Wa Afrika charges officially withdrawn

2010-09-08 13:01
Johannesburg - Charges of fraud, forgery and uttering against Sunday Times journalist Mzilikazi Wa Afrika and Mpumalanga government employee Victor Mlimi were withdrawn by the Nelspruit Regional Court on Wednesday.

"The charges were withdrawn in court. Both accused were present with their legal representatives," said National Prosecuting Authority spokesperson advocate Mthunzi Mhaga.

The court ordered that some items, including a passport be returned.

The two were arrested on August 4 on charges of fraud and defeating the ends of justice. The charges were withdrawn briefly before the other three charges were brought against them.

A third person, who was originally arrested, was not on the charge sheet.

The case is thought to be linked to a letter of resignation by Mpumalanga Premier David Mabuza sent to President Jacob Zuma, which Zuma's spokesperson declared a fake.
