Former spy boss drops spy tapes bombshell

2014-08-03 13:01

Johannesburg - Former spy boss Mulangi Mphego has dropped a bombshell and possibly opened the door for the DA to have charges of corruption reinstated against President Jacob Zuma after claiming the infamous spy tapes could not be attributed to Crime Intelligence.

According to the Sunday Independent, Mphego said the spy tapes that Mokotedi Mpshe used as reasons to drop the charges against Zuma "could not be attributed to Crime Intelligence. Remember I was head of Crime Intelligence at the time".

Mpshe was acting national director of public prosecutions at the time and dropped the charges against Zuma after recordings apparently suggested there was political interference in the case.

Mphego has meanwhile challenged Mpshe to produce the tapes, saying the tapes he listened to at the time are not the tapes Mpshe is referring to.

Mphego was forced to resign after being accused of interfering with state witnesses in the corruption case against former national police commissioner Jackie Selebi.

This comes only days away from Zuma's supreme court appeal following a high court decision ordering acting National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) head Nomgcobo Jiba to hand over a copy of certain tapes.

The DA has been fighting a five-year battle to obtain the secret recordings. The matter will be heard in the SCA on 15 August.

The tapes, transcripts, and other documents, relate to a decision the NPA took in 2009 to drop corruption charges against Zuma.


In papers filed as part of the appeal, Zuma maintains his representations to the NPA were made on a confidential basis.

Zuma contends that as president, political leader, and member of the African National Congress, he would be the DA's natural target.

He argues that denigrating him or using certain information to his detriment would advance the DA's political cause.

The DA in response would ask the SCA to decide whether the high court order forcing Jiba to give a copy of the tapes to the court registrar was appealable.

The high court held, in granting leave to appeal its order, that the parties had different interpretations of the order. The matter required the SCA to decide on the final interpretations, the court said.

      "The high court held, in granting leave to appeal its order, that the parties had different interpretations of the order" Call me ignorant but i do not understand - if the court order says they must hand over the tapes - how can there be different interpretations ???? with my understanding of this is HAND OVER THE TAPES how difficult is that to understand.

      Melck the reason is law is flexible not rigid . Putting a comma in the wrong place can change the meaning of a decision. Also Boo ma and cANCer don't repect and believe they are above the law .

      Nxasana is effectively replaced by Willie Hofmeyer already,to keep him away from the spy tapes and the Mdluli docket.The spy tapes,if they exist,was made by Mdluli. Number One thought he could control Nxasana.When he turned out more independent,especially after deciding to charge Mdluli,his fate was sealed

      Made-In SA - 2014-08-03 22:48

      The spy tapes,if they exist,was made by Mdluli.That is why Jiba protected him from prosecution.The lies can not last forever.

      Ashley Marks - 2014-08-04 05:59

      you can lie,steal and cheat but eventually the wheel turns.I hope the correct tapes now come to light and the world can see what is actually running this country

      Leon Nel - 2014-08-04 10:09

      and the reason, these spy tapes don't exists ! A figment of someones imagination to get Zuma of the hook.

      If Zuima feels the DA's will gain advantage over the ANC then maybe he must be removed and taken to court...then the ANC will be absolved from DA's wrath in finding the truth. Either way ZUMA is a liability for the ANC and country.

      Andre Jacobs - 2014-08-04 13:22

      -Yes Leon that must be it. They just had to have some "info" that was to cover for them and zum had all evidence destroyed or locked up securely in his zumville bunkers and safes. Way back he went to Mauritius to get some diaries and that will also be at zumville. The power of money and favours have sorted this problem out long time ago, -- now it is just to keep the fake tapes and "info" away from judical scrutiny. Nothing on them --probably some video tapes of a anc party and all telling dirty jokes.

      Reality - 2014-08-05 08:00

      > how will the wily Zuma extricate himself from this? Oh, there are many ways to skin a cat... Mulangi Mphego might have an "accident"..If he dies tragically then it is if he said nothing. If the judge get handed a few million as a backhander then he might chuck the case.. Zuma will only be in trouble if the cell door swings shut behind him.

      He would be the DAs natural target. But the reason for having an Opposition in a democracy is to have a check and balance; to ensure that you conduct yourself properly. So, is that any valid argument whatsoever???

      He's objecting to their release as the tapes might convict him of being a crook ,which we know he is,,

      There must also be an enquiry into Adv Nomgcobo Jiba,Adv Lawrence Mrwebi and Adv Moipone Noko,PDPP in Kwazulu Natal. They are the ANC team players in the NPA. Adv Jiba and Mrwebi were the ones who shielded Mdluli from prosecution against fraud charges,for defrauding the SAPS secret account out of millions of rands. Jiba also had Adv Gerrie Nel arrested to thwart him with going ahead with the arrest of Jackie Selebi.She also owes Number One big time,because Number One expunged the criminal record of her husband Booker Nhantsi,and he was appointed to a government job after that. Adv Noko and Mrwebi also decided not to go ahead with charges against Peggy Nkonyeni and Mike Mbuyakhulu,MEC members of the ANC in Kwazulu Natal,in the Gaston Savoi "Amigos" case in KZN,although the previous acting PDPP in KZN,Adv Mlotschwa,felt there was a case to be answered by Nkonyeni and Mbhuyakhulu.In fact Mlotschwa was removed,and replaced with Noko,simply because of this case. Noko also withdrew the case against Thoshan Panday,and colonel Navin Madhoe,from the SAPS in KZN,who tried to bribe Genl Johan Booysen with R2 Million.Thoshan Panday is a highly connected individual and a business partner of Edward Zuma,son of Number One. Noko also dropped the case against tenderpreneur Shawn Mpisane.

      That is a big problem when you have information and still employed. There is simply no protection for you. We have seen our legal system in Oscars case facts dont matter. Attack the person even if he or she is a professional discredit him or her to the extend that the judge did not intervene and nobody wanted to testify anymore. The press and all other so called professionals mostly lawyers jumped in like vultures with no opinions and freely made statements with simply no professionalism. When that is allowed nobody will come forward with anything. It is a sad state that this country is in.

He has been linked to so many corrupt and dodgy deals , to be clean . 3. He ferments racial tension and tribalism 4. His family seems to benefit from his intervention . 5. Has insulted african countries with his idiotic comments . 6. Lies to keep himself out of court. 7.

      Utopian Indigent - 2014-08-04 12:55

      Chabaneza he's not being targeted, he had legitimate normal corruption charges against him, which were dropped due to some obviously fake spy tapes, by an acting NPA head who barely lasted long enough to sign the charge-dropping. If you believe that your own government-controlled NPA is targeting the President with untrue dossiers then either you don't have a brain OR you acknowledge that your own organs of state are mad. There is a dossier which his own NPA compiled of realy evidence which the Head thought warranted a court case, for which that Head was replaced by a crony.

      Jaydee this has nothing to do with the Zulu and everything to do with a silent coup forced on South Africa when the Zuma clan used the misinformed confusion around Mbeki, to convince their ignorant conference and NEC to appoint Zuma.

    The Anc lie that they liberated us is just that a LIE. they did not win a military victory but owe their current status to an Afrikaner F W deKLERK who had the guts and forsight to go against the will of his own people realising that apartheid was not sustainable any longer. Thats my conviction.

      Sipho Tshakela - 2014-08-04 02:26

      Brad, u got it all wrong, your conviction is wrong in its entirety. The liberation movements, ANC, PAC and AZAPO employed a wide range of srategies to get the pathetic apartheid regime to its knees. To name but a few, sanctions, armed struggle and mass actions which were designed to make the country ungovernable. Your narrow-mindedness that only the war ought to be a sole decider is devoid of truth and highly misleading and mischievous to say the least. Hounorable former Pres FW de Klerk did not act out of his own free will, the writing was on the wall, the country was heading for calamity. He had no choice but to succumb to pressure exerted by our liberation movements. They indeed liberated us from the yoke of apartheid which you obviously enjoyed so much, we are now enjoying the fruit of democracy, bill of rights enshrined in the constitution, freedom of speech, freedom of religion, gays and lesbians enjoy themselves here in this beautiful land of ours, here in SA u can differ with the President and in some cases insult him if deemed fit without any fear of going to jail. If the ANC can get its house in order, do away with corrupt activities, cadre deployment at all costs, fraud, maladministration issues, crime. SA will be a model to watch envied by many, it will be a place to be. That's my conviction Meneer!

      Elton Laine - 2014-08-04 11:07

      Oh please Sipho Tshakela, your making up history. The main reason was international pressure and sanctions. Ironically, the people who liberated you, are the same people you hate today (USA and Europe). Bet you also conveniently forgot about the referendum.

      Elton Laine - 2014-08-04 11:09

      " If the ANC can get its house in order, do away with corrupt activities, cadre deployment at all costs, fraud, maladministration issues, crime. SA will be a model to watch envied by many" You are right there. But it won't happen.

      Dee Bone - 2014-08-04 19:58

      it was neither the ANC or the Nats who liberated this country. When we were the youth we started the Fight against apartheid without the help of the ANC. It wa swave upon wave of fight against oppression. The ANC saw the gap and took it. The NATS and ANC got together to leave us with this mess we now have. So many veterans of the struggle are sick to death of the ANC except those who follow the ANC like it is some sort of God. These are the 62% who betrayed the country and those who died in the battle against apartheid in the last two elections. Stupid idiots.

      Sipho Tshakela - 2014-08-04 20:42

      The truth will set u free, but it hurts too. My fellow South Africans all I was trying to do is exercise and enjoy some of the provisions contained in our constitution. I was not seeking to attract the wrath of hardened champions and architectures of draconian laws. I'm still standing by my conviction as been articulated above, u can carry on living in your apartheid era, but the fact of the matter is that only in your dreams will this motherland go back to such gross violations of human rights. U can kick and jump around like a spoilt brat for all I care but the truth will stay intact. I'm not even a supporter or member of the ruling party or any other political formation but I will always support and cherish those who have the best interest of my country at heart. We are living in a democratic dispensation, u are entitled to your balderdash I guess!

    The spy tapes and Nkandla are the political tools for the opposition . In the alternative they have none to offer the majority . This is why they will remain the opposition until satan comes

      This is a reflection of thinking by the 62% which will vote ANC into power despite the grave social ills our country has to endure. The same will apply in places like Zim, millions of people have had to leave Zim and look elsewhere for betterment of their lives. Infact they are all over the world and being subjected to xenophobic attacks and racism in some of the countries that they live in. But when the election comes around they vote uncle Bob back into power. Its a strange and crazy situation.

    Pres Zuma was at pain to explain that he wanted his day in court when asked about the conviction of notorious fraudster, Shabbir Shaik. Little did I know that he meant to run around like a headless chicken clutching at straws running away from facing his demons in a court of law. People like Bish Tutu have rightfully called upon him to please go and stand before a judge in a court of law and tell the nation about what actually happened with the fraud and corruption charges levelled against him. Please, please my dear President, there's still an ample of opportunity to do so, use it.

    Where was this Mphego all along! Now the plot thickens & Shower must face the music. NPA Head Mxolisi Nxasana does not want to go down alone.

    There are NO spy tapes - it was a spin to get those charges dropped so that Zuma and Mafia could steal with impunity, but they had to get into top positions first....well it worked - they conned a nation.

    The can of worms just grows bigger and bigger.

  • Jeannette Thomas - 2014-08-04 09:36

    Very cloak and dagger. Are these actual real tapes that exist or do they use the word "tape" meaning digital recording? Seems a bit old school and the archaic illustration to this story doesn't help either.

  • Calvyn Liebenberg - 2014-08-04 12:42

    Ha ha. Daar is bande, maar die ANC wil van Zuma ontslae raak. Vandaar die storie. Wens hulle kan dienste lewer soos wat hulle kroek, lieg en steel!
