The suspect was in court for a while on Wednesday; however, the trial was delayed for Friday in order to let the court get a Swahili translator for the suspect. The beginning of the trial was postponed as problems came about with the suspect’s representation.

Nelson Kwhinana, Sibusiso Kwhinana’s father, stated that they acknowledged the delay; however, they wanted the trial to happen as soon as possible. He told the media that they would not accept anything that’s below a life Sentence.

Sibusiso Kwhinana’s father says, “Tebatso is not coping well since they were together when it happened and he carried him till the paramedics arrived. His takkies were soaked in Sibusiso’s blood. I have been trying to console him.” Sibusiso Kwhinana was declared dead on the scene where he was stabbed.
