Mur­der ac­cused case post­poned

The Star Early Edition - - NEWS -

THE CASE against mur­der ac­cused Syd­ney Moshapo will con­tinue in Jan­uary. Moshapo, who owns the Dol­lar Ta­ble bar in Melville, Joburg, was ar­rested last month for the bru­tal mur­der of 28-year-old Thu­lane Popoyi. He was granted bail at his first court ap­pear­ance due to lack of ev­i­dence, and the case was post­poned for fur­ther in­ves­ti­ga­tions. Popoyi was stabbed to death while out with his friends at the bar. He told them he was go­ing to the toi­let but never re­turned. Moshapo ap­peared in court on Tues­day but the case was stood down to Jan­uary 20 for fur­ther in­ves­ti­ga­tions. – Mpiletso Motumi
