This is after accused one, and two decided to appoint a new legal representative.

The two have now brought in advocate Sipho Ramosepele in place of attorney TT Thobane. Ramosepele asked for time to familiarise himself with the case.

He was only given instruction last week Thursday. The court was meant to hear evidence of a new state witness on Monday.

“Accused number one and two have terminated the legal services of advocate Thobane. There are no reasons that have been advanced,” Judge Tshifhiwa Maumela said.

“But the fact of the matter is that Mr Ramosepele is around today to represent accused number one and two.

“Now because this case had already started proceedings. Mr Ramosepele certainly needs time to familiarise himself with all that has transpired from the beginning of the trial.

Judge Maumela added: “For that reason, we can not proceed as we had intended to proceed today.

“Mr Ramosepele will have to be provided with a transcript of all proceeds from the beginning. He will also need time to look into the docket and familiarise himself with the transcript of all proceedings from the beginning.

“For that reason, as I indicated, we are not going to proceed. This case was to proceed until the end of next week; that will no longer happen because Mr Ramosepele is also not available next week,” declared the judge.
