NPA to oppose Dr Nandipha and co-accused bail

According to SowetanLIVE, the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) said it would oppose bail for Dr Nandipha and her co-accused. However, the state said it would only reveal its reasons when the accused appeared in court.

Dr Nandipha's father, Zolile Sekeleni, on the other hand, was granted R10 000 bail. Free State NPA spokesperson Phaladi Shuping said the state did not oppose Sekeleni's bail because of the elderly man's poor health.

@nkulikankuli said:

"No bail, she's already proven she's a flight risk."

Sandy Marsh Roman added:

"By law, they are entitled to apply for bail, but I hope they don't get it."

@ZahZah23522795 warned:

"They better not make that mistake, we know how she operates. The state cannot afford another 1,4mil to get her back in the country. No bail."

Mello Wa Pta commented:

"In this case, the application for bail will be a tick list in the constitution to say the court complied; but the granting of bail to Magudumana will be like attempting to walk to Europe on foot and be there in 20 minutes!"

@quartermutton criticised:

"Watch how they actually legitimately get bail in this circus we call a justice system."

Ying Yang demanded:

"She should be denied bail, she might compromise lots of evidence forthcoming, and she must remain in custody."
