Majali in custody until Tuesday
The five accused in the Kalahari Resources hijacking appeared in the Johannesburg Commercial Crimes Court on Friday morning for their bail hearing. Magistrate Ashika Ramlal ruled that the hearing would be postponed to Tuesday to give the prosecution time to place Haralambous Sferopoulos, Stephen Khoza and Elvis Bongani Ndala under mental observation. Sferopolous and Khoza have previously been committed to Sterkfontein Mental Hospital. Ramlal also allowed the prosecution until Tuesday to continue its investigations into various other allegations against controversial businessman Sandile Majali. The four will remain in custody until the next court date on Tuesday. The fifth applicant, Linda Walencia Dlamini, was granted bail set at R10,000. Read more: Times Live
