Reprieve for Winnie cops
No case to answer against two policemen who pulled over a speeding car transporting ANC VIP Winnie Madikizela-Mandela
The case against two police officers, Warrant Officer Jannie Odendaal and Constable Abel Twala, has been withdrawn in the Johannesburg Magistrate's Court, AfriForum said in a statement.
Odendaal and Twala were accused of intimidation, assault and aiming a firearm by the driver, after they pulled over her vehicle on the M1 North in Johannesburg in December 2010; the driver was allegedly driving recklessly at a speed of 150 km/h.
Last year the same case was withdrawn in court, but the police officers were later charged again.
Odendaal and Twala's internal hearing is still under way.
