Midrand man arrested after ‘attempting’ to use cab to move corpse abandons bail bid

South Africa

A Midrand man who allegedly used an e-hailing app to call for a taxi to ferry a body from his townhouse has abandoned his bail application.

The man is alleged to have wanted to use the taxi to dispose of the body.

Napo Masike, 27, appeared in the Alexandra magistrate’s court on Thursday facing a charge of murder after the death of a woman at his apartment in Midrand in May.

His case was postponed to June 27 for further investigation. The matter was initially set down for a bail hearing on Thursday but it was transferred back to a trial court after Masike abandoned his bail bid.
