The affordable education loan option
Cape Town - A man accused of murdering 23-year-old Sharafat Kader for his car and leaving him to die in Clovelly is wanted by Fish Hoek police.
Provincial police on Wednesday said the immediate arrest of Enrico Erasmus is sought.
A warrant of arrest was first issued for Erasmus when he failed to appear in the Wynberg Regional Court on July 16.
The case was postponed to July 31, when Erasmus again did not show up. On that day the prosecution provisionally withdrew charges of aggravated robbery and murder against Erasmus’s co-accused, Igshaan Pietersen.
He is expected to be recharged once Erasmus has been traced.
It is the State’s case that Erasmus and Pietersen beat Kader to death with a spanner on June 6, 2011.
They allegedly drove to Fish Hoek and dumped his battered body in Clovelly. A man out walking his dog later that morning came across a dying Kader beside the road.
By the time paramedics arrived, Kader had died.
Anyone who can help trace Erasmus has been urged to contact Constable Makabongwe Ngqangashe on 072 439 1598 or 021 784 2700.
