Mbombela anaesthetist’s murder: Case continues today

The three men accused of the murder of Dr Nicholas Procter are expected to make their next court appearance via live camera link.

The case against Bheki Ndlovu (38), Nkateko Tshidzumba (24) and Siyabonga Kekana (20), the three men accused of murdering Mbombela anaesthetist Dr Nicholas Procter on January 31, is set to continue in the Nelspruit Magistrate’s Court today.

The men last appeared in court on April 11, when the state prosecutor asked for a postponement, as the state said it was awaiting evidence in the case, including three witness statements, some search warrants, video footage and the post-mortem report.

The magistrate postponed the matter to June 7 and advised that the three men will not appear in person, but via a live camera link from the prison in which they are being held.

These men are facing charges of attempted theft, theft, robbery with aggravated circumstances, kidnapping and murder.

Procter was found dead, with his hands and feet tied, in a flat that was run as a vacation rental unit in the Mopani block of Green Valley Estate on the afternoon of February 1.

He was first reported missing when he had not shown up for work at Mediclinic Nelspruit that morning.
