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.

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.Nkosikhona Duma, Reporter - EWN
