Cash heist: Ill suspect delays trial

2011-08-16 00:00

THE trial of six men charged with involvement in a R692 000 cash heist on the N11 near Ladysmith in which three people were killed in 2009 was delayed until tomorrow because one of them is ill.

Last week the trial was delayed more than once due to illness of another accused.

Last week a police officer, Warrant Officer Thokozani Ngcobo (43), who was expected to have given evidence in the trial as a “204” (accomplice) witness for the prosecution, was shot dead.

Jerody Mthimunye, Philemon Nhleko, Ewat Ndubuko, Zikethela Sokhela, Mandla Maloi and a former Ladysmith police officer, Siyabonga Nkwanyana, have pleaded not guilty.
