MIHALIK MURDER CASE POSTPONED
THE three people who appeared in the Cape Town Magistrate’s Court yesterday on charges of the murder of top advocate Pete Mihalik were sent to different prisons in the Western Cape after their case was postponed.
Vuyile Maliti, who was arrested on Wednesday, joined Sizwe Sinzokohle Biyela (26) and Nkosinathi Khumalo (31), who have been charged with “premeditated” murder.
Maliti is understood to be a taxi boss in the Khayelitsha area. He was officially joined to the case after handing himself over to police on Wednesday.
A lawyer came down from Johannesburg to begin his defence.
The trio have also been charged with attempted murder, possession of an unlicensed firearm and possession of ammunition.
Mihalik was shot dead last Tuesday and his son was injured.
Anti-Gang Unit Security was tight at the court, monitoring movements. — News24.
