The case, which was set down over two days from Thursday, was postponed. This after his defence attorney M Khanyile asked for time to familiarise himself with the case.

The state has indicated its readiness to start the trial.
National Prosecuting Authority spokesperson Natasha Kara said the matter was adjourned until September in accordance with the request by the defence.
