Gauteng, April 13 – The case of the nine Daveyton policemen accused of murdering Mozambican national Mido Macia, has been postponed to next month. 

Footage of Macia being dragged through the streets of Daveyton hours before his death in police cells in February, sparked outrage. 

The officers were denied bail last month because the magistrate believed it would be easy for them to interfere with evidence.
