Andrew Ndlovu, also known as Andrew Druza, the man who was recently arrested for the murder of Christine Robinson (59) in July 2014,’s court case has been postponed again. It was his second appearance in court since he was arrested in late July.
Mashudu Malabi-Dzhangi, spokesperson for the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA), confirmed that Ndlovu is expected to appear in court again on October 29. He was not granted bail and will remain in custody.
Ndlovu appeared in court for the first time last Monday. He faces charges of murder, rape, burglary with intent to steal and theft. He is also accused of violating the Immigration Act.
Ian Cameron, independent crime expert, has teamed up with former Col. Sakkie Louwrens, who was the investigating officer in Robinson’s murder at the time, worked to catch Ndlovu.
Robinson was stabbed several times in July 2014 with a knife in her house at the Rra-Ditau Bush Lodge outside Thabazimbi and then allegedly raped and robbed. The suspect then fled. Ndlovu was an employee at the lodge at the time of the incident and had apparently been working for Robinson for more than ten years.
Dirk Nel of the Transvaal Agricultural Union ‘(TAU SA)’s Thabazimbi district, says members of the community marched to court in about 500 vehicles on Thursday. This march was organized to support family and friends and in protest against farm attacks and killings.
TAU SA organized the march with the necessary approval from the police and according to the necessary isolation regulations.
“We will no longer allow any farm attacks to go unnoticed and unpunished,” said Henk van de Graaf, the regional chairman of TAU SA North. “We will stand together as a community and support where the government does not have the will to do so.”
