It's all a racist-driven plot - Mdluli

2012-05-11 08:40

Cape Town - Controversial former crime intelligence head Richard Mdluli says murder and fraud allegations are all part of a racist-driven plot against him.

In an interview with the Mail & Guardian, published on Friday, Mdluli claimed white journalists and white policemen brought from the Western Cape were targeting him, but that he was confident he would be cleared and get his job back soon.

He said he sleeps "very nicely" because he knows he is innocent of the charges levelled against him.

“I have never been involved in a murder. I have never been involved in the killing of anyone. For the 33 years I have been in the police, I have never pulled the trigger and killed a person in my life,” Mdluli said.

He denied being a friend of President Jacob Zuma or that he was being protected by Zuma.

Mdluli said his legal team were looking into all the allegations against him and that these would be proven untrue.

Mdluli also said he had not bought “fancy cars” and had not made irregular appointments. He said he was involved at a strategic level in senior management.

He would not comment when asked by reporters about rumours that people had been paid to make up stories about him.

He said he had not wanted to use police resources to prove his innocence.

He said the last year had been hard on his family. “We have been surviving and we have to survive.”

In a letter to President Zuma that was leaked to the media, Mdluli alleged that Hawks boss Anwa Dramat was plotting against him.

      Herman - 2012-05-11 08:59

      Only pathetic people pull the racist card...true colours shining through

      Freddie - 2012-05-11 09:00

      Wow, the race card... Like we haven't seen that pathetic excuse a thousand times already. Is that the best you can come up with Mdluli? I thought you had some connection to intelligence. Obviously I was mistaken.

      Jack - 2012-05-11 09:04

      Actually Mdluli your absolutely right, WHITES are RACISTS.....against CORRUPTION. Something that is obviously not considered wrong from where yu come from.

      Sean - 2012-05-11 09:07

      infijar.ken - 2012-05-11 09:08

      Freddie - 2012-05-11 09:10

      If any further proof was needed that this bigoted, racist fool was unsuited for any senior position, all doubt has been removed. You are the weakest link, goodbye.

      Genet - 2012-05-11 09:50

      Last resort of a man going down, down, down!!

      Bryan - 2012-05-11 10:08

      Alf - 2012-05-13 15:14

      When everything else fails, play the race card! Mdluli, you may play the race card, but you are not playing with a full deck!

      Gieljam - 2012-05-13 15:48

      Now he has really shot himself in the foot he is guilty as charged to have pulled out the racist card so quickly is an old trick and is these days so common as rape and is usually done to scare off persons ,but as I said he pulled the trigger..

  • Koos - 2012-05-11 08:45

    Don't tell me there are whiteys behind all this?

      Peter - 2012-05-11 08:54

      Its all apart of our races master plan to convict the corrupt and murdering murderer muhahaha... Oh wait thats what happens when you are accused of being a murderer and corrupt biggot.

      Squeegee - 2012-05-11 10:03

      You know someone is desperate when he plays the race card. This is almost an admission of guilt.

      Gareth - 2012-05-11 10:16

      Well now we know the truth Mdluli! As soon as someone in this position runs out of excuses and lies, they pull the race card! It really is the death-gurgle of spineless crooked slimeballs!

  • Martin - 2012-05-11 08:45

    when all else fails pull the race card....its not racism, its cos you are a criminal, murderer and all round destroyer of justice.

  • Christo - 2012-05-11 08:45

    Bla Bla Bla liar...

  • npretorius2 - 2012-05-11 08:45

    Always the race card...

      Gareth - 2012-05-11 10:16

      Well now we know the truth Mdluli! As soon as someone in this position runs out of excuses and lies, they pull the race card! It really is the death-gurgle of spineless crooked slimeballs!

  • ESETHU_HASANE - 2012-05-11 08:47

    Shame, poor misguided, deluded, psychopathic, lying, cheating, murdering SOB.

  • susan.wright.92 - 2012-05-11 08:48

    When will people start being accountable for their own actions instead of blaming apartheid or racism.

  • malcolm.molver - 2012-05-11 08:49

    What a delusional idiot! This is what happens when people like him are in a corner- they claim they are the victims of racism and accuse whites of everything imaginable. Mdluli, you are the racist! You are the criminal. But he won't go to jail. If you're a racist criminal, then you are rewarded with a top job by the equally racist and criminal ANC!

  • Erna - 2012-05-11 08:49

    Notice - WHITE journalists and WHITE policeman, and they all come from the Western Cape. How can anyone get away with being so dof?

  • Jay - 2012-05-11 08:49

    So Bru Mdluli, Are you also going to say that those MISSING POLICE DOCKETS were found in my MOM'S SAFE? I Rest My Case.....

  • TheVern69 - 2012-05-11 08:51 whites again...oe eh eh!

  • dave.prinsloo - 2012-05-11 08:51

    madlooli is a racist effing kahnt. He must be locked away on a golf course like shebeen fake. Forking Poohs

  • Gerhard - 2012-05-11 08:52

    This man is INSANE!!!! Now he blames aplot by white cops from the Western Cape??? OMG! Lock him in an asylum!!!!

  • Dennis - 2012-05-11 08:52

    Dear Richard or shall I just call you Dick, are you smoking your socks ? Why would we(the white people) send white journalists and white policemen from the Western Cape ? There are enough people, black and white, who would gladly take you out ..... permanently !!!

  • Christopher - 2012-05-11 08:53

    Yeah you get other people to pull the trigger for you, you coward!

      Michael - 2012-05-11 10:40

      And apparently it was HIS gun that shot Lolly Jackson. If you remember the killer phoned Mduli straight after he had killed Jackson...? Sounds fishy!!!

  • Phumi - 2012-05-11 08:54

    I have long said that there was a racist propaganda to undermine the sitting president of the country done through Mdluli. Tried it first by discrediting Mogoeng Mogoeng and failed. They tried again using Menzi Simelane and they failed. Mdluli is the latest victim of this ploy. Their obsesssion and hatred of Jacob Zuma is what drives these senister plots! Its meant to discredit his leadership and make him appear weak in his opponents! Why would they target a man who has served his country for over 33 years is mindboggling?

      ntokozo.dhlamini.3 - 2012-05-11 08:58

      Stop being an idiot, it was a black man that he killed and his family reported the mattter more than 10 years ago, he was a station commender at the time so it is possible that he used his power to evade arrest.

      Piet - 2012-05-11 08:59

      Have a Pink Smartie Phumi!

      Don.Tandy - 2012-05-11 09:02

      It doesn't take much to boggle your mind does it?

      dave.prinsloo - 2012-05-11 09:07

      poo me - if you ask nicely, i will

      Sean - 2012-05-11 09:08

      @Phumi - Do you have a ``mind`` ??

      Jay - 2012-05-11 09:09

      Get Well Soon Phumi...... Halalalalalala

      Pieter - 2012-05-11 09:23

      maybe you must "apply your mind" a bit more... maybe you will find that helen zille is the mastermind behind the "racist propaganda" you speak of, or maybe you will find a bunch of corrupt cronies in high places

      Michael - 2012-05-11 09:28

      Eish comrade face facts cause your comment just leaves sh1t on your face

      Herman - 2012-05-11 09:28

      Damn, you get real dumb people, but you phumi, must be by far the dumbest.

      Faan - 2012-05-11 09:36

      Phumi....not very clever are you?????

      Msika - 2012-05-11 09:40

      Phumi! you again? You know what...never I mind, it's not worth it. Oh by the way, I think you can be a good canditate for the ANCYL presidency job, they need smart poeple like you.

      Marie - 2012-05-11 09:41

      It does not make him appear weak ..... he is weak!!!

      Felix - 2012-05-11 09:46

      When will the anc learn to buy better spin doctors. Enjoying our tax money Phumi?

      Alison - 2012-05-11 10:45

      Phumi. Sho. You are an idiot. So which is it, then? 'racist propaganda' or 'obsesssion and hatred of Jacob Zuma'? Make up your mind. Or are they the same thing? It is not a race thing. We resent the ANC leaders because they are incompetent, embarassing and ruining this country one day at a time. How can I be tolerant of an organisation that is doing everything wrong, and causing pain and suffering to millions? Just think, if the ANC was doing their jobs, then people with your erm, intellect, could go to a special care facility free of charge. You could play with dolls and playdough and stroke the ponies. Instead we are stuck with you. (Ok, now you are going to bring up apartheid and racism again, right? don't waste your time.) I am so tired of this race card.

  • Jean - 2012-05-11 08:54

    Shame Mdluli, not much hope for you if you are ugly and dumb!! at least the models will get a break from this idiot's Bull crud!!

  • Gerdie - 2012-05-11 08:56

    So, the constitution and laws of our country (which he seems to have ignored) were written by racist white people from the Western Cape. Nice!

  • Jacques - 2012-05-11 08:57

    You stupid c-nt. Your china Selebi said the same . Cele still waiting with what he is going to come up with. Maybe the Ossewa Brandwag sighned some leases on his behalf without him knowing. Get your vaseline ready my friend Jackie is waiting for you . Rememba da golden rule SHOWA , SHOWA AND MORE SHOWA. Afterwards no showa , afterwards no powa. Good luck your white mafia western cape onderwaterbeestriltatoeerder polisieman

    ~~~~~Richard Mdluli plotting~~~~~~ "Let's see what options do I have... I have played the 'conspiracy card' that didn't work but with all the racial things happening lately maybe I should play the 'race card'.. That will get them going.... If all fails I'll pull Selebi-Shaik on them... That has never failed anybody... *evil laugh*"

      Msika - 2012-05-11 11:40

      Good one Lebo, lol.

  • chiepner - 2012-05-11 08:57

    DING DING DING - and 5 hundred points to you Mduli for playing the race card. WOW - one should of thought that by NOW the "It's because Im black" mentality would of been eradicated from cowards like you who misuses tax payers money and state recources for personal gain. I am seriously thinking about using "Is it because I am white?" card next time a traffic officer stops me for speeding. Need to see if it can work for me to because although I will be in the wrong I am sure that I am victimised because of my skin color and not because I am breaking the law. We all need to start thinking like this dont we?

  • lmadikwe - 2012-05-11 08:59

    Ok How does he explain 7 members of his family being appointment in the intelligence unit, secret fund, mysterious shootings towards a prosecutor. Mr Mdluli, so far you have proved your innocence like your confidant J.Zuma. Stop pulling the race card and dance to your music that you have been composing.

      Rob - 2012-05-16 18:33

      Do not use the words 'MDLULI' and 'INTELLIGENCE' in the same sentence/paragraph/same page.. The two do not exist to-gether...

  • Mimi - 2012-05-11 08:59

    WTF....has he even thought abt the man's plea whom he killed...was race not on his mind then...he killed someone 4 a girlfriend. Was race not on his mind when he was enriching himself, his family

  • Don.Tandy - 2012-05-11 09:00

    Showerhead wants to make him Thief of Police, he is already head of the intelligence unit, but the best defence he can come up with is to play the race card - what a prick.

  • ntunjab - 2012-05-11 09:00

    “For the 33 years I have been in the police, I have never pulled the trigger and killed a person in my life.” - Richard Mdluli, hell yes coz you were busy spying for your Boss Zoooma,busy enriching ur family....

  • sabongam - 2012-05-11 09:00

    Typical & Predictable...This issue has really gone pear-shaped for Mdluli now the oh so tiring race card excuse...And if correct procedures were followed he should have been suspended from the word go...Well, I can't call him a criminal since that has not been proven.But if the cover was what judged the book by then,mhhh,mhhh....

  • Christian J Denyschen - 2012-05-11 09:00
