KwaZulu-Natal - A man suspected to be behind the killing of a 50-year-old man appeared in the Empangeni Magistrate's Court on murder charges on Monday, KwaZulu-Natal police said.

Captain Thulani Zwane said the case was postponed to November 19 and he would remain in custody.

“It is alleged that on 6 November, Sigwamba Biyela was walking along Main Road when he was allegedly approached by two suspects. One shot him in the head and he was declared dead at the scene,” Captain Thulani Zwane said.

One of the alleged attackers was arrested shortly afterwards. Police were still searching for the other. The motive for the murder was still unclear. - Sapa
