The case was postponed to May 04, 2021 for further investigation.

She says the bail conditions imposed on the suspects include; “Not to interfere with state witnesses or the investigation. Not to enter the premises of Matjhabeng Local Municipality. All remand dates to be attended. Passports to be handed over to the investigation team before 16:00 today (Tuesday).
