JOHANNESBURG - The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) says it expects police to present DNA results in court this morning, which could positively link four of the five men accused of the rape and murder of two Diepsloot cousins.

The case is expected to be heard in the next hour.

The state has charged the men with the murder of cousins Zandile and Yonelisa Mali, whose bodies were found in a toilet cubicle two weeks ago.

Dozens of Diepsloot residents, wearing Agang South Africa and Congress of the People (Cope) t-shirts, are singing and chanting outside the Pretoria Magistrates Court ahead of the appearance of five accused.

Community members are carrying placards reading " Stop raping our children" and "No bail for rapists and killers".

A community leader has told Eyewitness News they want justice.

"Today we are expecting justice to take its part or to play its role in this case."

The NPA says it expects DNA results in court today to boost its case against four of the accused.

The fifth man, believed to be the prime suspect has confessed to the crime.

The girls were buried just days after they were discovered.
