A man accused of murder has requested the High Court to order that he should be allowed to visit a library once a week to prepare for his defence.

Matshidiso Boikanyo, the only defendant who was denied bail in a case in which he was accused with three others of stabbing to death a cab driver on September 2013 told Justice Bengbame Sechele yesterday that he needs a library to read and learn about his constitutional rights.

“I ask the court that I be taken to the library at least every Monday or every Wednesday. This would help me better prepare for my defence. I need to understand my constitutional rights. I need to thoroughly understand the Penal Code and case law regarding murder,” he said.
