Mufamadi to break silence on Madikizela-Mandela’s claims

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Former Safety and Security Minister Sydney Mufamadi will give his side of the story regarding allegations that he sought to implicate the late Winnie Madikizela-Mandela in the murder of Stompie Sepei.

Mufamadi will on Monday morning address the media on claims made in the award winning documentary by Pascale Lamche that he put pressure on then Police Commissioner George Fivaz to re-start investigations into Madikizela-Mandela in an effort to have her tried for murder.

Claims made in the documentary by then head of the Murder and Robbery squad Henk Heslinga alleged that Mufamadi instructed Fivaz to find criminal evidence against Madikizela-Mandela.

In 1995 investigations into the Sepei’s case were re-started even as the coach of the Mandela United Football Club and police informer Jerry Richardson had been found guilty for the 14 year old’s murder and was serving time in jail.

Post the documentary, however, Fivaz has denied the claims saying the investigation was re-opened due to pressure from former DA leader Tony Leon who claimed to have new evidence on the case.
