Multitalented artist Winnie Khumalo hopes her health will improve when she goes under the knife in J.
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.
