Murder charges against Mayor Mluleki Ndobe provisionally withdrawn
Murder charges against Harry Gwala District Mayor Mluleki Ndobe and one of his co-accused have been provisionally withdrawn.
Ndobe and his co-accused were arrested last week in connection with the murder of former African National Congress Youth League general-secretary Sindiso Magaqa.
Magaqa died in hospital in September 2017 after he was shot in Umzimkhulu.
Ndobe and his co-accused appeared in court on Monday.
Mail & Guardian Reporter Paddy Harper has more on the story.
The prosecutor told the court that there was a further investigation process needed to substantiate the charges and it would be unfair to keep them in custody until then.Paddy Harper, Reporter - Mail & Guardian
Ndobe's supporters had already been claiming over the weekend claimed that it was a politically motivated arrest and prosecution, this is going to make it more difficult for the state to argue otherwise.Paddy Harper, Reporter - Mail & Guardian
