A street vendor accused of killing a metro policeman is expected to appear in the Benoni Magistrate’s Court today.
The man’s second court appearance was on Wednesday when he was supposed to make a bail application.
A 48-year-old metro policeman was killed in Daveyton on Sunday.
At the time, Ekurhuleni metro police spokesman Chief Superintendent Wilfred Kgasago said the officer had been enforcing by-laws when he was punched.
A businessman had allegedly been operating a food stall in an unauthorised area.
Officers were towing his caravan away when the officer was hit. He fell and hit his head, and died on the scene.
