Alleged double murderer Frans Seroba appeared briefly in the Wynberg magistrates' court in Johannesburg yesterday.

Seroba, 49, a consultant at an insurance company, allegedly gunned down his wife, Martha Seroba, on January 20 at their house in Buccleuch, Johannesburg. He then took his 10-year-old twin sons to his mother's house in Diepkloof.

After leaving the children with his mother, Seroba allegedly went looking for Sarah Makwati, his wife's sister. He went to her work, a doctor's consulting room in Braamfontein, and allegedly shot and killed her.

Seroba is out on R20000 bail.

His case was postponed to June 6 pending a decision by the Directorate of Public Prosecutions on whether the trial will take place in the Wynberg magistrates' or the high court.

"We lost two lives on that day. It was tragic, all we want now is for the law to take its course," said Makwati's grieving husband, Basemang Makwati.

"The person responsible for this horrible crime has to pay."
