Murder accused Nico Henning has appeared in the Pretoria Regional Court to present sureties towards his R10 million bail.

“He paid R9.7 million in surety and the case was postponed to June 3,” said National Prosecuting Authority spokesperson Medupe Simasiku.

The money came in the form of title deeds for two of Henning’s properties.

Henning (47) paid R300 000 in cash in December towards his bail.

He was to face trial for the murder of his estranged wife, Chanelle Henning.

The 26-year-old was shot dead shortly after dropping off their child at a crèche in Faerie Glen, Pretoria, in November 2011.

Nico Henning’s friend Andre Gouws (49) and former Nigerian athlete, Ambrose Monye, have been convicted for the murder but have yet to be sentenced.

Two other men, Gerhardus “Doepie” du Plessis and Willem “Pike” Pieterse, are serving 18-year prison terms after confessing to their roles in the killing.

As part of his bail conditions, Henning had to report to the Hartbeespoort police station on Mondays and Fridays. He was not allowed within a kilometre of any international point of departure and had to get permission from the investigating officer, Captain Petrus van der Spuy, to approach any of his private planes.

He was not allowed to leave Gauteng and North West without prior approval of the investigating officer.

Henning was prohibited from having any contact with a list of potential witnesses, including Gouws, Monye, numerous Henning family members and employees of Avis car rental.
