30-year-old Zwelibanzi Kidwell Zungu has been charged with muder even though Nandi Mbizane is still missing.

 The ex-boyfriend of a missing woman was charged with murder when he appeared in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.

Captain Pinky Tsinyane said Zwelibanzi Kidwell Zungu, 30, had been wanted by the police in connection with the disappearance of Nandi Mbizane, 27.

He surrendered to the Hawks at the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on Tuesday in the presence of his lawyer.

The police and Crime Line had released Zungu's picture to the media earlier in an attempt to find him.

Mbizane went missing last month from her home in Centurion, Pretoria. She was last seen in the company of her ex-boyfriend Zungu and her current boyfriend.

Police have offered a reward of R50 000 for information on her whereabouts. - Sapa
