The Marapyane periodical court yesterday postponed a case of kidnapping and assault against a Mpumalanga businessman to October 3.

Solly Madileng, 48, who also faces a separate charge of attempted murder, is accused of kidnapping and assaulting his employee, Ephraim Makitla, of Seabe village, who he accused of stealing from his shop.

This was after Madileng's supermarket was broken into. The businessman insisted that Makitla was involved in the burglary.

He laid charges against Makitla but the case was withdrawn because of insufficient evidence.

Madileng then allegedly kidnapped Makitla, locked him in a house and assaulted him.

Makitla later laid a charge of assault and kidnapping against his boss.

Madileng was arrested and granted R5000 bail.

While on bail, Madileng allegedly shot his wife Maki, 40, several times after she told him she was leaving him.

Maki survived the shooting and is recovering in hospital.

Maki's family said they believed the shooting would not have happened had Madileng not been granted bail.

At the time of the alleged shooting, Maki was staying at her parents' house after moving out of their marital home.

Police said Madileng went to visit her to discuss reconciliation.

The two left in his car and as they were driving an argument started and Madileng allegedly shot his wife randomly.

After shooting her, he allegedly threw her out of the car and left her lying unconscious on the side of the road. She was found by cattl herders the next morning.

Madileng will appear again tomorrow at the Temba magistrates' court on a charge of attempted murder.
