Johannesburg - Four men accused of killing the NUM's Marikana chairperson appeared in the Tlhabane Magistrate's Court in Rustenburg on Thursday, North West police said.

"It was a brief appearance as the matter was not finalised," police spokesperson Thulani Ngubane said.

Eric Ngwenya, Sonwabo Bhani, Mseleki Dalaza and Thabisile Gasa would remain in custody until their next appearance on Friday.

The National Union of Mineworkers' (NUM) office-bearer was shot several times in the Nkaneng informal settlement on 22 October.

Ngubane said William Setelele, 46, was driving when four men emerged from bushes and shot at his car.

He was hit once while he was driving and seven times once he had stopped and got out of the car. He died on the scene.
