Booysen accused bail hearing

The two men who were arrested for the rape and murder of Anene Booysen are expected to appear in court. See all the pictures from Bredasdorp.

Cape Town - Two men who allegedly killed and raped teenager Anene Booysen appeared for their bail application in the Bredasdorp Magistrate's Court on Tuesday morning.

Jonathan Davids, 22, and Johannes Kana, 21, both casually dressed, kept their heads down as they were led in, but did not cover their faces.

The court set aside an earlier State order prohibiting photos or video footage of their faces.

Prosecutor Maria Marshall said only Davids would be applying for bail. Kana would apply for bail at a later stage.

Booysen, 17 was gang-raped and disembowelled after visiting a club on Friday, February 1.

She was found at the Asla Magwebu construction site, where she worked, not far from her RDP home, the next morning. She managed to identify one of her killers before she died in hospital that night.

Davids took to the stand to testify.
