Polokwane businessman, Rameez Patel, who is accused of killing his mother and his wife was released on R5,000 bail.

According to a media release from the NPA on Friday afternoon, Patel appeared at the Polokwane Magistrate Court before magistrate Ms Janine Ungerer in connection with charges of murder of his mother, Muhajeen and his wife, Fatima Patel.

The bail application was brought based on new facts which link him to the murder of his mother. This allegedly happened soon after the killing of his wife.

His brother, Razeen, who also survived an attempt on his life, testified in court, under tight security late last year. He testified that their mother was later attacked and killed in her home.

The matter postponed to 18 August 2020 Polokwane Magistrate court.
