Accused in Ronnie Makgato ritual murder to know their fate

The High Court in Polokwane in Limpopo will today continue to hand down judgment in the case involving two prominent businessmen and their two co-accused.

They faced charges of murder, kidnapping and defeating the ends of justice after allegedly killing Ronnie Makgato for ritual-related purposes in 2006.

Makgato had been kidnapped and reported missing in Soshanguve, north of Pretoria.

The bereaved family still needs his remains to give him a decent funeral and to get closure.

The accused businessmen, Marcus Makgato and Joshua Hlako, along with their co-accused, Amanda Makgato and Khumbelo Mabirimisa, will know their fate.

Judge Gerrit Muller has been handing down the much-anticipated judgment since yesterday.

He has been reviewing the evidence presented before him, with the final judgment expected to be made today.

During the trial, a state witness told the court that Ronnie Makgato was allegedly killed for ritual-related purposes.

All the accused have not pleaded guilty, and they are out on bail.
