Cape Town - The murder case for 12-year-old Sibusiso Dakuse was postponed again after being heard last week Friday.

The body of the Hout Bay boy was found in the reeds not far from his home in March last year.

The accused in his murder Marvin Minnaar, 24, was caught on CCTV footage, being the last person to have walked with Dakuse before he died.

The Grade 7 pupil at Sentinel Primary School, went missing after leaving his Mandela Park home to play with his friends on February 26 last year.

Soon after Minnaar’s arrest last year he made a confession. The slain boy was his basketball student.

Minnaar is believed to have lured Dakuse after he left his home and took him to Kronendal Farm – 10 minutes from his home. His body was later discovered among the reeds on the farm.

Minaar made an appearance at the Western Cape High Court in May for a pre-trial conference where the State revealed they were still awaiting the DNA results.

National Prosecuting Authority spokesperson Eric Ntabazalila said that the matter would again be heard on September 30, 2021 for a pre-trial hearing.
