Mdluli may be vindicated
Former crime intelligence head Richard Mdluli is expected to learn his fate in October.
JOHANNESBURG - Former crime intelligence head Richard Mdluli will know whether he will be prosecuted for the murder of Vosloorus man Oupa Ramogibe by the end of October.
This was heard in the inquiry into Ramogibe's death being heard in the Boksburg Magistrates Court.
Mdluli was charged with the crime but this was withdrawn pending the outcome of the inquiry.
During a brief discussion with lawyers after proceedings on Friday, Magistrates Jurg Viviers said he expects to make a decision by the end of October.
There are just four days left in the inquiry which concluded its third week on Friday.
Viviers has allowed the lawyers for the state and defence to submit their summaries of evidence in writing.
Mdluli has maintained he has no part in Ramogibe's murder and that he is the victim of a plot to oust him from the police.
Earlier this week, Mdluli testified and told the court he was being targeted.
Mdluli spent two days at the witness stand.
After the evidence heard this week, it appears he may be vindicated.
