Crime and police brutality

Recommended Posts

These crimes are happening on a daily basis - not all of them end so amicably though - in many cases there are dead people!





This is also a daily thing - not everyone is able to film it though.


Johannesburg - All eight policemen accused of killing taxi driver Mido Macia were on Tuesday found guilty of his murder.

"Accused one to eight, you are found guilty of murder," Judge Bert Bam told them in the High Court in Pretoria.

The police officers were charged with assaulting and killing Macia on Tuesday, February 26, 2013.

One of the policemen initially accused of murdering Macia, Constable Matome Walter Ramatlou, 37, has been acquitted because there was no evidence against him.

Ramatlou was the only one of the accused who was not dismissed after a disciplinary hearing, and had already resumed his duties as a police officer last year.

The remaining accused - Meshack Malele, 46, Thamsamqa Mgema, 35, Percy Jonathan Mnisi, 26, Bongamusa Mdluli, 25, Sipho Sydwell Ngobeni, 30, Lungisa Gwababa, 31, Bongani Kolisi, 27 and Linda Sololo, 56 - all pleaded not guilty.
