Mduli murder inquest under way

2012-04-30 07:18

The inquest into the death of crime intelligence boss Richard Mdluli’s ex-lover’s husband continues in the Boksburg Magistrates Court today.

The matter relates to the murder of Oupa Ramogibe in 1999. Ramogibe was married to Mdluli’s ex-lover when he was gunned down in what appeared to be a robbery.

At the time of the crime Mdluli was the branch commander of the Vosloorus police station.

Criminal charges against Mdluli and his accomplices, Samuel Dlomo, Colonel Nkosana Sebastian Ximba and Lieutenant-Colonel Mtunzi-Omhle Mthembeni Mtunzi were provisionally withdrawn in February, pending the outcome of the inquest proceeding.

The initial charges against them included intimidation, kidnapping, assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm, murder, attempted murder and conspiracy to commit murder.

Magistrate Jurg Viviers said the inquest was not about finding someone guilty, but to ensure that guilt would not remain hidden if it did exist.
