Dube suspects' case postponed

By unknown | Oct 31, 2007 | COMMENTS [ 0 ]

The four men accused of killing reggae star, Lucky Dube appeared briefly in a Johannesburg magistrate's court yesterday.

They appeared before Magistrate Pieter du Plessis, who postponed the case to November 30 for further investigation.

Mozambicans Sifiso Mahlangu and Julius Gxowa, and South Africans Thabo Maropeng and Mabuti Mabe, face charges of murder, attempted hijacking and the possession of two unlicensed firearms and stolen property.

The four are yet to bring formal bail applications after the state opposed bail during their first appearance last week. They remain in custody at the Johannesburg central police station cells. - Zinhle Mapumulo
