The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA)is happy with the Johannesburg High Court ruling to deny musician Pitch Black Afro bail. He is on trial for the alleged murder of his wife, Catherine Modisane.
Briefly.co.za previously reported that the rapper was charged with premeditated murder after his wife's death on New Year's Eve. His bail application was denied because the magistrate, Paul du Plessis, said that his case presented no exceptional circumstances for bail to be granted.
According to TimesLIVE, the NPA spokesperson, Phindi Louw-Mjonondwane, said that they were happy with the decision to keep the accused behind bars. He is believed to have attempted to interfere with the investigation in previous circumstances. He also provided the state with the wrong home address, thus affecting his credibility.
The trial date will be set on 12 April.
