7 Men Accused Of Killing Elvis Nyathi Return To Court1 year ago
The seven men accused of killing Zimbabwean national Elvis Nyathi will return to court in South Africa on Thursday.
Nyathi (43) died after he was beaten and set on fire by a violent anti-immigrant mob in Diepsloot, Johannesburg on 6 April this year.
The Zimbabwean was attacked at a time when Diepsloot residents were protesting over the high crime levels in the area which some locals had blamed on foreign nationals.
In the wake of Nyathi’s death, seven men were arrested and charged with murder as well as attempted murder, kidnapping, assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm, robbery with aggravating circumstances and extortion.
They made their first appearance in court in April and later in May when they were granted bail of R3 000 each.
