alleged murder
Ndobe and his co-accused were arrested last week in connection with the murder of former ANCYL general-secretary Sindiso Magaqa.

Murder charges against Harry Gwala District Mayor Mluleki Ndobe and one of his co-accused have been provisionally withdrawn.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.

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.
