The family of the late Collins Chabane Mayor, Moses Maluleke, has expressed growing unease over recent developments in the ongoing trial.
In a revelation during the Polokwane High Court proceedings, it was disclosed that two more suspects are still at large and yet to be apprehended in connection with the case.
SAPS member Warrant Officer Phaladi Makola, part of the Limpopo tracking team, revealed in court on Wednesday that efforts to locate suspects Fanas Sinko and an unidentified individual who served as the driver of a bakkie used in the crime are ongoing.
These findings have led to a delay in the trial proceedings, which are now scheduled to resume on September 14th.
Accused 1, Shumani Nemadodzi, has further complicated matters by withdrawing his legal representative, citing a conflict of interest.
This unforeseen development has added to the frustration of the late mayor’s family.
Moses Maluleke’s brother, Eiteken Maluleke, expressed disappointment over the continued delays and voiced concerns that the case may extend even further before reaching a conclusion.
The family’s hopes for justice remain high, but the uncertainty surrounding these recent revelations has cast a shadow over their pursuit of closure.
