Mohlala murder case postponed

Johannesburg – The bail application of the fifth suspect in the murder of the Mbombela local municipality speaker Jimmy Mohlala has been postponed, Mpumalanga police said on Wednesday.

"Kabokweni Magistrate's Court postponed the case to November 5 because the suspect did not bring an attorney," Captain Leonard Hlathi said.

The man in his thirties first appeared in court on October 7 after he was arrested in his hiding place in Matsulu on October 4, Hlathi said.

He is the alleged trigger-puller in Mohlala's murder.

His arrest follows that of four other people who were arrested on October 2 in connection with the murder. They appeared in the same court on October 4 and were granted R10 000 bail each.

Their bail would be extended until all five appeared again.

Mohlala was shot dead outside his home in January last year, following his exposure of irregularities in tenders issued for the construction of the R1bn Mbombela Stadium for the World Cup.
