The case of the Vlakfontein criminal accused of murder was adjourned in the Protea Magistrates Court until the end of January.
The postponement of the case of Fita Khupe was introduced after the death of his accomplice, Ernest Mabaso, who allegedly committed suicide in his cell in Cape Town. The incident occurred last week.
Cape Town police spokesperson Kay Makhubele noted that Khupe will appear in court:
“I understand the police have just arrived yesterday who were out with him for further investigation. Indeed, a case has been opened and the matter will be referred to Ipid for further investigation.”
The suspects, one of whom is dead now, have been charged with a murder of seven family members in Vlakfontein.
