Johannesburg - The bail applications of two of the men accused of murdering Chanelle Henning will be heard by the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.

The application by Ambrose Monye, a former Nigerian athlete, had been scheduled for April 26, but was postponed as no courtroom was available.

Monye's co-accused Andre Gouws’s lawyer could not make his previous court date because he was having an operation on his finger.

Monye, Gouws and their co-accused Preshan Singh last appeared in court together at the end of March.

Two other accused, Willem Pieterse and Gerhardus du Plessis, are already serving 18-year jail sentences for their roles in the murder.

Henning was killed last year in a drive-by shooting.

She had just dropped off her child at a nursery school in Faerie Glen, east of Pretoria. - Sapa
