A KwaZulu-Natal man accused of murdering his ex-girlfriend at the Mangosuthu University of Technology has again been remanded in custody until his next court appearance next month.
Thabani Mzolo is accused of murdering Zolile Khumalo at her residence after he signed in using someone else’s name.
Khumalo was laid to rest at the weekend.
Deputy Police Minister Bongani Mkongi is expected to visit the university and the security company to assess the level of safety at the institution’s residences.
As magistrate Mohammad Motala was leaving the courtroom, Mzolo also tried to walk out of the dock and pulled a zap sign at journalists and members of the gallery, angering many, including Khumalo’s family.
Motala reprimanded Mzolo for his behaviour.
The 23-year-old will remain in police custody until 19 June while the State tries to establish where he lives.
