Reports have it that an affidavit which emerged in Radovan Krejcir’s murder trial revealed a plot to kidnap and kill South Africa’s richest black guy.
Radovan Krejcir was arrested in 2013 and charged with kidnapping and murder in South Africa. His ongoing high court trial as learned was stalled after the Stated provided a sensitive affidavit which showed that the Czech criminal fugitive planned to kidnap and kill South Africa’s richest black guy – Patrice Motsepe.
As culled from an IOL report, one Lucky Mokwena divulged in his affidavit that he was a former hired gun for Krejcir.
According to Mokwena, Krejcir ordered a colleague in his presence to organize a meeting with Patrice Motsepe for a possible mining deal in Lesotho. But the intent was “to bring him (Motsepe) closer to us so that he could be kidnapped and forced to transfer money from his accounts to fraudulently opened accounts and then be killed.”
Mokwena narrated that he was conducting surveillance on Motsepe and that Krejcir paid police officials to track the billionaire’s cell phone in order to aid the surveillance.
Also, certain police and court officials were allegedly paid to discard the cases against Krejcir. Those named include: suspended head of the Hawks Major-General Shadrack Sibiya; a Colonel van Heerden of the Hawks; Germiston Hawks officer Modise Saddam Maropeng; a Captain Du Plessis of Bedfordview; a Captain Mogale; and an unnamed magistrate who drove a maroon Range Rover.
Reporting this, IOL related that the individuals implicated all denied the allegations and that neither the police nor Hawks is willing to comment on Mokwena’s claims.
SA Police Service reportedly directed questions to Hawks’ media spokesman, Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi. Who merely stated that the issue is before the court and that the Divisional Commissioner of Detectives, Lieutenant-General Kotsi Nkomo is in charge of investigating the allegations.
Nonetheless, Major-General Shadrack Sibiya, through his lawyer Ian Levitt, described the allegations against him as “absolute nonsense”.
Meanwhile, Patrice Motsepe, through his spokeswoman, related that he had never related with Krejcir or anyone associated with him.
