Helen Suzman Foundation welcomes the axing of Richard Mdluli

Police Minister Fikile Mbalula announced that suspended crime intelligence boss Richard Mdluli has been relieved of his duties at Crime Intelligence.

Director of the Helen Suzman Foundation, Francis Antonie says that here is an ongoing matter with the court assault and kidnapping, plus numerous other allegations aimed at Mdluli. READ: Richard Mdluli finally axed from Saps

For Antonie is will be well worth investigating if Mduli is entitled to his full benefits.

This seems to me to be an extraordinary situation we have gotten ourselves into. And that's why we welcome the police minister's decision today to stop this.

Another big story involving Crime Intelligence is the murder of a retired member of the organisation on the same days that Mbalula announced Mduli's axing.

EWN Reporter Mandy Wiener broke the story. She says at this point there is a lot of speculation around the story. The victim has yet to be named.

It is important to note two things, The one is that yes, he was retired, and the other is that he did work in Crime Intelligence. He was head of surveillence.

Antonie says that it seems like coincidence that this murder happened on the same day as Mbalula announcement, but more information is needed to avoid conspiracy theories.
