Three men accused of attacking members of the Operation Dudula movement in Jane Furse, Limpopo, last year, killing one, will appear in Nebo magistrate’s court on Monday.
On Wednesday and Thursday, Doctor Ramaube, 22, and Oupa Jacob Shai, 37, appeared in court separately on murder allegations. In June, their co-accused Nteke Mohlaba, 30, appeared in court for murder, robbery, and ammunition possession.
When the three return to court, Shai and Ramaube are anticipated to apply for bail.
In October of last year, the accused were among a gang of suspects who allegedly attacked a bus carrying members of the Operation Dudula movement.
The bus was damaged, and one person was fatally shot, according to Limpopo police spokeswoman Col Malesela Ledwaba.
“The victims were visiting Jane Furse RDP sports ground from Gauteng to launch their movement and hand over their memorandum to the local police when their bus was allegedly attacked with stones by a group of unknown people,” he said.
The bus stopped, and some people got off and ran after the attackers, he said. One of the passengers was shot and killed instantly by the attackers.
“The suspects were arrested on different occasions while the others are still at large. Anyone with information that can lead to the arrest of the remaining suspects can contact the investigating officer Constable Tebogo Mulaudzi of the provincial murder and robbery unit on 066 386 2978 or crime stop number 08600 10111 or the nearest police station or MySAPSApp,” he said.
