The case against an Ekurhuleni Metro police officer who allegedly sold ammunition to heist gangs was postponed in the Germiston magistrates' court yesterday.

Richard Msibi, 55, appeared briefly to face charges of unlawful possession of firearms and ammunition.

But the state and defence both asked for a postponement after Msibi's lawyer, Sibusiso Zulu, withdrew as his representative. The case was postponed to November 16 to give him time to find a new representative.

Zulu said he was withdrawing because Msibi had not paid him.

Msibi was arrested last month while on duty, in uniform, at a hostel in Actonville, Benoni, while allegedly trying to sell ammunition.

He was allegedly in possession of 122 rounds of ammunition for AK-47 rifles and more than 100 9mm rounds stashed in an ice-cream container.
