Pretoria - Security was tight at the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on Monday ahead of the appearance of a man implicated in the rape and murder of two Diepsloot toddlers.
Armed police officers manned the doors of the courtroom. More armed officers were inside the courtroom.
Outside the court premises, several journalists with cameras stood at the gates hoping to get a glimpse of the suspect.
A 29-year-old man was expected to appear for the murders of Yonelisa Mali, two, and her three-year-old cousin Zandile Mali.
The toddlers were found dead in a communal toilet on Tuesday after they were reported missing several days earlier. It was believed they had been raped.
