No interpreter, no formal bail application, says Magistrate

The absence of the Maluti Magistrate Court interpreter has added another delay in the formal bail application of the triple murder accused, Thabo Makhetle, on Thursday.

On Monday, the absence of water was the initial reason for today’s postponement. Makhetle is accusing of gunning down three family members at Queens Mercy a week ago.

The three brothers according to Eastern Cape Police spokesperson, Thembinkosi Kwinana, were travelling in their car, when the suspect approached and shot them,two died on the spot,  while one died on his way to a local hospital. According to a police statement, the shooting was in retaliation to stock theft. The court has since adjourned the meeting to May,31.
