A 38-year-old Limpopo man who allegedly murdered his wife the day after she decided to no longer proceed with a domestic violence case against him has abandoned his bail application.

At the time of the murder, Livhuwani Madadzhe was out on R1 000 bail.

He appeared before the Thohoyandou Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday for the murder of 32-year-old Lindelani Nengovhela on 28 January.

Nengovhela’s murder came a day after Madadzhe appeared in court in connection with a domestic violence case she had brought against him.

Limpopo National Prosecuting Authority spokesperson Mashudu Malabi-Dzhangi said Nengovhela had approached the prosecution and the case was disposed of through a mediation process.
