While Lefefa made his way to the dock, the magistrate confirmed that he was currently in custody.

Furthermore, the magistrate stated that Lefefa’s advocate was at court on Tuesday, but she was absent on the day Lefafa appeared. According to him, the advocate is currently in Cape Town, and therefore the case was postponed to June 13.

“You will remain in custody until then,” the magistrate continued.

Lefefa exited the dock and left the regional court.
