Court orders Mbalula, KSD to pay R1.5m for wrongful arrest
Mokoena was in parliament yesterday and unable to comment after he was awarded R130000, while two EFF officer-bearers will get R115000 and 11 co-plaintiffs will get R105000 each.
The group initially sued the municipality (first respondent) and the minister of police (second respondent) for R11.9-million.
The Daily Dispatch reported in 2015 that EFF member of parliament Fana Mokoena, EFF’s OR Tambo interim regional coordinator Mbuyisi Mgibisa and the EFF’s KSD ward 7 leader Sisa Xundu, were arrested and accused of defeating the ends of justice. Other residents of KwaRay informal settlement, now called Maiden Farm, were arrested for land invasion.
