Lucky Dube murder case postponed

CAPTION: Lucky Dube's teenage daughters read a message before mourners

The four men accused of killing reggae star Lucky Dube appeared briefly in a Johannesburg magistrate’s court on Tuesday, Oct 30.
They appeared before Magistrate Pieter du Plessis, who postponed the case to November 30 for further investigation.
Media reports from South Africa indicate that Mozambicans Sifiso Mahlangu and Julius Gxowa, and South Africans Thabo Maropeng and Mabuti Mabe are the suspects facing charges of murder, attempted hijacking and the possession of two unlicensed firearms and stolen property.
The four are yet to bring formal bail applications after the state opposed bail during their first appearance last week. They remain in custody in the Johannesburg Central police station cells.
Hope things end properly…
