Murder accused former Mpumalanga Agriculture MEC Mandla Msibi resumes his bail application today at the Nelspruit Magistrates Court, SurgeZirc SA reports.

Msibi has been in a heat of controversy following his alleged involvement in a shooting where two people were fatally shot, and a third person wounded on Sunday, August 22, 2021, in Nelspruit.

SurgeZirc SA recalled that the embattled Msibi is facing a two-count charge, but has pleaded not guilty to the allegations stating that he did not see who was shooting and only heard the gunshots.

The embattled Msibi was fired following an announcement by the Mpumalanga Premier Refilwe Mtshweni-Tsipane during a press briefing last week. He has however been replaced by Busisiwe Shiba who is the MEC for Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs.

Also reacting to the murder case, Premier Mtshweni-Tsipane noted that Msibi dismissal was what is best for the ANC and the accused as it was a necessity that will afford him the time to focus on his trial. He said that if the accused is proven to be innocent then he can return to service.

“I have determined that MEC for Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs, Busisiwe Shiba, will continue to act in the Department of Agriculture, Rural Development, Land and Environmental Affairs until it would have been filled substantively,” the premier said.
