Six men appeared in the Greytown magistrate’s court again on Friday in connection with an incident in which the principal of Somashi High School principal Mzweleni Zuma (46) was killed at the school on October 23.
The school is in the KwaDolo area.
The case was postponed to November 24 while police check addresses of the accused.
The accused — Khumbulani Zondi (37), Bheki Zondi (35), Mzomuhle Zondi (34), Mvelo Zondi (32), Sandile Ncube (28) and Xolani Sithole(27) are currently charged only with possession of unlicensed firearms and carjacking. They have not been charged with murder pending ballistic results that are outstanding.
On Friday and at the previous court hearing members of the Zuma family were not allowed into court due to Covid-19 protocols. They gathered outside the court singing in protest.
The situation was calm yesterday but previously some of the crowd, some of whom are supporters of the accused and others of the principal — hurled insults at one another.
