Two pathologists gave evidence in the Johannesburg Magistrate’s Court in the case against Riaz Kadwa, accused of shooting his parents, police said on Monday.

Superintendent Chris Wilken said the two were giving evidence in the case against Kadwa, his wife and his sister.

“One of the pathologists has yet to be questioned by the defence advocate, Michael Hellens,” said Wilken.

Kadwa had been charged with two counts of murder while his wife Nabeela (22) and his sister Nabila (18) were charged with defeating the ends of justice and being accessories in the murder.

Kadwa is accused of murdering his father, Mohamed Anwar Kadwa, a 50-year-old plastic surgeon, and his mother Muneira (49), in their Mayfair home on October 5 last year.

At the time 23-year-old university dropout claimed that two armed men had entered the house and shot them.

The two parents were said to have been experiencing marital problems.

Wilken said the three accused showed “no expression” during court proceedings.

“The court was very quiet, you could hear every breath being taken,” he said.

Mohamed was shot six or seven times while his wife had been shot in the face and stomach.—Sapa
