Shoplifting charges dropped against Mfeketo's son

By Megan Hartogh

Shoplifting charges that were brought against the son of Cape Town’s former mayor, Nomaindia Mfeketo, were dropped on Friday. The charges against Ondele Mfeketo were withdrawn, after a security guard – who was the state’s only witness – did not turn up to testify in the Cape Town Magistrate’s Court. According to the Weekend Argus Mfeketo’s attorney William De Grass, asked magistrate Menzi Tyulu, to have the case struck from the roll, which was done. This now means that Mfeketo’s case may only be reinstated with written consent from the Western Cape Directorate for Public Prosecutions. Mfeketo was charged with shoplifting after stealing maize meal, fruit juice and potato crisps from the V & A Waterfront’s Pick n’ Pay in May 2005.
