Tazne van Wyk's alleged killer has 11 convictions to his name - report
Moehydien Pangaker's case for allegedly murdering 8-year-old Tazne van Wyk has been postponed until April for further investigation.
The 54-year appeared in the Goodwood Magistrate's Court where residents crowded the Court and the street outside.
Chaos erupted when the protesters banged on doors chanting they want justice.
The body of van Wyk was found in a stormwater pipe outside Worcester on Wednesday night after she was kidnapped nearly two weeks ago.
