Johannesburg - An in-loco inspection of a pub in Bredasdorp, Western Cape, was conducted on Wednesday as part of the rape and murder trial of Johannes Kana, the SABC reported.

The pub was the last place 17-year-old Anene Booysen was seen before she was raped and disembowelled in February. She died in the Tygerberg Hospital on the afternoon of Saturday, 2 February.

Kana's trial began in the Swellendam Circuit Court on Monday.

According to the broadcaster, witness Chrisna Mentoor pointed out areas outside the pub where Kana and Booysen were seen before leaving together.

There was reportedly a strong police presence as the court contingent, which included Kana, his lawyer, Judge Patricia Goliath, and the prosecution, made its way around the scene.

The Star reported that the State rejected Kana's plea on Monday, in which he had admitted leaving the pub with Booysen, hitting her and raping her, but denied killing her.
