During a press briefing on Tuesday, Lieutenant-General Nhlanhla Mkhwanazi said although the South African Police Service is satisfied with all the evidence that they have gathered, “things happen in court” and lawyers can always twist things.

“They will always twist and turn things and the case may take longer than perhaps we may all want it to take. But, that will be left to the court,” Mkhwanazi said.
