Three people accused of murdering Ivy Molefe (50) have pleaded with Magistrate Thabo Lephadi of the Mmabatho Magistrate's Court not to grant them bail, says a Sowetan report.
Their lawyer said the three accused had their reasons for wanting to remain in custody. The three, and a fourth woman, are accused of kidnapping and murdering Molefe, whose body was found on a farm in North West two weeks ago. The accused are Molefe's husband Klaas Molefe (55), Penny Tatushe, Thabo Thamaga (24) and Elizabeth Mosweu. Lephadi told Mosweu to tell her new lawyer to be present at the next hearing on 23 August.
