THE four Limpopo men who allegedly implicated an ANC councillor in the murder of her boyfriend will have to wait a little longer before they know their fate.
This was after the Thabamoopo magistrate's court postponed their bail application yesterday to November 18 in order to get a neutral magistrate to preside over the case.
The current magistrate could not handle the bail application of the four accused because he was previously involved in the bail application of the implicated councillor.
Moses Mmurwa, 21, Gift Mphahlele, 18, Lekole Maribe, 21, and Madimetja Kgomo, 28, appeared alongside Lepelle-Nkumpi municipality councillor Patricia Mphahlele before magistrate S Matshaba in connection with the murder of the councillor's boyfriend, Manale Coloured Motebejane.
Motebejane, 49, was found dead at his home in Mamaolo village on August 16.
During their court appearance yesterday, the four men smiled to the gallery while magistrate Matshaba was addressing them.
The 40-year-old councillor Mphahlele is currently out on R10000 bail and her case was postponed to December 4.
Prosecutor Thabo Mathabatha also successfully applied for the postponement in order to allow Elelwani Mufamadi, a lawyer from the Legal Aid Board, time to consult her clients.
Mufamadi was representing Mmurwa, Maribe and Kgomo, while Mphahlele was represented by a private lawyer.
The councillor is represented by Joe Mphahlele.
Matshaba also indicated that he believed that by the time the councillor returned to court on December 4 they would have received a directive from the director for public prosecutions.
"The case against the councillor has been forwarded to the DPP for a decision and we hope when she appears again in court we shall have received a response," Matshaba said.
