Eyewitness News reporter Lizelle Persens says the case has been postponed to April for further investigations.

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.
