To thwart potential tension during the bail application on Friday following recent heinous murder of two innocent White City, Soweto young boys, Tshiamo Rabanye 7, and Mduduzi Nqobizitha Zulu 5, Public Order Policing were dispatched to the Protea Magistrate’s Court.
The two suspects, Ngcobile Ndlovu 50, and her boyfriend Mthunzi Zulu 39, are accused of committing gruesome crime believed to linked muti killings.
Ndlovu, who is Tshiamo’s grandmother and cousin to Nqobizitha’s mother, a 37-year-old Nomthandazo Zulu, has been charged with a heinous offense that has rocked the community, .
On Friday, a court heard that Ndlovu had been denied her request to hire her own lawyer.
The court, ruled that Ndlovu should be represented by the state-appointed lawyer instead.
Magistrate David Mhango postponed the duo’s bail application until May 12, pending legal aid representation for both accused parties.
Ndlovu and Zulu were remanded into custody, much to the chagrin of the gathered community members.
Emotions were running high outside the courthouse, with outraged people screaming for Ndlovu’s blood.
The mother of the murdered Nqobizitha, Nomthandazo, was overcome with grief and anger, her voice shaking with emotion as she spoke to reporters.
She claimed that Ndlovu had shown no remorse for her heinous crime and even smiled in the dock.
Nomthandazo could not bear the thought of her child’s final moments, wondering what he had said as he stared death in the face.
“I wish this court would throw her into my hands,” she declared. I’m not afraid to be sent to jail. I will kill her myself.”
Her intensity was palpable. It was clear that the tragedy of Nqobizitha’s death had left a permanent scar on her family and the community at large
