JOHANNESBURG - Morris "Captain KGB" Tshabalala has appeared in court on charges relating to, among other things, stealing more than half a million rand from the police's secret service slush fund.
Tshabalala's bail application was set down for Friday amid confusion about his employment status.
On Thursday it emerged that, despite working for the police, Tshabalala was found to have a criminal record. He was, nonetheless, still employed by the security forces.
He also appeared to have been part of the security detail at the ANC's January 8 statement event at the weekend, where two heads of state were present.
WATCH: Look what #IPID officers found in the boot of Morris “Captain #KGB” Tshabalala. Keep an eye out for the two security tags: one is for an MKMVA event, the other, a security cluster tag for the ANC National Policy Conference in late June 2017. @eNCA pic.twitter.com/DRFs5PjUKf— Michael (@TheMikeAppel) January 18, 2018
