Between Monday and Friday, the High Court is supposed to deliver the verdict in the trial in which both ’Malehlohonolo and her son Lehlohonolo are accused of the murder of two Koalabata boys for ritual purposes.
The Scotts are alleged to have murdered their neighbours, Moholobela Seetsa and Kamohelo Mohata in January and June, 2012 respectively.
Advocate Thulo Hoeane who represents both accused told the court he had no idea where ’Malehlohonolo had disappeared to.
He said he made several attempts to locate her before court proceedings commenced on Monday but to no avail.
’Malehlohonolo had been ill for quite some time and the court consequently excused her from attending proceedings.
Hoeane on Monday therefore asked the court to deliver its decision in her absence.
