gavel thumb100 ANA reports that an Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (Amcu) member charged with unlawful possession of a firearm and ammunition appeared briefly in the Brits Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday.  

The case against William Nyenyane was postponed to 28 November.  He was denied bail on 30 October, when his case was transferred to the regional court.  The state alleges he was found in possession of a firearm and ammunition when he was arrested on 6 January in a murder case.  He has denied the charge, stating that the police planted the firearm on his waist when they arrested him at Lonmin’s Hossy shaft.  Nyenyane is one of the 14 Marikana men accused of hacking Sabata Petrus Chale to death in Marikana on 8 December 2016, allegedly over the allocation of low-cost (RDP) houses.  They are all due to appear in the North West High Court in Mogwase in December for a pre-trial conference.
