In an exclusive interview with Eyewitness News Robert McBride has said that the truth will finally be revealed following a second affidavit making it clear that he played no part in altering the so-called Zimbabwe rendition report.

Eyewitness News reports that senior Independent Police Investigative Directorate (Ipid) investigator Innocent Khuba pleaded guilty to dishonesty and defeating the ends of justice by altering the report.

The pair were accused of orchestrating the arrest and rendition of five Zimbabwean suspects in 2010.
