Masava from Ward 21 in Zaka was found dead with his body badly bruised near his homestead on June 13 2008.
The 13 appeared before Zaka resident magistrate Godfrey Gogo on Friday.
They were further remanded out of custody to March 29. Their lawyer Martin Mureri of Matutu, Kwirira and Associates said his clients’ trial failed to commence despite the fact that they had been coming to court since 2008.
Mureri said he had applied for refusal for further remand. “My clients have been religiously attending court since 2008 but their trial is failing to take off,” said Mureri.
