The boyfriend of murdered Khayelitsha woman Aviwe Jam Jam will spend at least another four weeks in prison until his next court appearance.

Linda Ntula appeared in the Khayelitsha Magistrate’s Court on Friday on charges of attempted murder after he allegedly attacked Jam Jam’s stepfather, and malicious damage to property.

Ntula and Jam Jam have a two-year-old son. She was living with him at the time of her disappearance. Her battered body was found near Vygieskraal Stadium, Athlone, on 29 July . Police informed her family ten days later, on the eve of Women’s Day.

Police spokesperson FC van Wyk said no arrests had been made in Jam Jam’s murder case and investigations continue.

On Friday, Ntula made a brief appearance dressed in a plain white t-shirt and denim jeans. He appeared very calm as he stood in the dock. Members of the ANC Women’s League were among those in the gallery.

The case was postponed until September 8, for further investigations.

It is alleged Ntula and a group of friends attacked Jam Jam’s stepfather while he was entering the driveway of his Site C home.

Her stepfather escaped the attack, but was rushed to the hospital where he was received 12 stitches in his head.

Jam Jam’s stepfather, who declined to be named, said a week after the attack Ntula and a friend came back to his home and fired shots outside. The bullets chipped the wall in two places.
