Africa-Press – South-Africa. The criminal case against the man accused of murdering his ex-girlfriend, Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) student Ntokozo Xaba, has been postponed because police have not yet finalised the investigation.
Ngcebo Thusi, 23, appeared briefly in the Pretoria Magistrate’s Court on Thursday.
The prosecutor, Mashudu Nembulunge, asked the court for a postponement, and said further investigation had to take place.
The matter was postponed to 2 June.
Thusi is still in custody after abandoning his bid for bail during his first court appearance in February.
News24 previously reported that Thusi was charged with defeating the ends of justice and murder after he allegedly stabbed Xaba at a TUT residence in February.
According to police, the two were allegedly drinking with friends the night before the murder. The friends left, and Xaba’s body was found with stab wounds to the neck the following day.
Paramedics rushed to the scene, and they found Xaba unresponsive in her room. She was declared dead, the statement read.
Both Thusi and Xaba were studying at TUT.
