Henning murder accused cases postponed

Pretoria - The cases against two of the men accused of murdering Chanelle Henning were postponed by the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on Thursday.

A bail application by Ambrose Monye, a former Nigerian athlete, was postponed until 15 May.

The bail application had been set down for three days from 24 April, but could not be heard because the magistrate was sick. It was reportedly postponed again on 26 April as no courtroom was available.

The case against Monye's co-accused Andre Gouws was also postponed until 15 May.

He was not in court on Thursday because he was in hospital being operated on for a finger infection, the court heard.

Henning was killed last year in a drive-by shooting.

She had just dropped off her child at a nursery school in Faerie Glen, east of Pretoria.

    This is one of the most important problems with our legal system - the absolute inability to handle and finalise cases within a reasonable time.

      Well, that and the corruption, and the two-tier system, and the pathetic sentencing, and ludicrously low bail. Otherwise though, it's great.

    Monye Ambrose should not get BAIL at all. He is the Nigerian married to a SAPS woman. And he connected to crime ! Where does she fit in. And please don't remove my post like you did last time.
