Mdluli denies getting suspension papers

2012-05-18 16:27

Johannesburg - Police Lieutenant General Richard Mdluli has denied being served another suspension notice, the SABC reported on Friday.

"No, I'm currently off sick and I'm busy attending [a] doctor with emotional stress," said Mdluli.

"I didn't receive anything. I don't have anything," he added.

KwaZulu-Natal newspaper the Daily News reported on Thursday that Mdluli, former head of police crime intelligence, and head of covert support Major General Solly Lazarus had each received a notice of intention to suspend on Wednesday.

Police spokesperson Brigadier Lindela Mashigo declined to confirm or deny the report.

"Whenever the SA Police Service serves notice to suspend a police officer, that arrangement becomes a matter between the employee and the employer."

Last week, Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa announced that Mdluli would be moved from his former post to a position in the office of the deputy national police commissioner for operations, Fannie Masemola.

Mdluli had charges brought against him last year, then withdrawn in connection with the murder of a lover of his former girlfriend.

He also had fraud charges brought against him relating to a secret fund and the purchase of vehicles. Those charges were also withdrawn.

A lobby group Freedom Under Law filed papers in the South Gauteng High Court this week, demanding that Mdluli be removed from the police altogether.

Mdluli was first suspended in 2011 when he was arrested on the fraud and murder allegations, but the suspension was lifted in March this year.

      Have to start preparing for terminal illness and golf lessons way in advance.

      Alan - 2012-05-18 16:53

      (Alan2) Deny, lie, claim you are sick - it's the ANC way. It's truly time to put some people of integrity (of all races) into power in South Africa before the ANC completely destroy it for everyone with their crooks, fraud and corruption.

      @Jacobus - definitely not terminal - otherwise he would have been on the golf course and not at home. . . .

      CliveK - 2012-05-18 18:22

      Yeah, as sick as Shabby Shaik.

      The latest news from the entertainment industry: Spike Milligan, Harry Seacombe and Peter Sellers are to team up up with the ANC Comrades in a brand new series called "The Gong Show". Starting on SABC 1 soon.

  • Deon - 2012-05-18 17:17

    stressed as you were caught out?

  • John - 2012-05-18 17:50

    He obviously thought it was a commendation for a promotion.. WHY would he receive something negative? They CANNOT do ANY wrong. They are just NOT capable of ANY wrongdoing. WHY? Because they have excuses for everything in life... Excuses why they absolutely HAVE to remind everybody of what happened in the past, which was obvioulsy ONLY to THEIR disadvantage. They are not capable of forgiveness, just so full of hate and full of themselves. Remember, none of them were ever used to such an abundance of power and money. After 18 years, they STILL did not get used to it. NEVER WILL!!!

    Deny, deny, deny! Is this the new war cry of the ANC ?

  • Erna - 2012-05-18 18:28

    Emotional stress, my foot! If even half the allegations are true it proves he has no emotions except maybe criminal ones.

  • Lacrimose - 2012-05-18 18:34

    We're experts at this now thanks N24, we know how it will end. The way it started, in complete absurdity. You'd think after all the schlock horrors we've been subjected to, all the outrageous scandals, the ANC would've learned the lesson by now.

      Lacrimose - 2012-05-18 18:52

      Heya Kensong! By the time I got to that story, comments were over 200. A person's voice gets drowned out in such a frenzy :)

  • jaco.fridaystreet - 2012-05-18 18:53

    Always the same isn't it? Pleading ill health when caught out. But what about all the emotional stress Mdluli and his brothers in crime have caused ordinary South Africans? Should we also now take a day or 2 off work to see the GP? The country will implode! Pitiful man!

      Lacrimose - 2012-05-18 19:07

      It is a tried and tested method of evading accountability. Find willing doctor have willing patient. Unless both the doctors and the patient can be proved to be fraudulent, this little courts can do. It's a demockery of justice

  • willem.wulfse - 2012-05-18 19:09

    Wonder how ill Zuma will become when his day of reckoning arrives. Highly unlikely but still, food for thought.

      jaco.fridaystreet - 2012-05-18 19:27

      After his schlong has been exposed internationally, perhaps as early as tommorrow for emotional stress and EDS. Hehehe...

  • Bless Boswell - 2012-05-18 19:59

    I wonder how come these guys are so proud to claim that they are suffering from stress. It's actually something one likes to keep rather private as its a clear indication that you cannot cope. Well guys, if you can't take the heat, get out of the kitchen! These are situations entirely of your own making - Don't start something you can't finish.

      Lacrimose - 2012-05-18 21:52

      We are the most stressed-out nation on earth - apart from war-zones. There's no shame in stress and acknowledging we've reached a point where we are unable to cope. We've all started things we can't finish, found ourselves up a creek without a paddle. Sometimes we need stress to change our behaviour - or to reveal the truth.

  • ArchAngel - 2012-05-19 09:20

    Long Overdue .. his wife should also investigated as, according to news media, every procedure was disregarded and every and rule was broken with her appointment to a senior position in Mdluli's department, one for which she did not even have the rudimentary skills to carry out with even a smidgen of competence. She should also be suspended then fired.

  • Rob - 2012-05-19 16:35

    Hey 'Ricky'. Why spend so much time 'dodging' acceptance of suspension noitce? You think it is going to go away at the wave of a wand ? You are 'guilty' as charged... Have the 'balls' to take what is coming to you like a man instead of 'whimpering' liked a whipped dog and blaming everybody else... Go buy yourself a new 'cell phone' from 'Cell 'C''.....if you get my 'drift'....

  • les.cunningham1 - 2012-05-19 19:13

    Always the first defence, "I deny". Always the first lie.
