Two more in court for boys’ killing

The Times (South Africa) - - News - By JEFF WICKS

● The cold-blooded mur­der of two Dur­ban school­boys‚ al­legedly slain in a dra­matic act of vengeance by a spurned lover‚ has drawn two of the scorned woman’s co-con­spir­a­tors into the dock.

Liziwe Ng­way­ishe and Ali Yusuf ap­peared briefly in the Dur­ban Mag­is­trate’s Court on Tues­day, ac­cused of aid­ing Bongiwe Maliwa in the mur­ders of Njab­ulo Mankayi and Luyanda Msomi last week.

Maliwa had ap­par­ently been en­gaged in a sor­did af­fair with Mankayi’s fa­ther and is al­leged to have kid­napped the pair in re­tal­i­a­tion for his end­ing their dalliance.

Ng­way­ishe and Yusuf were re­manded in cus­tody and are ex­pected to ap­pear along­side Maliwa on Mon­day, when their cases are to be joined.

Their al­leged role in the mur­der of the boys‚ who dis­ap­peared on Thurs­day last week‚ has not yet been re­vealed.

On Mon­day, po­lice divers fished Mankayi’s body from a murky canal near Dur­ban’s Bluff. He and Msomi‚ considered in­sep­a­ra­ble friends‚ were last seen board­ing a bus on their way home to Clair­wood on Thurs­day last week.

Msomi’s bat­tered body was later dis­cov­ered on Satur­day in the south Dur­ban basin.

The trio will face two charges each of mur­der‚ kid­nap­ping and as­sault with in­tent to cause griev­ous bod­ily harm.
