“We want to ensure that the suspects are not granted bail. We support the residents and the deceased’s family, we say the court must not grant them bail because they brutally killed a young innocent woman on women’s month. We will follow court proceedings until the end of the matter,” says Cllr Isaac Mokoena

It is believed residents were planning to take the law into their own hands in case the court grants them bail.
