Johann Botha case postponed
THE case of the three people accused of killing Carte Blanche producer Johann Botha and a friend has been postponed for further investigation in the Johannesburg Magistrate’s Court.
State prosecutor Colleen Ryan said that they were still awaiting cellphone records and post-mortem photographs. Botha and his friend Swazi Werner were murdered at the Zebra Inn Restaurant in Troyeville on June 7.
Thembi Mbatha, 19, Nkosiyazi Phungula, 27, and Ntobeko Hlatshwayo, 32, face charges of murder, armed robbery and possession of an unlicensed firearm and ammunition. Magistrate Lucas van der Schyff postponed the matter to September 12 for police to finalise their probe. – ANA
