Johannesburg - The three men accused of killing an ANC branch leader are due to apply for bail in the Durban Magistrate's Court on Friday.

Bongukwanda Excellent Gasa, Sipho Innocent Sikhakhane, and Skhulu Phiwayinkosi Gasa appeared in the same court last Thursday.

Defence lawyer Laurens de Klerk had asked for a postponement for the men's residential addresses to be verified, before bringing an application for bail.

They are accused of killing Sithembiso Ngidi, an executive member of the ward 75 Jacobs area branch.

Ngidi was shot dead on 23 June after taking part in a door-to-door election campaign in Lamontville, south of Durban.

The trio were arrested on 2 July and face murder charges.
