Members of the African Christian Democratic Party have protested outside the Benoni Magistrate’s Court against the granting bail to a man accused of murdering his wife.
Boy Hlatshwayo allegedly shot his wife four times in May this year and has been released on four-thousand-Rand bail.
The case has been postponed 14 October 2010, and might be moved to the South Gauteng High Court.
Meanwhile, the ACDP says former president Thabo Mbeki’s bodyguards and members of the police should be charged with negligence.
This follows an incident last night where a man ran on to the stage at the University of Pretoria while Mbeki was delivering a lecture.
The man is said to have entered the lecture theatre, calling for Mbeki to step down from the stage.
He then ran up and threw an object at Mbeki’s feet before being detained by security members.
