The sole survivor of a trio of men alleged to have massacred two Shongweni families in 2010 sat attentively in the dock of the Durban High Court yesterday as police officers testified during a trial-within-a-trial in which the admissibility of certain evidence was being disputed.
Sihle Sandile Ndlovu, 25, is charged with six counts of murder, as well as rape, attempted murder and two counts of housebreaking.
His alleged accomplices – brothers Philani and Bhejane Nxele – were killed in a shoot-out with police in November 2010. The men allegedly went on a crime spree on the night of October 25, 2010, and early the following morning.
They allegedly killed four members of the Zulu family – including a two-year-old boy – before going to another property, where a 13-year-old girl was raped and her pregnant sister shot. The trial continues today. - Daily News
