Two men captured regarding the fierce killing in Sondela informal settlement in Rustenburg, North West, are expected to show up in the local court on Thursday for a bail application.
The last appearance of the two suspects, who were accused of hijacking and murder, was hung on camera at the Rustenburg Magistrate’s Court as they were a part of a line up in an identity march.
They were captured following a spate of killings in Sondela. A sum of 11 individuals has been executed between November 8 and November 26 in evident ethnic assaults.
According to locals, the conflict started in August when an isiXhosa speaking man allegedly stabbed a Sesotho speaking man in a fight over a woman.
The Sotho was hospitalised and a few days later, the Xhosa man who had stabbed him was confronted and beaten up by a group of Basotho men at a soccer match in Sondela.
Numerous incidents of brutal killings of people in the area have been reported since the police and community members have said.
