Today, 27 January, the Orkney Magistrates’ Court in North West, postponed the case of Sibusiso Kula (34), to 31 January 2023, for judgement on his bail application.

Kula is facing a murder charge following the death of his wife. The state and the defence attorney read affidavits in their arguments.

According to Henry Mamothame
NPA regional spokesperson, Kula further took a stand in his pursuit of being granted bail.

“The state also pleaded with the court not to grant Kula bail, as it saw no compelling circumstances.

“The state further argued that the offence being a schedule 6 criminal matter, should warrant the court not to grant him bail as he is charged with premeditated murder,” said Mamothame.

Police reports revealed 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.

Mamothame said the matter was reported by the medical facility where she was allegedly transported by the accused to receive medical attention.

“He told the police that he was not present at his home when the incident occurred.

“Following thorough investigations by the police linked to the alleged murder, he 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,” Mamothame said.
