The trial of former North West deputy police commissioner, General Mzondase Mpembe, and five police officers will continue in the North West High Court on Monday.
The six are facing five counts of murder, attempted murder, defeating the ends of justice and contravening the Commissions Act by giving false information to the Marikana Commission of Inquiry.
According to National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) spokesperson Henry Mamothame, the trial is related to five murders in Marikana during the wage strike by Lonmin mine workers on 13 August 2012. The five include two police officers and three civilians.
Three witnesses have given testimony – a police crime scene expert, a CCTV operator from Lonmin Mines and a police videographer.
The defence team will cross-examine the videographer on Monday.
