By: Mbuso Kunene
The KwaMashu ward 41 African National Congress Youth League (ANCYL) have blamed South African Police Service (SAPS) for denying them entry into Ntuzuma Magistrate Court
Appearing in Court for bail application were brothers Anele (23) and Siphamandla (24) Nzama, who are charged with the murder of three children alleged burning them with petrol
Members of KwaMashu ANCYL chanted and sang songs outside the Court saying that suspects should not be granted bail.
Thulani Magwaza ANCYL secretary at KwaMashu ward 41 told Journalismiziko about their frustrations.
“ANCYL sent Court application to be part of this bail hearing, only to receive a bad service from civil servant “meaning police”, saying that we don’t have the right to be here,”
He added that as an organization they are not happy with the police work in the area saying, the incident occurred and was reported early last year and the suspects were arrested this
“We heard that suspects will re-appear in court on the 23rd of September,” said Magwaza.
Magwaza continued to say that the ANCYL came to emphasise that suspects should not be given bail as commuters might take law into their hands.
“They are not safe outside, they should remain in custody until their case is finalised,” added Magwaza.
One of the parent of the deceased told the press that she is a bomb waiting to explode on the 23rd September if the magistrate, Mlungisi Mchunu, would grant them a bail.
Two of the deceased were aged (19) and one was (20).
Despite having the ambition to know the accused, the other parent said she would not even identify them because she broke down to tears as the accused hit the dock.
The court was grambling, as Mchunu talks about a bail application.
ANCYL will prolong with it support till the end of the trial.
Both accused remained in custody.
