Cape Town - The trial of a youth accused of killing a Cape Town metro policeman was postponed by the Khayelitsha Magistrate's Court on Monday, the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) said.

Western Cape NPA spokesperson Eric Ntabazalila said Sandisile Ncapayni, 18, would remain in custody until his next appearance on 22 October.

"An identity parade will be held within the next seven days for bail information... a Legal Aid lawyer has come on record to represent him."

Senior Superintendent Mpumelelo Hubert Xakekile, 50, was issuing a fine to a taxi driver in Khayelitsha on Wednesday evening when he was shot dead.

Ncapayi was arrested on Friday. An alleged accomplice was still on the run.

According to the NPA, Ncapayi was seen running from the scene with a firearm in his hand and allegedly admitted to a witness he had shot and robbed a police officer.

In court on Monday, it was revealed that the youth was apparently unemployed and had only a primary school education.

    \It was revealed he is unemployed with primary education\, so goes the last paragraph of this article. Who is surprised? He should've been busy studying for-the-end-of the year Matric exams, yet he chose to be a butcher of people, brain-dead moron. One family has now lost a bread-winner. One woman has lost a husband, kids have lost a father thanks to a good-for-nothing scumbag. Why is it called primary education? Is called education? Can somebody clarify this for me. I'm waiting, and the suspence is killing me, please!
