Ex-mayor's murder case postponed
Mahikeng - The pre-trial of former Rustenburg mayor Matthew Wolmarans on charges of murder was postponed by the North West High Court in Mafikeng on Wednesday, police said.
The matter was set down for February 20, said North West police spokesperson Captain Amanda Funani.
Wolmarans and three others stand accused of murdering former councillor Moss Phakoe.
Wolmarans was released on R50 000 bail by the local magistrate's court in November. His co-accused Amos Mataboge and Oupa Mphomane were granted bail on October 20. A fourth accused, Enoch Matshaba, was a driver for Wolmarans.
Phakoe was killed in the driveway of his home in Rustenburg north on March 13, 2009, after putting up ANC posters for the national election.
He was found slumped over the steering wheel of his car and had two bullet wounds. The driver's side window of the car was shattered.
He was murdered after handing in a report about corruption in the Rustenburg municipality.
