They refused to step into the dock at the Boksburg magistrate's court earlier, claiming they're being made scapegoats.

"This gentleman [police officer] is being dodgy. He arrived in Qalakabusha where I live and asked for Buthelezi, saying he wants to charge him for this crime," Ntuli said.

"He said Buthelezi is connected to the crime, but today he's calling us. He is here. I'm not talking about someone who isn't here."

Meyiwa was shot dead six years ago.
