David and his co-accused Tumelo Tshukudu appeared before Principal Magistrate Goodwill Makofi who detained them in prison to await trial at the High Court. Makofi took the decision to commit the case to the High Court in the absence of David’s attorney Kgosietsile Ngakaagae.
the case could have been committed to the High Court on November 29, but you and your attorney failed to attend court. You even failed to update court on why you didn’t appear,” said Makofi.
Makofi said he commits the case to the High Court with David facing the two counts and his co-accused facing just one count of murder.
