The Orkney Magistrates’ Court postponed the case against Sibusiso Kula (34) to 27 January 2023 for a formal bail application. Kula is facing a murder charge following the death of his wife. The state intends to oppose bail, owing to the seriousness of the matter.

North West NPA spokesperson Henry Mamothame said police reports reveal that Kula’s wife was found murdered on 27 November 2022, in what seemed like a robbery. “She was found with a stab wound on her back but the object that was used for her alleged murder has not been recovered”.

The matter was reported by the accused who indicated that he was not at the house when the incident occurred.

Mamothame added that following thorough police investigations,Kula was arrested on Friday, 20 January 2023 and charged with murder. Police investigations are still underway and Kula will remain in police custody until the next court appearance.
