The former apartheid security branch is facing three counts of murder and one attempted murder. The three which included Fanyana Nhlapho, Eustice Bimbo Madikela, Ntshingo Matabane, and Zandisile Musi died as a result of the explosive back in 1982 which makes it 40 years ago. By then the deceased were aged between 17 and 21 years. Their families approached the court in September 2020 in a bid to bring the policemen to justice for the COSAS FOUR as they are called.

The spokesperson for the families of the victims Mbulelo Musi told the journalist that Rorich was a bomb expert.

Zandisile was arrested during the State of Emergency and was given a five-year sentence at Robben Island in 1987. He was again released in 1991 as he had impaired hearing as a result of the explosives in 1982. He, unfortunately, passed away and was laid to rest in Krugersdorp. The security police involved in the explosives were denied amnesty by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission in 1999, hence they are only appearing in court now.
