By Staff Reporter

LENYENYE: The postponements in the attempted murder case involving Mark Scott-Crossley and Silence Mabunda are emotionally draining.

This is according to Nyiko Mabunda, the brother of the victim.

Mabunda spoke to Tzaneen Voice at the back of yet another postponement of the 7-year-long case.

Judgement in the case was set to be handed down at the Lenyenye Regional Court on Monday, however, it was delayed due to load-shedding leading to yet another postponement.

During the court proceedings, the Magistrate read out the arguments of both the victim and the accused.

The 38-year-old Mabunda alleges that Mark Scott-Crossley knocked him down and ran over him with a 4×4 bakkie at Campus Res in Hoedspruit back in December 2016, following a suspected racial argument.

Scott-Crossley admitted to having a minor argument with Mabunda, however denied uttering any racial words and knocking down Mabunda with a vehicle.

Judgement has now been reserved for October 4th and if there is another time factor on the day, it will be heard on October 30th.
