Bail violated: ex-Howick cop arrested again

2011-08-31 00:00

FORMER Howick police sergeant Mlungisi George Khena was arrested again on Friday for allegedly violating bail conditions relating to a charge of armed robbery in 2004.

Details of the matter were not available as Hawks spokesperson Colonel Vishnu Naidoo could not be reached before going to print. Khena has been in the news for a number of cases, including extortion, which was later withdrawn because he was not charged within the prescribed 48 hours.

He was arrested and released early this month. A source in the Hawks said the withdrawn charge of extortion will be added to the charge sheet when he appears in the Pietermaritzburg Magistrate’s Court today for his bail application to be reconsidered.

Khena will be going to the Ladysmith Magistrate’s Court on October 14 for sentencing in another case of extortion.
