Former ANC MP accused of killing wife remains out on bail

Former ANC MP Sibusiso Kula, who is accused of murdering his wife in 2022, remains on R50 000 bail.

His case was postponed to October so that the director of public prosecutions (DPP) can make a decision on whether to transfer the case to the high court.

Kula appeared in the Orkney magistrate’s court in the North West on Wednesday. The 34-year-old was arrested on January 20 and charged with murder of his wife Jennifer Mohlomi.

According to Henry Mamothame, spokesperson for the National Prosecuting Authority, Kula’s attorney argued against the postponement citing unreasonable delay by the state.

“However, the state indicated that previous postponements were as a result of incomplete investigations,” said Mamothame.

“Investigations have been completed and the state is ready to act on the awaited instruction from the DPP.”

He was ordered to surrender his passports, report twice a day at the nearest police station, provide the investigating officer with his work itinerary and report to the investigating officer if moves outside his residential jurisdiction. 

Kula’s bail conditions also prevent him from having any direct or indirect contact with his children.

According to police reports, Mohlomi was found murdered on November 27 2022 in what seemed like a robbery.

“She was found with a stab wound on her back but the object that was used for her alleged murder has not been recovered.

“The matter was reported by the medical facility where she was allegedly transported by Kula to receive medical attention.”

He told police that he was not present at his home when his wife was killed.

Following thorough investigations by the police, the suspected murderer was linked to the alleged murder and was subsequently arrested.
