Schoolboy murder accused out on bail
THE teenage boy who killed another pupil outside the school gate at Umphezeni High in eShowe three weeks ago, is out on bail.
The knife-wielding Thembinkosi Biyela (18) was granted R1000 bail during his recent appearance at Inkanyezi Magistrate’s Court in Mbongolwane.
Biyela was charged for the murder of Grade 12 pupil Lungelo Christopher Mfeka after he reportedly plunged a knife into his chest following an argument at 3:30pm outside the school premises.
The reason behind the quarrel is still unknown but police suspected it was related to community factions.
Biyela will be back in court on Wednesday, 25 April.
