Police take Mpofu's statement
Police are hunting for two men implicated in the stabbing of Dali Mpofu.
JOHANNESBURG - Eastern Cape police on Saturday took a statement from advocate Dali Mpofu, who was stabbed earlier this week.
His wife, Mpumi said her husband is still in a stable condition, despite the seriousness of his injuries.
Mpofu was stabbed several times on a beach in East London and robbed of his personal belongings.
Police said they are still hunting for the two men implicated in the crime.
Mpumi told Eyewitness News on Saturday morning that her husband is stable.
She was however unwilling to provide details about his medical condition.
Police took a statement from him on Friday afternoon.
The prominent lawyer was accosted by two men near East London's Eastern Beach, where he was robbed and stabbed several times.
Mpofu is one of the advocates representing wounded and arrested miners at the Farlam Commission of Inquiry who were shot by police in Marikana last year.
His stabbing comes just weeks after a sangoma who was due to testify at the commission was shot and killed in the Eastern Cape.
The commission has said it does not believe the incident is related to Mpofu's work.
