Cops in court after man killed in custody
Johannesburg - Four policemen charged with the murder of a man in police detention appeared in the Athlone Magistrate's Court in Cape Town on Monday, the Independent Complaints Directorate said.
Constables Sibusiso Zwane, Simo Mazikwane, Liveni Mbuwako, and Siboniso Mbhele were based at the Samora Machel informal settlement, spokesperson Moses Dlamini said.
They allegedly beat Zamuxolo Zozo, 31, to death on January 8. He was taken into custody after his wife called the police over a domestic violence dispute.
The four policemen will appear in the same court for a bail application on February 3.
