CAPE TOWN - Three men accused of the murder of a Tulbagh doctor are expected to appear in the local magistrates court on Tuesday.

Fifty-eight-year-old Dr Roelof Botha’s body was found with multiple stab wounds, in the community last Monday.

His alleged murderers briefly appeared in court last week.

Aiden Abels, Justin Adonis and Andrew Gouws are scheduled to appear in the Tulbagh Magistrates Court on charges of murder.

According to reports, Botha’s body was found lying along Schalkenbosch Road after he visited a zebra camp on his farm.
