Pretoria - The Soshanguve man accused of plotting to kill prominent politicians and businessmen associated with state capture and white monopoly capital has been found guilty - but not of the charges the State originally proferred against him.
On Tuesday morning at the Johannesburg Magistrate's Court, Magistrate Collin Matshitse found Elvis Ramosebudi guilty of alternative charges in the State's case saying the main charges have not been beyond reasonable doubt.
Matshitse ruled that Ramosebudi was guilty of two counts of attempt to commit conspiracy to murder.
The State's primary charges against the 35-year-old Soshanguve, north of Pretoria, resident, were conspiracy to murder and incitement to commit murder.
Its alternative charges were that Ramosebudi attempted to incite people to commit murder and that he attempted to commit conspiracy to murder.
