Yanga Janet out on bail

Yanga Janet was released on bail for R500 last week. The case will be heard today (2 September 2008) outside the Khayelitsha Regional Court. TAC will be picketing outside the court to demand that justice is served.

On 8 April 2008, TAC filed an urgent application at the Cape High Court for protection against Yanga Janet who had been intimidating and threatening TAC members in Harare Khayelitsha. Janet had been one of the four accused in the Nandipha Makeke rape and murder case, but the charges against him were dismissed because of a lack of evidence. He was arrested on 15 May 2008 on charges of murder, attempted murder and intimidation. For more on the Nandipha Makeke case follow this link.
