All Charges against the KwaNdengezi Eight Dropped
The KwaNdengezi Eight were amongst the eleven comrades arrested on 19 May this year after a protest against their Councillor, the notorious Nqola (Mduduzi Ngcobo). Charges against some comrades were dropped some time ago and on Friday, 26 July 2013, all charges were withdrawn against the remaining eight comrades in the Pinetown Magistrate’s Court on the grounds that the police had not been able to provide any evidence against the accused.
