The man appeared in the Pinetown Magistrate's Court on Wednesday where the matter was postponed to next month.

A charge of rape has been added in the case of the Durban man accused of murdering his four children - including a stepdaughter.

The man who cannot be named until he has pleaded, appeared in the Pinetown Magistrate's Court on Wednesday where the matter was postponed to next month.

Eyewitness News reporter Nkosikhona Duma has more on the story.

The National Prosecuting Authority has released limited details about the case.

They are still investigating this charge of rape and it has led to them asking for postponement into the matter for today to 7 November so that the charge of rape can be dealt with with the four counts of murder.

What we have been informed is that the charge of rape is a separate incident.
