Johannesburg - A man accused of murdering Happy Sindane appeared in the KwaMhlanga Magistrate's Court on Friday, Mpumalanga police said.

Police spokesperson Leonard Hlathi said the case against Khuano Simon Mthimunye, 58, was postponed to 21 June.

His R10 000 bail was extended.

Sindane's body was found in Tweefontein, near KwaMhlanga, on 1 April.

The 29-year-old made headlines in 2003 when he claimed he was a white boy, who had been kidnapped by black people.

After a four-month inquiry to establish his identity, the Bronkhorstspruit Children's Court found in September 2003 that Sindane's real name was Abbey Mzayiya, and that he was the son of a black domestic worker, Rina Mzayiya.

The court found that his father was probably a white man, Henry Nick, who employed Mzayiya in 1984, the year Sindane was born.
