Polokwane – The murder case against a Limpopo businessman has been postponed until Monday for a formal bail application, police said.

Kabelo Kider Mamphoke, 52, from Kgautswana village, appeared in the Lebowakgomo Magistrate's Court on Tuesday, on a charge of killing Albert Dalom Mashego, 44, over a long-standing feud about their soccer teams, Lieutenant Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe said.  

Both men owned local soccer teams and were allegedly involved in a dispute about players.

Mamphoke, from Kgautswane, allegedly shot Mashego several times on Monday night. He allegedly fled the scene in his car, which was later found abandoned along the R37 outside Burgersfort. He handed himself to police later.

Mashego was taken to a local clinic and declared dead on arrival.
