The former director claims Mufamadi wanted him to re-start investigations into Madikizela-Mandela in an effort to have her tried for murder.

In 1995 investigations into the Stompie Sepei case resumed.

This despite the Mandela Football Club coach and police informer, Jerry Richardson already serving jail time, after being found guilty for the 14-year-old’s murder.
