Soweto – The Protea Magistrate's Court in Soweto will on Monday hear the bail application of Alek Magaula MaMothame and Sandile Nkosi, the two men accused of killing Bongeka Phungula and Popi Qwabe.

The women were found dumped in Naledi and Tladi in Soweto in May after they were shot and killed.

The two men, aged 43 and 25 respectively, are appearing on charges of murder, robbery, and kidnapping.

They were arrested on May 21, and kept in custody after appearing before Magistrate Baden Horst on June 2.
