The family of slain Thoriso Themane is disappointed that two suspects in his killing have been granted R1 000 bail each at the Polokwane Magistrates’ Court.

Maleka Chuene and Alfred Mothapo handed themselves over to police after Themane’s death last month.

The third adult suspect in the case, Russia Chabangu, was released due to lack of evidence.

A 13-year-old suspect who was arrested over the weekend also appeared at the Children’s Court and his case has been postponed to Thursday.

Themane’s  brother, Karabo, says the family is not happy at the granting of bail.

He says: “I was expecting every suspect to be denied bail until solid evidence or they are acquitted by the court. Coming to court today, I have learnt that only one story will be told from now which is the side of the suspects. My brother’s story won’t be told when the post-mortem there shows he received a significant blow at the back of the head, possibly from a wheel spanner.”
