A­vuye ca­se la­wy­er wit­h­draws

George Herald - - News - Zo­la­ni Sinxo

The at­tor­ney who re­pre­sents the sus­pects who stand accu­sed of mur­de­ring A­vuye T­hyut­hu­za has wit­h­dra­wn from the ca­se.

Wit­son Jan­sen in­for­med the T­hem­ba­let­hu Re­gi­o­nal Court on F­ri­day 28 Sep­tem­ber that he had no op­ti­on but to wit­h­draw from the ca­se due to the al­le­ga­ti­on that he col­lu­ded with the pro­se­cu­tor of the bail court. He poin­ted out that he was not the at­tor­ney who did the bail ap­pli­ca­ti­on.

A­vuye T­hyut­hu­za (15), a Gra­de 9 le­ar­ner at PW Bo­tha Col­le­ge, was kil­led not far from his ho­me on Eas­ter Sun­day, 1 A­pril. It is al­le­ged that a group of boys, who call them­sel­ves Mi­la­nos, we­re re­spon­si­ble for his de­ath.

Fi­ve boys we­re ar­res­ted.

Ac­cor­ding to one of A­vuye's friends, who was with him on that fa­te­ful nig­ht and wit­nes­sed the in­ci­dent, A­vuye was mur­de­red be­cau­se the boys we­re je­a­lous of his clot­hes.

The ca­se was pos­t­po­ned to 23 Oc­to­ber to al­low the sus­pects to get a le­gal re­pre­sen­ta­ti­ve.

A­vuye's fa­mi­ly mem­bers are not ple­a­sed with the de­lays, saying the sus­pects are un­ne­ces­sa­ri­ly de­laying the court ca­se.

Last week Wed­nes­day, 26 Sep­tem­ber, a group of pe­op­le mar­ched to the T­hem­ba­let­hu Ma­gi­stra­te's Court to de­mand jus­ti­ce for three boys who we­re kil­led in on­going fig­hting be­t­ween main­ly high school yout­hs in T­hem­ba­let­hu.

The pa­rents of A­vuye, Lik­ha­nyi­so Man­ga­le (15) and Si­no­vu­yo Metsha (15), ac­com­pa­nied by re­la­ti­ves and mem­bers of the Un­ce­do Taxi As­so­ci­a­ti­on, are a­gainst bail for the al­le­ged c­hild kil­lers and want a speedy ar­rest of the ot­her sus­pects.
