No firm evidence against Mdluli - Hawks

2011-10-19 11:11
Johannesburg - The Hawks have not been able to get concrete evidence linking suspended crime intelligence boss Richard Mdluli and his co-accused to the disappearance of two Vosloorus men, a spokesperson said on Wednesday.

"It's not so clean cut... We have made inquiries with the two families," Colonel McIntosh Polela said.

"We don't rule out that there is a link, but until we have concrete evidence we can't say anything."

Polela said the interest in Mdluli and Colonel Nkosana Ximba was sparked because Ximba was the last person seen with the two men.

Murder, kidnapping cases


The Times newspaper reported on Wednesday that the Hawks were looking into the disappearance of people believed to be crime intelligence informants from Vosloorus on the East Rand more than 13 years ago.

Lunga Khumalo, then 21, and Thulani Shoba, then 24, were last seen by relatives when Ximba allegedly picked them up from their Vosloorus homes in a police car. Their families had reportedly pleaded for help finding their sons for years, to no avail.

A number of murder and kidnapping cases linked to Mdluli were also being investigated, according to the report.

Mdluli and three others are expected to go on trial in the South Gauteng High Court in April on charges of intimidation, kidnapping, assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm, murder, attempted murder, and conspiracy to commit murder.

They are accused of involvement in a decade-old love triangle murder. Mdluli faces an additional charge of defeating or obstructing the course of justice.
