasty FB profile pic, without worrying about Richard

    Racism... eish

    The ultimate liable person for this mess is the minister(Mthethwa). Why cant he get fired for {dis}management.

      mastersvoice - 2012-06-06 15:00

      I would suggest the person ultimately responsible is the President of the country, Jacob Zuma. Whenever his cronies come under fire, he seems to be amazingly detached from it all, but that's probably because he is out of his depth. He simply doesn't know nor understand his role in all of this.

  • John - 2012-06-06 14:51

    Now what about his cronies that helped get the charges dropped? The SAPS and its members are meant to be apolitical.

      Deon - 2012-06-06 14:58

      His cronies might be very high up or the highest in the land.

    Bravo FUL for making sure that General Mdlulu will get his salary on Monthly basis without performing any Police Duties @ the expense of tax payers. I hope the police ministry wont interfere this time with the Suspension of Mdluli and let National Commisioner do his JOB.

    FUL stands for "The people are governing and the government is failing" Shame on you ANC for allowing a shoddy and compromised character like Mdluli to serve our democracy in whatever capacity. Once more thanks very much FUL

  • Tankiso Mogoje - 2012-06-06 14:52

    Good,what is left now is for us to get a sniper to take him on at his own game.Plus he's too connected for us to trust the courts,lol.

  • jaysonpaul.beckwith - 2012-06-06 14:58

    Appeal,, appeal,,appeal. And when the peal is finished. He will be fruitless. Just like his brain.

  • Mzamo - 2012-06-06 15:08

    Halala...!!! Give that judge a bells!!!!!!

  • Nomfundo - 2012-06-06 15:09

    Point of correction comrades!! Mdluli first served the apartheid police force as a security branch killing our people before serving Mandela and Mbeki. It's really shocking to see him being protected like this by the powers that be. Power to the people, VIVA FUL VIVA!!

    banana republic

  • Innocent - 2012-06-06 15:10

    Judges done a good interdiction to stop Mr Richard Mndluli to perform at duty up until final decision.

    Never underestimate the powers of the Freedom Under Law organisation, under the leadership of honourable ex chief justice Pius Langa ~_^)

    I really hope that he pays for the court cases himself. This should not be borne by the us, the tax payers!

      Eben - 2012-06-06 15:41

      Sadly you and I know that this will be the case and more, he will receive full remuneration for the trail period and be put on goverment pension with additionals like healthcare benifits and, and, and. That is how democracy in South Africa rewards.

  • Loo - 2012-06-06 15:37

    Yip he can not go and cover his tracks now.

  • Alan - 2012-06-06 15:43

    Don't reply to OvaprivilegedWhitey. He's just a troll who gets his jollies by posting irrational inflammatory statements.

  • busisiwe.kubeka1 - 2012-06-06 15:43

    I don't care about Mdluli but land to the black pple

      Ian - 2012-06-06 15:57

      Knob !

      Stille - 2012-06-06 16:08

      i have a 2 x 4 little plot, 6m deep. Unfortunately, i will only be able to fit you and your offspring in there. Given a trench digger and a few weeks, im sure i can make a plan for more land.

      Erna - 2012-06-06 16:11

      1. To do what with? 2. Murder, rape, corruption, fraud - all OK as long as you have land!

      nigel.burgess.52 - 2012-06-06 16:17

      And what will you do with this 'land'?

  • ngoako.mathekga - 2012-06-06 15:49

    Ooh Yeah! This is worth celebrating.

  • Mark - 2012-06-06 15:52

    I must admit I am impressed by the actions of FREEDOM OF THE LAW. Now may I ask that FOL also take the whole ANC government including our president to court for failing the electorate by being incompetent, nepotistic, despotic, corrupt and failing to do good on their promises as providing houses, creating employment etc for all. it will definitely make for an interesting outcome.

  • Ted - 2012-06-06 15:59

    Good work. I do not like pronouncing your acronym after such good work. I suggest you change it to FRULAW or something like that. Lol

      Mark - 2012-06-06 16:11

      I erred and you are correct. FRULAW is in fact the correct interpretation.

  • alu.ntsandeni - 2012-06-06 16:07

    Why can't we get rid of this guy already, just a waste of tax money.

  • phila.kunene.355 - 2012-06-06 16:23

    Loudly said why does the ANC continue with the court action when the Spear is already down! The Mighty Richard Mdluli was already suspended by his seniors and the decision upheld by the Labour Court which has jurisdiction over this case. The noise makers should have advised the white sponsored so called Non Profit Organisation called Ful to stop the court interdict and the "useful" judge presciding over the case should have asked FUL what purpose would it serve to continue. Could it be that the judge was intimidated by the skin with melanin like the white public protector Madonsela. Black and proud like I am,I salute black brothers like Mdluli who face their challenges head on and not chicken out. Richard wants to be paid for working but our useful judge has different views on the issue and Richard Mdluli enjoy a stress free 2012 winter season in the comfort of your own home which you own and not renting. By the way are RDP houses meant for Africans only and not descendants from Europe I mean the very far relatives of Simon van der Stel. Let us be honest not all whites in this part of Africa are doing well they can enjoy having a 4 room RDP which the ruling ANC provides freely.

  • Pedrosa - 2012-06-06 18:52

    Today the rule of law in this country rule supreme,this shows that no man is above the law,and reminds us that no man is indispensable.thumps up to those who stood up and speak against those individuals who are security risk to our country.
