Johannesburg - The alleged kingpin behind a plot to
overthrow Democratic Republic of Congo President Joseph Kabila has appeared in
Pretoria Magistrate's Court, Business Day reported on Tuesday.
Etienne Kabila Taratibu appeared in court on Monday and
would remain in custody.
National Prosecuting Authority spokesperson Medupe Simasiku
said the charges that would be brought against Kabila Taratibu were outlined
during Monday's proceedings.
He would appear in the court again on Thursday, along with
19 other Congolese co-accused. They were expected to apply for bail.
Simasiku said the prosecution would oppose bail.
Last Thursday, at the group's first appearance, prosecutor
Shaun Abrahams said the police who arrested them recovered a "wish
list" for military training and equipment.
Abrahams said undercover law enforcement officers first met
Kabila Taratibu in October, where he confirmed that he planned to overthrow the
Agence France-Presse reported on Sunday that Kabila Taratibu
claimed to be president Kabila's half-brother.
