He told the court yesterday, 19 November 2018 that he would be opting for legal aid. His details were taken down before the matter was adjourned until early next month.
Mkhize and another suspect allegedly stole Sukhraj’s vehicle that had been parked outside Sadia’s grandparents house. The suspects sped off while the little girl was still inside the vehicle.
Shots were fired and Sadia sustained a fatal gunshot wound. The suspects then crashed the vehicle and Mkhize was arrested. His accomplice died at the scene.
