Bus attack accused teens in court

2014-04-15 00:00

TWO 19-year-olds, Sanele Dlamini and Sibusiso Shelembe, and a 17-year-old youth appeared briefly in two courts at the magistrate’s court yesterday in connection with attempted murder charges following an attack on a school bus near Cedara last Friday.

A fourth suspect, Lindokuhle Mtshali (19), was reportedly in hospital and was remanded in absentia.

The case was postponed until tomorrow so that all the accused can appear in court together. None of the accused has been asked to plead.

The state is opposed to their release on bail at this stage.

The accused were arrested following an incident where pupils were attacked and at least four were reportedly stabbed and seriously injured on a bus outside Sibongumbovo School at Cedara.
