Six suspects, including two brothers, in the syndicate that burnt four security guards to death appeared briefly in court yesterday to face four counts of murder and one of armed robbery.

Brothers Madlazi Dlamini, 40, and Mandla Dlamini, 28, both of Soshanguve in Pretoria, appeared before Magistrate Andre van der Kooi in the packed Mokopane circuit court.

The pair was arrested in Soshanguve at the weekend.

The four SBV security guards were transporting money to Lephalale on September 29 when the suspects allegedly poured a flammable substance on their vehicle and set it alight.

Dirk Kleynhans, 25, Deon Steyn, 20, Marcus Malete, 25, and Hennie Botha, 25, died in the inferno.

Limpopo police said they expected to make more arrests because they believe more people could have been involved in the attack.

Van der Kooi postponed the hearing to November 11 to allow the police more time to conduct investigations. The accused were remanded in custody.

Outside the court building a group of people, mainly relatives of the deceased, waved placards and chanted anti-bail slogans.

Police maintained a presence and no incidents were reported.
