Mdluli love rival judgment expected

2012-11-02 06:42

Judgment is expected in the Boksburg Magistrate’s Court in an inquest into the death of former crime intelligence boss Richard Mdluli’s love rival.

Oupa Ramogibe died in February 1999 and the inquest was instigated to determine if foul play was part of his death.

The Ramogibe family accused Mdluli of killing him after he married Mdluli’s ex-lover, Tsidi Buthelezi.

Mdluli claimed there was a plot to implicate him and that the Ramogibe family was working with the police.

“I’ve accepted that there is a plot against me – there is nothing else I can think of. As for who – I don’t know,” he testified on September 19.

Mdluli was accused of the murder along with Samuel Dlomo, Colonel Nkosana Sebastian Ximba, and Lt-Col Mtunzi-Omhle Mthembeni Mtunzi, but the charge was provisionally withdrawn in February pending the outcome of the inquest.

Also withdrawn were charges of intimidation, kidnapping, assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm, attempted murder, and conspiracy to commit murder.

A number of people were called to testify in the inquest that started on September 3, including Ramogibe’s relatives, Dlomo and Mdluli’s former colleagues.
