North West - Residents of Mmakau, outside Brits, were protesting at the Ga-Rankuwa Magistrate's Court on Tuesday, North West police said.
Captain Amanda Funani said residents were calling on the court not to grant a 41-year-old man bail. He is accused of the murder of 11-year-old Ofentse Mogale.
He allegedly broke into her parent's Mmakau home on February 2 and snatched her as she was sleeping with her younger sibling.
Her body was later found in a neighbour's shack, hidden under a bed. She had been strangled. - Sapa
