Their killer gave up on getting bail last month and asked for a magistrate from outside the Pinetown district to take his case.

Sikhakhane’s lawyer, however, made a U-turn and informed the court last Thursday that Sikhakhane intended to reapply for bail.

Last Monday, prosecutor Nomcebo Xulu informed the court that they had received the postmortem findings and were awaiting the ballistic and video evidence. Xulu responded that the investigating officer would be out of the office until January 15 in relation to the requested date.

The case was continued to January 19 so that a formal bail request could be made.

The state would reject bail, according to Xulu.

Action SA leader in KwaZulu-Natal, Zwakele Mncwango, who attended the case, said: “The families were hoping to get closure by hearing from him of what really happened and why he killed them. Unfortunately, the families will never get answers because Mlungisi decided to commit suicide yesterday inside Westville prison.

“We hope correctional services will investigate he was able to hang himself inside the prison cell.”

A petition, started by Majozi’s relative Precious Ndwalane on, has gained over 8,000 signatures in opposition to Sikhakane’s bail application.

“Enhle and another girl, Sithembile Ngobese (24), were both in a relationship with the police officer who is believed to have shot and killed both of them at his house. Enhle and Sithembile were shot in the head and other parts of their bodies and were declared dead by paramedics.

“11 empty cartridges were found at the scene of the crime. The accused police officer is being held in custody and his bail hearing was postponed to November 7 2022 at the Pinetown Magistrate Court,” the petition stated.

“The accused police officer, Mlungisi Blessing Sikhakhane, took away my brother’s firstborn daughter and Nomsa’s only child. He also took the life of Sithembile.

“Two families have suffered an unimaginable loss at the hands of a man who swore to serve and protect.

“Enhle and Sithembile died a senseless and cruel death. The very thought of him walking the streets and potentially going back to his job is scary and terrifying. Our families are at risk and we don’t even want to imagine him doing this to yet another innocent family.

“Society has no place for a man like Mlungisi. The police force has no place for an officer like Mlungisi. Enhle and Sithembile deserve justice. They had their whole lives and he recklessly took away their future and left us in deep hurt and unbearable suffering.”
