Johannesburg - The case of a 30-year-old police constable who was arrested for allegedly murdering a woman on New Year's eve was postponed in the Mthatha Magistrate's Court, the Hawks said on Monday.

Constable Lusindiso Any Mnukwa would appear on 9 February for his bail application, said police spokesperson Hangwani Mulaudzi.

The man was arrested in Mthatha on Friday in connection with the murder of the 23-year-old woman.

The officer was allegedly having an affair with the woman's mother and then she told her father about the affair.

"The father confronted the wife who in turn informed the constable and an assassin was hired to eliminate the deceased," Mulaudzi said.

The woman was shot and killed in the afternoon of 31 December.

"On Friday, the organised crime unit team... arrested the alleged hitman who spilled the beans on the alleged involvement of the constable."

The alleged assassin was found in possession of an unlicensed firearm and had been linked to another murder in Ngqeleni.
