The matter has been postponed for further investigations, and Kula’s defense has expressed their intention to file a review application following the court’s decision.

Challenges to the Murder Case:

Kula’s defense argued that his rights were not properly explained to him, which could potentially be used against him in a future trial.

They also questioned the validity of the murder charges against their client.

Additionally, they requested a list of witnesses as previously ordered by the high court when Kula was granted bail.

Opposition from the State Prosecutor:

The state prosecutor, Adv Phuti Sekoadi, opposed the application, stating that the case is still under investigation and that the charges are appropriately formulated based on the evidence available in the docket.
