FALL OF THE KINGPINS
“According to a police spokesperson for the operation, at the time of Gwala’s arrest, around 80% of the rhino horn in the KwaZulu Natal province were going through his hands.”
“Gwala, I’ll stop writing stories about you when you stop killing rhinos.”
-Jamie Joseph, Saving the Wild
Saving the Wild, committed to pursuing high level targets profiteering from wildlife trafficking, had been gathering intelligence on Mr Big’s alleged syndicate for several months.
“But intelligence is inconsequential if there is no follow through,” says JP Roux, Head of Investigations for Saving the Wild. “We are grateful that the Hawks Endangered Species Unit, led by Colonel Johan Jooste, are committed to disrupting the supply chain, because that really is the game changer in this decade long bloody war. We are cheering them on as they continue to go from strength to strength.”
Regarded as one of the three major rhino poaching kingpins in South Africa, Mabuza started out as a common poacher and is now a force to be reckoned with. The alleged syndicate boss owns numerous properties and businesses in the province of Mpumalanga.
STATEMENT OF THE MINISTRY OF JUSTICE AND CORRECTIONAL SERVICES ON THE SUSPENSION OF THE KWAZULU-NATAL REGIONAL COURT PRESIDENT.
October 8, 2018
After considering the advice of the Magistrates Commission, Minister Michael Masutha on Friday the 5th of October 2018 provisionally suspended Mr Eric Nzimande, the Regional Court President for Kwazulu-Natal Division from office.
It is alleged, amongst others, that Mr Nzimande on various occasions approached the Deputy Minister recommending the acting appointment of a number of attorneys for them to act in the Regional Courts within his Regional Division and, in turn, received numerous payments from these attorneys. It is also alleged that Mr Nzimande wrongfully victimized and or sexually harassed, a female acting Regional Magistrate.
The Minister delegated the appointment of acting magistrates to Deputy Minister John Jeffery and he, after consultation with the Judge President of the KZN High Courts, decided to appoint Ms Sharon Marks as acting Regional Court President for KZN with immediate effect.
“KwaZulu-Natal Regional Court President Eric Nzimande has been suspended. This is a monumental victory for human rights and Justice For Rhinos. Saving the Wild would like to take this moment to thank the unsung heroes who have put their jobs and lives on the line in the battle to expose the ‘Blood Rhino Blacklist’. The battle is won, now the war begins…”
