Durban - A man who allegedly shot dead a colleague at the King Edward VIII Hospital in Durban has launched a second bid for bail in the city's magistrate's court.

The court was told on Monday that he abandoned an earlier bail application in June, but wished to bring a new bail application.

Khulekani Aubrey Ntuli, 43, allegedly killed Sipho Mfayela, 54, on 28 February after he was told the results of a misconduct disciplinary hearing appeal.

As Ntuli's lawyer, George Pooran advised Magistrate Vanitha Armu that his client was again seeking bail, a woman in the public gallery began crying loudly and had to be escorted from the court room.

He was arrested in Hillbrow, Johannesburg, in May, after nearly three months on the run.

He faces charges of murder, pointing a firearm, and possession of an unlicensed firearm and ammunition.

The matter was postponed to 14 August.
