Reporting from Pietermaritzburg
A man accused of murdering a child (12) from Sweetwaters, who allegedly was possessed by demons, was returned to jail so that the investigation can continue. Mzokhona Sibisi (32), who appeared in the Magistrate’s Court in Pietermaritzburg yesterday on the charge of murdering Ayanda Sibiya, who was found with her eyes and other parts of her body removed, and with her hands and feet bound. Sibisi asked to have his own paid lawyer but he said that he had not yet spoken with him. The magistrate advised him to sit down while he was still talking to him and that he should find a lawyer as quickly as possible.The state said that it will oppose the application for bail, if Sibiya lodges one, because his case is very serious and there is much still to be gathered in terms of evidence relating to this case. Sibisi was dressed in his blue jacket and dungarees, not looking particularly concerned, since he was shooting the breeze and chatting with another accused sitting near him.
His case has been postponed to July the 16th, on which day he will have a chance to lodge an application for bail.
