Johannesburg - A former senior police officer accused of fraud will face more charges when he appears in court next month, Mpumalanga police said on Thursday.

Lieutenant Colonel Leonard Hlathi said 15 charges would be added against Vusi Mdakane, 52, when he appears in the Nelspruit Magistrate's Court on April 4.

He said Mdakane was arrested on August 19 on two charges of fraud, after he claimed for kilometres allegedly travelled for private purposes.

Mdakane, who held the rank of brigadier, was dismissed on December 1 after an internal disciplinary found him guilty.

He was granted bail of R1 000.

    I wonder how many mp's were prosecuted for the travel gate scandal. People like mdluli are getting away with murder- literally, the honorable JG Zuma never saw his day in court for the arms deal, etc. George Orwell new what he was talking about in his Animal farm.

    Why has this one policeman been singled out for prosecution when we know that the whole force is up to something or other?

    @Ndumiso Only if such info will reach most people in the townships and squatter camps will we be on course to show the guys that the people are their bosses. But we must not give up. We must expose them as much as we can, in shebeens, funerals, soccer matches etc. We also should not allow the race issues on this platform to sidetrack us from the real issues.
