The bail application of the two men accused of the rape and murder of Sinoxolo Mafevuka, who was found dead in a toilet, is expected to take place in the Khayelitsha Magistrate's Court today.

The two people arrested are cousins of her boyfriend, and before she died they had apparently confronted her about leaving a bar with another man.

During their last appearance Investigating Officer Isaac Tshabalala told Magistrate Xolani Menyiwe in the Khayelitsha Magistrate’s Court that the 19-year-old's boyfriend was still being investigated in connection with the case.

Deputy Police Minister Maggie Sotyu visited the area after her murder and demanded to know why the investigation was taking so long.

Tshabalala also spoke of the difficulty investigators encountered when trying to extract DNA evidence for the case because water had run over Sinoxolo's body.

The magistrate has ordered that the cousins not be named.
