In 2011 (2) SACR 437 (GSJ) the accused was charged on four counts: conspiracy to murder persons A, B, C and D in terms of section 18(2)(a) of the Riotous Assembly Act 17 of 1956; attempted murder in respect of person A and, on the third count, conspiracy to murder person K. On the third count, it was alleged in the indictment that the accused had conspired, together with other people, with person K himself (a prominent businessman, Mr Brett Kebble) to aid or procure the murder of K. In terms of count 4, the accused was also charged with the murder of K. As pointed out by Kgomo J, this was not a "run-of-the-mill case of murder and conspiracy" but was about hidden and / or sinister agendas perpetrated by shoddy characters as well as ostensibly crooked and/or greedy business persons.
