AKA’s murder case postponed


AKA’s murderers appear in court today

AKA’s murder case has been postponed to next week Friday for bail verification purposes.

Five of the seven suspects arrested for the murders of the rapper and his friend Tibz appeared at the Durban Magistrates Court today.

The suspects are, Lindokuhle Thabani Mkhwanazi (30, Lindani Zenzele Ndimande (35) Siyanda Eddie Myeza (21), Mziwethemba Gwabeni (36) and Lindokuhle Lindo Ndimande (29).

They are charged with murder, conspiracy to commit murder, attempted murder, and unlawful possession of firearms and ammunition.

The defence said, “Your worship, the accused might be granted bail, what will happen to them when they return to their communities? Also the proceedings are being broadcast live and they will put the lives of the accused at risk.”

The defence also asked the court that they wish for accused 1,4 and 5 to be kept at Chatsworth Police Station and not in Westville prison pending bail application.

“It is difficult to consult with accused when they are kept in Westville,” said the defence and accused number 4 complained that he was not being treated very well.

However, the magistrate reminded the defence of accused 2 and 3 that they are already in prison for other matters.

“Unfortunately, I cannot help you gentleman, we cannot move them from prison to a jail cell, that will be difficult” he said.
