Mooi River feud: State puts charges on hold

2010-05-06 00:00

THE charges against Mooi River farmer Peter Kean (47) and his co-accused, Vusumuzi Jali, in connection with the poisoning of 54 dairy cows in December 2008, have been provisionally withdrawn by the state pending further investigation.

The cows belonged to Kean’s brother, James, who hired a private investigator to look into the matter.

It was alleged that the poisoning was linked to an ongoing family feud between Peter Kean and other members of the family.
