Mdluli co-accused to appear in court

2011-04-04 07:23

The Boksburg Magistrate’s Court was quiet today ahead of the appearance of a Lieutenant Colonel accused alongside crime intelligence boss Richard Mdluli of involvement in an apparent love triangle murder in 1999.

By 7.30am, there was no police or media present.

The 52-year-old policeman, attached to crime intelligence, was due to appear separately from his three accused, who are Mdluli, court orderly Sameul Dlomo, 49, and Colonel Nkosana Sebastian Ximba, 38.

The four stand accused of killing Oupa Abel Ramogibe 12 years ago and face charges including intimidation, kidnapping, assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm, murder, attempted murder, conspiracy to commit murder and defeating the ends of justice.

Mdluli and the two others appeared in the Boksburg Magistrate’s Court on Thursday. This was after Mdluli handed himself over to the authorities. The case was postponed to April 7 for further investigation.

Ramogibe allegedly received death threats after marrying Mdluli’s ex-lover and was allegedly told to leave her or he would be killed.

He had opened an attempted murder case before his death.

Mdluli, who was the station commissioner at the Vosloorus police station in Boksburg, east of Johannesburg, at the time, was accused of sabotaging the investigation.

The Mail & Guardian recently reported that the Hawks were also probing Mdluli and a colleague over allegations that they interfered with the investigation into Czech fraud accused Radovan Krejcir.

On Friday, the National Prosecuting Authority said there was no link between the Krejcir investigation and the Mdluli case.
