The room was full of journalists from across the country and a crowd of mostly UFH students and staff gathered outside the court, singing songs, and holding placards to demand for justice.
Also present at court was MEC for Social Development Siphokazi Mani-Lusithi, who addressed the crowd after the postponement, as well as well-known Children's rights activist Petros Majola, from the Khula Community Development Project.
Pasile was arrested in August at his flat after Mtebeni’s dismembered body was found in a suitcase and black back on a Quigney pavement.
He faces a charge of murder.
There was a heavy police presence in the court precinct with controlled access to the courthouse.
