Cape Town - A magician and entertainer accused of killing a Khayelitsha woman and burying her body next door to his home has dropped his bail bid, the local magistrate’s court heard on Wednesday.

Monwabisi Mbombo, 23, indicated he would no longer apply for release pending his trial.

He is accused of killing Anelisa Dulase on her 21st birthday, on January 31. She was missing for three months before her corpse was found in May.

The aspiring actress was last seen celebrating at a tavern in Town Two, Khayelitsha.

According to the State, Dulase and Mbombo got into an argument on the night of her party. Witnesses alleged that he assaulted her.

Dulase's body was discovered just before concrete for a planned block of flats was to be poured in Makhaza. Her hands were bound.

Mbombo had gone to primary school with Dulase, her mother Vathiswa previously told News24.

The case was postponed to July 18 for further investigation.
