Seven Men Accused Of Murdering Elvis Nyathi In Diepsloot Back In Court

The seven men accused of the murder of Elvis Nyathi, a Zimbabwean national and Diesploot resident on 6 April are expected back in the Randburg Magistrates Court, in Johannesburg, on Monday, 25 April, in the morning.

They face charges of murder, attempted murder, kidnapping, robbery, and assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm.

The accused appeared in court on Friday last week where the matter was postponed to Monday.

They are expected to apply for bail this morning when they return to the dock.

On Friday, one of the accused delayed court proceedings as he requested time to get legal representation from legal aid.

The accused’s lawyer told the court that she would be recusing herself, citing a lack of communication with her client.

The late Elvis Nyathi Banajo Mbodazwe was born on 14 February 1979, at Brunapeg Hospital to parents Mfanyana Nyathi and Sipho Ndlovu.

He grew up at Tshatshe, Sewula in Kezi, and did his primary education at Sewula Primary School in Matabeleland South Province.

Nyathi’s family moved to Insuza and in 2006 he left for South Africa, where he was a gardener until his death.

In South Africa, he lived in Diesploot Extension One where he was beaten, stoned and set alight metres from his home.

Nyathi was currently building his own home in Ntabazinduna, Umguza District, Matabeleland North Province.

He leaves behind his wife Nomsa Tshuma and four children.
