Cape Town - Two of the men convicted of kidnapping, hijacking and robbing actor Brett Goldin and his fashion designer friend Richard Bloom in 2006 have been denied parole, but will have another chance at being granted parole in December.

According to Eyewitness News, the parole board on Wednesday postponed the parole hearing of Jade Wyngaard and Nurshad Davids until later in the year.

This is the third time the pair have been denied parole.

They are serving effective 15-year sentences after being found guilty of hijacking and robbing the pair as they left a party in Camps Bay. Their accomplices, Shavaan Marlie and Clinton Davids, were found guilty of killing Goldin and Bloom and sentenced to 28 years in prison.

Goldin's mother Denise told EWN that the parole process is stressful and frustrating for her.

"Every time the parole situation comes up it affects all of our lives so badly. It's a bit of a disappointment that there isn't a final decision but if the parole board sees fit to do this we just have to accept and go along with it."

- An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that Wyngaard and Nurshad were convicted of the murders of Goldin and Bloom. News24 apologises for this error.
