Mpisi will be back in court on September 22.

Rabalo’s uncle, Klaas Rabalao expressed mixed feelings over the bail abandonment.

“I do not understand court processes and I don’t know how to feel. As a family, all we want is for whoever killed our child to be sentenced to jail,” he said.

Klaas expressed his family’s anguish at having to bury his niece’s charred remains.

“It is the first time this has happened in our family. We have never seen something like that; we had to bury her remains. We have not healed, we are still in shock and far from healing. It is very hard,” he said.
