Court packed for Anene accused

Comment on this story

Bredasdorp, Western Cape - The Bredasdorp Magistrate's Court was packed on Monday morning ahead of the appearance of a man accused of raping and killing Anene Booysen.

The 17-year-old was found seriously injured at a construction site last week Saturday and later died from her injuries. She was buried in the rural town at the weekend.

The crimes sparked outrage from all sectors of society, including President Jacob Zuma.

On Monday morning reporters and cameramen jostled for a space and took up half of the court room.

Magistrate Graham Cupido would first deal with other cases on the court roll.

Booysen's case was likely to be called later in the morning. - Sapa
