"He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favour from the LORD." - Proverbs 18:22.
Mamasela, 57, allegedly shot and killed his landlord Lali Joseph Nhlapo who wanted to evict him in July last year.
State advocate Xolile Khanyile said some witnesses were being intimidated by a defence witness called Tsakane and asked for a postponement.
But the defence objected, saying the state was in a big hurry to place the matter on the roll without having done its homework.
Mamasela was warned to appear in court again on March 22.
