    ‘Come August 2024, he would have reached the minimum detention period, then the (parole) board will make a decision,’ jail representative Singabakho Nxumalo informed a media instruction.

    ‘He will need to appear once again next year. And then we check out the profile and decide in regards to his positioning.
