The trial of six people accused of the murder of Gauteng Department of Health official Babita Deokaran has been delayed owing to maintenance work disrupting the court precinct's water supply. Phakamani Hadebe, Zitha Radebe, Hlangano Ndlovu, Sanele Mbhele, Siphiwe Mazibuko, and Siphakanyiswa Dladla have been charged with murder, attempted murder, conspiracy to commit murder, and possession of an unlicensed handgun and ammunition.
Their bail application was set to be heard in the Johannesburg Magistrate's Court on Friday. The State and the Defense were both expected to make closing arguments. However, the court precinct was hit by water disruptions in the city this week as a result of extensive repair work on Rand Water's network. As a result, the case has been postponed to the 30th of November. The bail application was filed earlier this month when it was revealed that Hadebe listed former Health Minister Zweli Mkhize as their paymaster in a now-disputed statement to police. Mkhize has said unequivocally that he is not participating.
