TWO men charged with the killing of Prince Thamsanqa Zondi and a police officer in Richmond were denied bail in the Richmond Magistrate’s Court court yesterday.

Thulani Conelius Doncabe (40) and Siboniso Lwazi Mpanza (19) appeared briefly under heavy police guard and the matter was adjourned until February 11. They are charged with two counts of murder and five counts of attempted murder.

The two are alleged to be part of an armed gang that tried to rob security guards loading money in an ATM in Richmond last Monday.

Prince Zondi was the son of local chief Inkosi Nsikayezwe Zondi.

Zondi’s younger brother, Prince Thubelihle Zondi, said they were saddened by what they saw in court.

“These suspects are so young and could have had a bright future.”
