ANC supporters protest against bail for suspect

2012-08-22 00:00

ANC members protested outside Ramsgate Court on Tuesday to make sure that Dumisani Sikhakhane (35) is refused bail.

Sikhakhane was arrested in connection with the murder of ANC member Wandile Mkhize and his friend Nhlakanipho Shabane in June this year. Skhakhane’s bail application could not proceed after his lawyer Sandile Dlomo failed to show up.

Dlomo instead sent a representative, Babalwa April, to tell the court that he would no longer be representing Sikhakhane.

April said Dlomo’s failure to show up was a matter of “conflict of interest” and could not elaborate further.

Magistrate, Elise Coetzer postponed the case to Tuesday, August 28.

Skhakhane was arrested on August 7 and made his first appearance at Ramsgate Court on August 10.
