Judgment in the so-called, Tshegofatso Pule murder trial will be handed down on the 25th of March at the High Court in Johannesburg.
This after, Ntuthuko Shoba’s defense lawyer asked the court to re-open the case for CCTV footage to be shown.
Shoba is accused of being the mastermind behind Pule’s murder, who was eight months pregnant at the time.
Defense lawyer, Norman Makhubela asked the court to re-open the case in order for him to show CCTV footage of Pule leaving Shoba’s complex on that fateful night.
This was in an attempt to answer what happened in the 3 minutes between Pule being picked up by convicted murderer, Muzi Malepane and Shoba going back inside.
While the video shows the 3-minute gap, it couldn’t provide further details of what had transpired between the three parties.
The showing of Pule’s last minutes alive angered the Pule family. Emotions ran high as some could not hold back their tears, prompting them to leave the courtroom.
Judge Stuart Wilson will hand down judgment on the 25th of this month.
