THREE man accused of perpetrating a rock throwing incident that killed two people will reappear at the Verulam Magistrate’s Court on November 9. The suspects; Selvan Govender (46), his son Nathan Govender (27), and their employee Bhekithemba Gumbi (20); appeared in court on September 26. They were denied bail. The three men are accused of killing Amina Haffajee (16) and Abdul Rahim (7), siblings who died after a rock was thrown onto the car they were travelling in from the N2 bridge near Tongaat on December 29, 2017. According to the information given in court, the suspects threw a rock over the bridge onto the vehicle. The state said there were five witnesses that will be subpoenaed in court to testify. At their first appearance in court, defence attorney Rajendra Nathalal argued that his clients would plead not guilty “because they never met the state witnesses”. The investigating officer, Detective Ivan Padayachee of the Organised Crimes Unit, told court that the three were identified by the witnesses. Padayachee agreed that the state witnesses were among the minors that had been taken in by the police for questioning after they were allegedly found near the bridge where the incident occurred. The case was adjourned until November 9 and the suspects will be detained at Westville Prison until their next court appearance.
