Sibiya maintains Mdluli investigation was legitimate
The former Gauteng Hawks boss Sibiya has maintained that his investigation into Richard Mdluli was legitimate and that it cost him his career.
JOHANNESBURG – Despite the cross-examination on Thursday, former Gauteng Hawks boss Shadrack Sibiya maintains that his investigation into former Crime Intelligence boss Richard Mdluli was done according to the book.
Sibiya says he was assigned to investigate Mdluli and that there were no ulterior motives.
But the defense team has accused Sibiya of harbouring ill intentions towards Mdluli because he allegedly revived the case when it had already been investigated.
Sibiya is expected to take the stand for a third day at the South Gauteng High Court.
On Thursday, the defense’s Ike Motloang accused the former major general of fabricating evidence and objected to him testifying that he forgot important details of the case.
But Sibiya claims that because the investigation was conducted seven years ago and he was not hands-on, there are some aspects of the case he does not remember in detail.
Sibiya has maintained that his investigation was legitimate and that it cost him his career.
Sibiya is expected to take the stand again on Friday.
