2011-11-04 00:00

THE trial of brothers Jean-Pierre and Nicholas du Plooy, who are charged with having assaulted UKZN student Likwando Mbunwae at Crowded House nightclub on September 2, was postponed yesterday to enable the state to view CCTV footage of the alleged events.

The two accused, who are represented by attorney Anand Pillay, made a brief appearance in the magistrate’s court yesterday and the case was postponed to November 10.

The brothers are charged with assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm and crimen injuria for allegedly calling Mbunwae a k****r. According to earlier reports they also allegedly referred to Mbunwae’s white friend as a “monkey lover”.

They have not yet pleaded to the charges.

The accused are on R500 bail each.
