This according to a group of women activists who marched to the Johannesburg central police station to demand quicker turnaround times for gender violence cases.

The Roodepoort magistrates’ court had to be deep-cleaned after positive cases of COVID-19 were reported last week.

Pule’s family said they were told the case would resume on 9 July only to be informed it is scheduled for 23 July, according to the charge sheet.

The NPA has yet to comment on the reasons for the mix-up.
