The case against Luyanda Botha, the man accused of the rape and murder of Uyinene Mrwetyana, will be transferred to the Western Cape High Court.

He's facing two counts of rape, one of murder and a charge of defeating the ends of justice.
The former postal worker appeared in the Wynberg Magistrate's Court where he was heckled by members of the public, reports EWN's Lizell Persens.
