Update on Viana Family Murder Trial

The killers of the Viana family in South Africa were due to be sentenced yesterday (6th September),  however,  Vereeniging Regional Court have postponed sentencing procedures after two of the accused told the Court they want to change their legal counsel. The three accused earlier pleaded guilty to all charges, however, they are expected to change their guilty plea. They will return to Court on September 20th. Will justice be done in this case, and, if so, will it happen any time soon?
