Key witness finished testifying despite intimidation tactics at the murder case of Nosiphiwo James

A key witness in the murder case of Nosiphiwo James finished with his testimony at the Khayelitsha Regional Court today despite receiving numerous violent threats. Action Society wishes to commend his bravery as he refused to be bullied and silenced by intimidation tactics and gave the court his version of the events. The case has been postponed to 3 July 2024 for further trial.

Today the witness was questioned on the version of the events that he provided the court with last week. He maintains that he saw the suspect stabbing Nosiphiwo twice with a knife outside a tavern, and that he was stabbed in the back when he tried to intervene.

“Today Action Society showed that we refuse to allow intimidation tactics to silence us, and we believe that with this witness’ testimony we are one step closer in getting justice for Nosiphiwo James,” said Head of Action Society’s Action Centre in the Western Cape Kaylynn Palm.
