Serious consequences await Mpumalanga MEC accused of murder, says Mabe

Johannesburg – Mpumalanga Agriculture MEC Mandla Msibi and two others are expected to apply for bail on Tuesday morning, as they face two counts of murder and one attempt of attempted murder.

Accompanied by his lawyer, Msibi handed himself over to the Mbombela Police Station on Monday.

He then appeared in the Nelspruit Magistrates Court and was remanded in custody.

It’s alleged that Msibi, 45, was involved in a shooting in August. The circumstances around the crime haven’t yet been disclosed.

Spokesperson of the African National Congress (ANC) Pule Mabe said that there would be serious consequences.

“Once a comrade is charged or indicted to appear in a court of law, the step aside rule automatically applies. And then the comrade will also then be expected to appear before the integrity commission of the African National Congress,” said Mabe.
