Orlando court magistrate Anton le Roux yesterday postponed the jewellery theft case against Winnie Madikizela- Mandela's relatives.
This after a stern warning to the prosecution to get their act together.
Mbuso Vutela, 47, Nolwazi Githuka, 44, her husband Paul, 46, and their children Jerry, 19, and Mpumelelo, 21, are accused of stealing Madikizela-Mandela's jewellery said to have been worth R4million at her home in Orlando West, Soweto, in February this year.
Madikizela-Mandela, who was present in court yesterday as a witness, was overseas at the time of the alleged theft.
Le Roux told senior prosecutor Nthabiseng Motsau to enure that the state was ready during the next appearance because no further postponements would be permitted.
"The state needs to consult further with all the seven witnesses and prepare properly for the trial," Motsau told Le Roux.
The only witnesses present were Madikizela-Mandela, her elder sister Nobantu Mniki and Superintendent Eric Nkosi.
The case was postponed for the third time yesterday, this time to March next year.
The accused are still out on bail of R3000 each.
