The court also heard on Monday that one of the minor accused has passed away.

Spokesperson for the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) in Limpopo Mashudu Malabi-Dzhangi says the trial will take place behind closed doors due the involvement of minors.

“Due to the involvement of minors.. the trail is to be held in-camera. The matter was postponed to the 6th of July 2020 because the legal representative of accused number 6 and 7 requested the state to finish with certain information.”
