gavel thumb100 TimesLIVE reports that three men alleged to be behind the brazen assassination of Rand Water executive Teboho Joala and his bodyguard Sifiso Shange in January appeared in the Lenasia Magistrate's Court on Monday.

The trio, identified as Khulekani Mdluli, Zamokuhle Ntombela and Lindani Mtshali, are alleged to have killed Joala and Shange in full view of a group of children at a school event held in a hall in Zakariyya Park. The trio were charged with two counts of premeditated murder and three counts of attempted murder. Their case was postponed to 29 April when they are expected to apply for bail. Johannesburg city council chief whip Sithembiso Zungu, who was sitting next to Joala at the fateful event, said an assailant disguised as a community member rushed the stage and opened fire on Joala. The motive for the killing remains unclear.
