The man accused of killing two African National Congress (ANC) activists is expected to appear in the Pietermaritzburg Magistrate’s Court on Thursday.

Bonginkosi Shabalala faces two counts of murder and is out on R5,000 bail. He stands accused of gunning down ANC Ward 12 activists Badedile Tshapa and Phetheni Ngubane in June.

On August 23, 40-year-old Shabalala was warned by Magistrate Miranda Boikhutso that he would be arrested if he failed to abide by his bail conditions. The court heard that he had left the Bulwer area in violation of his bail conditions.

His lawyer Phumlani Fakude told the court that Shabalala, who is a security guard, had been to his workplace in Pietermaritzburg.

During his previous court appearance he informed the court that he would ask his employer to relocate him to Bulwer.

Magistrate Boikhutso warned Shabalala that if he was spotted in Pietermaritzburg again, his bail conditions would be revoked.
