The man who attempted to raise money for the assassination plan to kill former SA president Jacob Zuma, as well as a list of other republic’s politicians, has been found guilty on Tuesday.
The Johannesburg Magistrate’s Court has convicted resident Elvis Ramosebudi of two counts of attempting to incite and commit conspiracy to murder.
The criminal was arrested in Midrand in April 2017, after he sent the letters to the infamous businessman, Ajay Gupta, asking for funds to execute his murder plans. Besides Zuma, the list included the people who Ramosebudi believed were “white monopoly capital” supporters — former Public Protector Thuli Madonsela, former Government Communication Information System CEO Themba Maseko and former deputy finance minister Mcebisi Jonas.
“[The] State managed to prove beyond reasonable doubt that the accused attempted to incite the employees to conspire and kill those people he had mentioned in his letters”, Magistrate Collin Matshitse said.
