Probe into 'right-wing terror plot' continues
It has emerged that four right-wingers also intended to poison the water at the ANC Mangaung conference.
JOHANNESBURG - Prosecutors in the case against four right-wingers accused of planning to bomb the ANC’s Mangaung conference said they're waiting for the outcome of a police investigation.
It has now emerged the men were planning to poison the water at the Mangaung conference.
The men were arrested last year just ahead of the ruling party's December conference.
At least one of the men was caught in possession of a substance that could have been used to contaminate water at the gathering.
The four face charges of treason and terrorism in the Bloemfontein Magistrate's Court for their alleged plot to overthrow the ANC government and kill President Jacob Zuma.
On Friday, their bail application was postponed to 23 January.
The NPA’s Phaladi Shuping said prosecutors were confident they had a strong case for the men to answer to.
“According to the affidavit of the arresting officer, one of the accused was found with a poisonous substance to poison the water somewhere in Mangaung.”
