Former ANC MP’s murder case ready for pre-trial hearing

The murder case of former ANC MP Sibusiso Kula is ready for a pre-trial hearing, the National Prosecuting Authority has confirmed.

Kula will appear before the North West High Court for a pre-trial conferencing on January 29 for the murder of his wife Jennifer Mohlomi in 2022.

He was granted bail of R50 000 by the North West High Court after the 34-year-old’s arrest in January.

Henry Mamothame, spokesperson for the National Prosecuting Authority in North West, said prosecutor advocate Benny Kalakgosi provided Kula’s attorney with an indictment in order for his team to prepare for the pre-trial hearing where a trial date will be decided.

Mamothame said investigations have been completed and the state is ready to proceed with trial.
Reports twice a day at police station
He said Kula was ordered to surrender his passport, report twice a day at the nearest police station, provide the investigating officer with his work itinerary, report to the investigating officer if he must move out of his residential jurisdiction, and have no contact with his children.

His bid to have the case struck off the roll was previously rejected by the court.

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,” reads the statement.

Kula had initially told police that he was not at home when his wife was killed.

However, a police investigation linked him to the alleged murder, resulting in his arrest on 20 January.
