CAPE TOWN - The man accused of the rape and murder of Bredasdorp teenager Anene Booysen is again due back in the dock on Monday.

Johannes Kana who previously confessed to sexually assaulting the 17-year-old, but not killing her, was arrested in February.

The arrest came just days before a security guard found Booysen mutilated at a construction site.

If things go according to plan, Kana's court proceedings will continue in the Bredasdorp Magistrates Court.

Kana is also expected to be formally charged in court.

Last month his co accused Jonathan Davids's charges were withdrawn due to lack of evidence but the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) indicated it has a strong case against Kana and apart from his confession there is evidence linking him to the crime.

Meanwhile, the NPA was criticised on the matter.

Bredasdorp resident Suzie Moses said she was shocked and couldn't believe Davids was a free man.

"The police must do their properly and arrest the right people."
