The Nelspruit Magistrate’s Court in Mpumalanga is expected to deliver judgment on the bail application of one of the three men accused of killing Hillary Gardee.

Hillary is the daughter of the former Secretary-General of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), Godrich Gardee.

Sipho Mkhatshwa is facing charges of kidnapping, murder, rape, defeating the ends of justice, and conspiracy to commit murder.

He is charged along with Philemon Lukhele and Mduduzi Gama. Lukhele and Gama have separately applied to be released on bail.

The accused were arrested after Gardee’s body was found in a timber plantation a few kilometres outside Mbombela in May.

During cross-examination, Sipho Mkhatshwa told the court that he was never in Mbombela when the alleged crime happened.
