Mjonondwane said the 15-year-old was taken to Leratong Hospital where an age evaluation was led and it was laid out that he was a minor and could be 16 years of age.
He has been assumed to a position of wellbeing.
One of the suspects who showed up today (Thurs) let the court know that he was a South African resident. Be that as it may, Mjonondwane said his ethnicity couldn't be affirmed.
"The NPA can affirm his ethnicity after examinations have been closed."
Mjonondwane said the hearings of the 82 suspects will be isolated as the procedures proceed, the 14 charged will show up independently from the remainder of the gathering.
The matter has been delayed to August 28.
