📍CELEBRITY MURDER: @dmasilela murder trial postponed as one accused not in court📍
The trial of five men accused of shooting and killing Rhythm City actor Dumi Masilela is expected to commence on Tuesday after one of the suspects was not present in court. Bongani John Masombuka, Sfundo Harrison Nkosi, Khumbuzo Solomon Mukhuba, Brian Makhubedu and Mashudu Malema face charges of murder, hijacking, attempted hijacking and possession of an unlicensed firearm.
Judge Papi Mosopa rolled the matter over to Tuesday as Makhubedi was not present in court on Monday. Masilela was shot during an attempted hijacking in Tembisa South and died in hospital on August 3 2018. Gauteng police said Masilela and a friend sped off after they were approached by attackers in a Jeep on August 2. The men responded by firing shots at them.
Police were able to establish that a total of six suspects were behind the murder. The initial five were arrested last year. One of them, the owner of the Jeep, was released after it was established that he was also the victim of a hijacking. The fifth suspect was arrested later and the sixth died in a robbery.
📍LAW: Cape Town spent R19m to resolve 37 of its 767 legal matters📍
There are around 767 “legal matters” involving the City, of which 37 cases were concluded in the Western Cape High court, costing the City around R19 million. These legal matters were instituted between January 1, 2016, and September 23 this year. City spokesperson Luthando Tyhalibongo said: “On some matters we are still awaiting advice and instructions on how best to proceed.
“This is why I am referring to legal ‘matters’ as opposed to ‘court cases’. “Also, in some matters the City is the respondent, in others we are the applicant, and in some we are cited as a third or fourth party given that the City represents the third sphere of government and needs to be cited as a party in terms of prevailing legislation or court processes.” Tyhalibongo said it was vital that the public understood that the City had no control over how long it took for a legal matter to be concluded. Of the 37 cases, six have been withdrawn, six have resulted in judgment granted against the City, 10 have resulted in judgment in favour of the City and 15 have been settled.
The most recent highly-publicised case is one involving the municipality and a group of homeless people over the issuing of fines.
Seven homeless people filed a contempt of court application against the City, after law enforcement and Cape Town Central City Improvement District officials continued to issue fines to the seven applicants and remove their possessions, despite agreeing to cease doing so pending a hearing in December. Social Justice Coalition (SJC) secretary general Axolile Notywala: “I think this is mainly because people are disgruntled towards the City and people are seeking justice from the courts because of this unhappiness.” #bolt#SkinGuardChallenge#KeaTurns19#whatsappstockvel#drtumi#Bombsquad#minnie#MmusiMaimane#Karabo#CongratulationsTacha#thami#mourinho#nolo#TachaOurWinner#TylerPerry#WorldHabitatDay#DuduzaneZuma#Maimane
📍DRUGS: South African man arrested with drugs worth 4 million Rands in Zambali Home📍
The Hawks on Friday arrested a 37-year-old man after heroin worth an estimated R4m was found in an upmarket townhouse in the plush Zimbali area, north of Durban. The man was apprehended after officials received a tip-off. “The arrest came after the Hawks received a tip-off about drugs from overseas that were allegedly being kept at and distributed from an unoccupied upmarket townhouse in Zimbali. “The suspect was renting another townhouse not from away the alleged stash house while using the other apartment as a storage facility,” said Hawks spokesperson Capt Simphiwe Mhlongo.
The man was spotted entering the rented premises. Police, armed with a search warrant, then confronted the suspect. Mhlongo said the man put up a fight, but was ultimately detained.
Following the tip-off, a search was conducted. “During the search of the house, the team seized 16kg of heroin powder, cash, other paraphernalia and machinery totalling at least R4m,” said Mhlongo. Officials also searched other houses belonging to the man in Umhlanga and Mount Edgecombe, but found no drugs. The man was expected to appear at the Umhlali Magistrate's Court on Monday for dealing in and possession of drugs.
