Cape Town - The case of one of Anene Booysen's alleged killers was postponed in the Bredasdorp Magistrate's Court on Monday.

Magistrate Graham Cupido told Johannes Kana, 21, that he would appear alongside alleged accomplice Jonathan Davids, 22, on Tuesday.

Both remained in police custody.

Booysen was found disembowelled at a construction site on Saturday 2 February and later died from her injuries. She was buried in the rural town, about 180km from Cape Town, at the weekend.

Kana, a thin man with tattoos on both arms, was arrested last week.

A third man was arrested, but was later released after further investigation.

Hid face

Kana attracted fierce attention at his first appearance on Monday morning and hid his face with a towel.

Members of the media and public squashed tightly into the court benches to listen to the proceedings.

A group of people outside the court room peered in through a dirty window.

The magistrate asked whether he would like to apply for legal aid or use his own lawyer.

Kana softly replied that he would use the State's lawyer.

His mother jumped up from the court bench and screamed "eie prokureur" (own attorney).

When Kana was asked if he would be applying for bail, his mother again sprung up and shouted "Se ja, man" (Say yes, man).

Booysen's family winced when hearing a sharp knife was used in the crimes.

They left the court swiftly when the case was adjourned, braving the heavy rain outside.

The court ruled earlier on Monday that the media were allowed access to the case because of public interest.

The media were prohibited, however, from showing Kana's face in print or on television.

Prosecutor Maria Marshall told the court she did not want the face of the accused to be shown as the case was still in the early stages of investigation and could be jeopardised because they were gathering statements.
