THE two men linked to the murder case of an Umzimkhulu couple, abandoned bail after appearing for the second time in the Umzimkhulu Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday.
Andani Monco (30) and Kwanele Ndlwana (22) did not give reasons as to why they chose not to apply for bail.
When they arrived in court, the accused hid their faces from the media photographers. Both wore sandals, long trousers and jackets. They refused to be represented by the state or a private attorney but magistrate Essack Riazz advised them to reconsider their decision, saying they face a serious case.
When the accused made their first appearance on March 5, the community of Umzimkhulu packed the gallery and others stood outside the court and waited for the outcome. The case was postponed to March 23.
