The murder case of the alleged mastermind behind the killing of 28-year-old Tshegofatso Pule, is expected to continue on Monday morning in the High Court in Johannesburg.
Police arrested 32-year-old Nthuthuko Shoba at his home in Florida last year, after the man, Muzikayise Malepane, convicted of Pule’s murder, entered into a plea agreement with the state to testify against Shoba.
Shoba was denied bail again in September 2021.
In June 2020, Pule’s body was found in an open veld in Roodepoort. She was eight months pregnant at the time.
