Prosecutor Mxolisi Nkomo told the court that they were not ready to continue with the case because further investigation was necessary. “We are not sure why it was brought to this court. We are also still waiting for the photos of the victim,” he said. He explained that the photos will form an important part of the State’s case.

Britz postponed the case to 17 May to give the State time to conduct their investigation.

All five suspects were remanded in police custody. They will apply for bail when they are back in court on 18 May.
