Johannesburg - The North West man accused of clubbing his wife to death with a hammer in Mahikeng was acquitted by the Mmabatho Regional Court on Friday, according to reports.

Jon Ndlovu was found not guilty by the court that cited negligence on the part of the investigator who did not read Ndlovu's rights when arresting him, the SABC reported.

Ndlovu was arrested last year after he called the police when he found his wife in a pool of blood and her skull cracked, the broadcaster reported.

The SABC reported that the state intends to apply for a leave to appeal.

    My vocabulary does not have words to express the anger and sadness I feel towards the "dont care" attitude of the justice system in this country! Powers that be seem content that murderes walk free daily just because the people who are paid to do a job dont!The worst is that there is no discipline given to those who "fail". I suppose they are just following their leaders!

      It is the price we pay for BEE...

      What does BEE have to do with this? Let's deplore incopetency cause it knows no colour. For the record, those BEE policies are meant to adress the atrocities and injustices perpetrated by white minority to the majority of black people in this country. True South Africans are not ashamed about that.
