Andile was murdered in May for allegedly stealing alcohol at a tavern in Hambanathi.

His body was founded dumped in the Wewe River weeks after he'd been reported missing.

The Verulam Magistrate's Court delivered the bail decision on Wednesday after several postponements brought on by some court officials contracting the coronavirus.

"The court refused bail for all of the accused. The matter has been postponed to 17 August for further investigations," says NPA KZN spokesperson Natasha Kara.
