'Nelson Mandela funeral interpreter is accused killer and rapist'

See also

The Sign language Interpreter for Nelson Mandela's funeral first claimed he was having a schizophrenic moment when on stage next to top world leaders from China, Brazil, Cuba, India and the USA. This alarming fact; a mentally ill person could position themselves there at that time, was surprising to say the least.

eNCA claims they can reveal through their investigations Jantjie has had charges brought against him for rape in 2004, theft in 2005, housebreaking in 2007, malicious damage to property in 2008, and attempted murder and kidnapping in 2003. Many of these charges were dropped simply due to the fact Jantjie was not sane enough to stand trial. He was convicted of the theft charges but it's not clear if he even spent any time in jail. The murder and kidnapping charges were referred to the South Gauteng High Court back in 2004. As of today the case file is simply empty.

Jantjie has refused to make any comments on the charges and allegations. He admitted to being heavily medicated for treatment of schizophrenia while preforming his job duties and has been hospitalized as a patient at Sterkfontein Psychiatric Hospital in the past.

eNCA obtained all this information in less than 48 hrs. What kind of security checks is our government depending on for protection; protection of not only our leaders but our fellow citizens at these events?
