Comedian accused of murder remanded in custody


MURDER-ACCUSED comedian SABC Livhu has abandoned his bail application.

The 38-year-old, whose real name is Livhuwani Madadzhe, appeared briefly in the Thohoyandou Magistrates Court on Tuesday, 31 January for a bail hearing.

He was bust at the weekend for allegedly murdering his wife, Lindelani Nengovhela (32).

NPA spokeswoman Mashudu Malabi-Dzhangi said before the murder, the victim had opened a case of domestic violence against the suspect. He was arrested and later released on R1 000 bail.

Malabi-Dzhangi said on 27 January, the suspect and the victim appeared in the Thohoyandou Magistrates Court for the case and there was a mediation process.
