Alleged 28s gang boss Ralph Stanfield is back in Mitchells Plain after his bail conditions were relaxed because his mother and disabled sister are ill.
Stanfield made an appearance at the Mitchells Plain Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday where he is facing charges of intimidation and assault.
Similar charges against his mother, Francis Stanfield, have since been dropped.
His lawyer, Noordien Hassan, asked the court to relax his client’s bail conditions to allow him to enter Mitchells he Plain so he could look after his mother and sister.
Hassan told State Prosecutor, Advocate Goodman Jaxa, that Stanfield was needed to transport the women to doctors.

Stanfield’s bail of R100 000 still stood and he was warned not to contact or intimidate state witnesses.
He is expected back in court on September 15.

When he tried to enter his mother’s home; he was allegedly confronted by a detective who accused him of being protected by top cop Major General Jeremy Vearey.
