Alleged gang trial adjourned

-File

There has been another adjournment by the Pietermaritzburg High Court for the trial of alleged members of the notorious “Williams’ gang” that held a reign of terror in Oak Park and surrounding suburbs.
Accused Derrick Williams and Sibongiseni Mariken will return to court on June 14 for a trial date to be set.
Previously the matter was adjourned for the State to make certain documentation and particulars available to the defence.
Both Williams and Mariken face 14 charges in total, including five charges of attempted murder of police officers. The duo is accused of shooting the team of police officers, eluding arrest and two charges of murder.
The State believes that the Williams brothers, Lwazi Xulu and Mariken, hijacked a Toyota double cab vehicle valued at R119 000 on Town Bush Road, Montrose, on April 26, 2016.
On April 30, 2016, a shoot-out with police occurred when the gang attempted to steal a silver Peugot in Town Hill, where Derrick’s brother, Ian Williams, believed to be a ring leader, was killed in the shoot-out.
