ON Monday, the SAPS confirmed that two men between the ages of 20 and 30 years appeared in the Umzimkhulu Magistrate’s Court in connection with the murder of an elderly couple in Umzimkhulu.

SAPS spokesperson Lieutenant-Colonel Thulani Zwane said the suspects face two counts of murder and house robbery.

Cash was also taken from their house. The couple, Ndumiso Jali (72) and his wife Noma-India Jali (70), were attacked while sleeping in their home in Bhoda village in Umzimkhulu last month.

They were shot and killed.

Jali was a businessperson and a church leader in Umzimkhulu.

The case was postponed to late March for bail applications and the accused remain in police custody.
