PRETORIA - Notorious Mamelodi taxi boss Vusi "Khekhe" Mathibela is planning to bring an application to challenge the consitutionality of the section of the Criminal Procedure Act which allows courts to revoke the bail of defendants in their absence from court.
Mathibela, 33, is out on bail for the alleged murder of North West businessman Wandile Bozwane and attempted murder of his female companion, Mpho Baloyi, who were shot at a traffic light on the N1 Garsfontein off-ramp in 2015.
Mathibela, also known as Nyawane because he walks with a limp, briefly appeared at the Pretoria high court on Friday sporting a grey suit and white shirt.
He was arrested on a separate matter on March 13 on charges of extortion, intimidation and assault. He subsequently appeared in the lower court and is still in custody.
The State said that Mathibela was arrested while preparing to go on a holiday to Dubai despite his bail conditions preventing him from leaving the country.
