gavel thumb100 TimesLIVE reports that a suspect arrested in connection with the shooting of two metro police officers in Durban last month appeared to be in great pain as he hobbled into the dock alongside three others on Monday.  

Nkululeko Zuma, 19, groaned loudly as he held on to his crutches when he appeared for the second time in the Verulam Magistrate's Court.  Zuma had not been in court on some previous occasions as he had been under police watch in hospital.  At the time of his arrest, a Hawks spokesperson indicated that Zuma had been wounded, but would not provide details.  Zuma is charged, along with three others, with the murders of Sgt Zephinia Dladla, 61, and Const Sonto Mhlanga, 40, who were gunned down while guarding the home of Ward 52 councillor Moses Zulu in Bhambayi, near Phoenix, last month.  A three-day bail application is set to start on 18 June.
