Attempted hijacker to remain in custody

By Megan Hartogh

The 21-year-old University of Cape Town student, who attempted to hijack an SAA flight from Cape Town to Johannesburg on Saturday, appeared in the Bellville magistrate’s court on Monday. Tinashe Rioga, who is from Zimbabwe, faces two provisional charges. These are: assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm, and the other of contravening aviation regularities by attempting to seize the aircraft while in flight. According to reports, the third year UCT student’s case will be postponed until June 26th, to allow for further investigation into the matter. Until then, Rioga will remain in police custody at the Bellville South police station.
