Johannesburg - A man accused of trying to murder an alleged poacher will appear in the Malelane Magistrate's Court on Monday, Mpumalanga police said.

Richard Hume, 31, the son of rhino and buffalo breeder John Hume, was out on R5 000 bail, police spokesperson Gerald Sedibe said on Wednesday.

In September, Sabelo Maphungla was driving a bakkie in the Mauricedale game reserve with Siso Nkhosi, 28, and Jabo Dlamini, 38.

Hume allegedly shot Maphungla, wounding him in the head.

Nkhosi and Dlamini were charged with trespassing and illegal game hunting, but the matter was provisionally struck from the court roll in December, pending Maphungla's recovery.

Sedibe said this case had not yet been reinstated, because Maphungla remained in hospital.
