Two men accused of running an illegal initiation school in Windsorton, Northern Cape, appeared in the Barkly West Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday, police said.

Colonel Priscilla Naidu said Winston Moleleki, 38, was granted R500 bail, while Joseph Makhasane, 24, from Lesotho, was denied bail. The two were also charged with kidnapping two youths and forcing them to attend an initiation school.

The youths were hospitalised after botched circumcisions, Naidu said at the two’s first court appearance in July. They would appear in court again on September 30.
