Ciskei's military dictator will face murder charges after the Supreme Court of the 'homeland' decided that Brigadier Oupa Gqozo was not 'above the law', AFP reports from Bisho. The judge rejected an objection by Brigadier Gqozo's lawyers that the head of state could not be tried as he was in a similar position to that of the British monarch. The judge said there was no link between the British law prerogative that the monarch 'can do no wrong' and Brigadier Gqozo's position.
