Johannesburg - The State does not have a strong case against 61-year-old Fita Khupe, lawyer Gerhard Landman told the Protea Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.
Landman told the court that if the State was relying on the deceased, Ernest Mabaso’s confession for Khupe to not be granted bail, they do not have a strong case.
Meanwhile, Prosecutor Tumelo Maunye argued that the State does have a strong case against Khupe.
Khupe was expected to apply for bail, he is accused of the murder of seven Vlakfontein family members.
On his last appearance, the court heard that his co-accused, 27-year-old Mabaso committed suicide in a cell in Cape Town.
