The cases against two of the men accused of murdering Chanelle Henning were postponed by the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on Thursday.

A bail application by Ambrose Monye, a former Nigerian athlete, was postponed until May 15.

The bail application had been set down for three days from April 24, but could not be heard because the magistrate was sick. It was reportedly postponed again on April 26 as no courtroom was available.

The case against Monye's co-accused Andre Gouws was also postponed until May 15.

He was not in court on Thursday because he was in hospital being operated on for a finger infection, the court heard.

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
