Durban - The man allegedly found in possession of a cellphone belonging to kidnapped businesswoman Sandra Moonsamy was granted bail in the Durban Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday.
Jerry Ogbuwany Gike, 35, was arrested in the first week of July and was found to be living in the country illegally for the past 10 years.
He claimed that his application for a residence permit was pending since he made it in 2011.
Moonsamy, a Westville mother of two, was kidnapped on Stapleton Road in Pinetown, on May 30, and has been missing since.
Prosecutor Sureka Mariemuthoo told the court that the State did not oppose bail and that Gike had lived at the same address in Musgrave, Durban, for many years.
