Decision expected on Cuburne van Wyk murder accused
Nathaniel Katlego Mpoku is due to appear in the Boksburg Magistrates Court today.
JOHANNESBURG - The Gauteng Director of Public Prosecutions is expected to decide today whether a man accused of the murder of three-year-old Cuburne van Wyk will face charges.
The child's burnt body was found at a dump site in Reiger Park in August.
Nathaniel Katlego Mpoku (25) is due to appear in the Boksburg Magistrates Court today.
Van Wyk's family say they are frustrated with manner in which his case has been handled so far and say they are starting to lose hope that justice will ever be done.
The family says they will not be surprised if the case will not be thrown out.
The child disappeared while playing outside with his siblings. His body was discovered by a passer-by at a mine dump three days later.
This is the latest case to be called into question after charges were dropped in the case involving slain football star Senzo Meyiwa who was shot dead while visiting his girlfriend's mother's home in Vosloorus on 26 October.
Charges were also withdrawn against the man accused of murdering four-year-old Taegrin Morris, who was dragged by his mother's car during a hijacking in July.
