Ex-Bulls player in court for axe murders

2011-09-27 11:11

Durban - The murder case against former Blue Bulls flanker Phindile Joseph Ntshongwana was postponed by the Durban Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.

Ntshongwana, accused of axing three people to death in Lamontville earlier this year, briefly appeared in court on Tuesday.

The case was postponed to October 27 to allow the parties to study medical reports compiled by two doctors who assessed Ntshongwana, and so the matter could be referred to the high court.

Ntshongwana was sent for mental assessment after his father Liston told the court his son had psychiatric problems.

In June, a decision was taken to admit him to the Fort Napier Hospital in Pietermaritzburg, where a state psychologist and a private psychiatrist examined him.

The doctors concluded he was fit to stand trial.

    Is it something the Bulls players are taking?

      JMan - 2011-09-27 12:30

      Don't know...but you should definately consider taking something...

      Zip23 - 2011-09-27 12:36

      He played for many franchises, disengeneous by press to label him a bulls player. Wasnt a very good player either.

      Enigma - 2011-09-27 12:37

      @JMan...wait I think Red Bull will do the trick myancmufuture since his brain seems to be dof like his joke..ha ha ha LOL

      Zip23 - 2011-09-27 12:38

      @myancmyfutur, dont know what the bulls players are taking, but we all know that the Metro Cops are on the take my friend. take all your cash.

      Marx - 2011-09-27 12:42

      They have to add the word Blue Bulls to this article or nobody will read this crap! Does anybody even know this guy??

      John - 2011-09-27 13:04

      @ myanc...., this guy was oppressed by the old regime and didnt know any better(that is the excuse anyway),bees on the other hand was being harrassed by an oppressed guy that thought being a traffic cop gives him the right in the new disspensation to bribe and harrass any of the old oppressors and the rest is history

      myancmyfutur - 2011-09-27 14:25

      John Lol

      Madoqua - 2011-09-27 14:37

      Now if I remember the story correctly when it first hit the news, this guy has a history of serious mental/psychological problems. His actions have nothing to do with his race or former rugby team.

    Notice how there is no outcry over this blue bull. Can't possibly be because he is black! Never

      Doublepost - 2011-09-27 11:30

      Yep, it was Apartheid's fault after all. They made him like this.

      Currie_Mafia - 2011-09-27 11:43

      It should be fine though, because his victims were black as well ?

      myancmyfutur - 2011-09-27 12:03

      Murder is murder but I think all these players must be tested for the substance. I pray for a life sentence just as I prayed in for the same in Bees case. We can't have people like these on our streets whether black or white

      THE-SRG - 2011-09-27 12:30

      @myanc...or Winnies and taxi drivers

      Krush - 2011-09-27 12:55

      This guy suffers from schizophrenia. Yes, mental disorders do exist! This is not the 16th century anymore.

  • Melinda - 2011-09-27 11:55

    now what will moron say about this???

      rexie28 - 2011-09-27 12:02

      he's probably still working out a few lines to start his little fire again.

      Ron-ny - 2011-09-27 12:03

      I think he followed my advise and Googled the meaning of the word "moron", and only then realized that he was insulting himself. Expect him to come back with an equally idiotic name like "myancmyfuture" or "ancnumberone" etc.

      Bardy - 2011-09-27 12:11

      He will blame it on apartheid probably. It's always the white mans fault.

      myancmyfutur - 2011-09-27 12:21

      Ron ny, I like your sense of humour

      Ron-ny - 2011-09-27 12:40

      @ myancmyfutur...and I tip my hat to you ;)

      shellerjc - 2011-09-27 12:41

      lol. Now that you mention it - I have not seen any comments from him of late - Could it be that news24 has banned him? We can only hope.

      Bardy - 2011-09-27 12:53

      I doubt it @ shellerjc. He stirs up to much trouble and causes a lot of people to comment, so I think News24 will keep him around just for the joke of it! LOL!

      BloodRiver - 2011-09-27 14:01

      He's busy weeding my garden. Then he has to wash the car and mow the lawn before I will let him play with the "computah" again.

      Bardy - 2011-09-27 14:46

      @ BloodRiver. Thank you! My entire office thinks I am crazy now because I just laughed out very loud to your comment! You made my day dude!

  • Gazza69 - 2011-09-27 11:55

    Hahaha these Bulls players. Never behave when they get the axe.......

      IC1 - 2011-09-27 12:48

      Yea he had an axe to grind

  • Johan - 2011-09-27 12:09

    Last time he played for the Bulls was in 2000. He then went on to play for the Eagles, but "Former Bulls Player" sounds much more sensational than "Former Eagles Player".

      anon - 2011-09-27 12:31

      Yes, it does Johan. Remind me again who Bees played for last? Or the MILF hunter? You've got to admit, its pretty funny.

  • Darwinian - 2011-09-27 12:33

    So if the family wants you dead, you go to jail and if the family wants money you go home, wow epic justice system.....

  • Brannas - 2011-09-27 12:40

    The Bulls should choose this guy and Bees Roux in their team when they play against those useless Stormers, They will sort them out once and for all.

      Sparkys - 2011-09-27 13:53

      Seems like their supporters are just as nuts.Many screws lose!!

  • IC1 - 2011-09-27 12:49

    This guy had a beef with people

  • freefromu - 2011-09-27 13:09

    @zip23 i played with him in high school, he was a good player,condolences to the families

  • Ingie - 2011-09-27 13:40

    Hopefuly the 2 doctors compiling the case are qualified!!!

      myancmyfutur - 2011-09-27 16:27

      I hope Dr Basson is not one of them
