IFP pushes no bail for Zinhle Muthwa's suspected killer

The Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) in KwaZulu-Natal says they will push for the metro policeman who allegedly murdered his ex-girlfriend Zinhle Muthwa, to be denied bail.

Ndumiso Khumalo is alleged to have shot the 29-year-old on New Year’s Eve, before dumping her body at Ndaya Reserve on the KZN South Coast.

Khumalo is a constable with the eThekwini Metro Police Department.

Officials told Muthwa's family who were outside the court that they would be called in for Khumalo's appearance.

However, moments later, court officials emerged and informed the family that the man accused of killing his daughter had already appeared and that his bail application had been moved to Thursday.

The IFP’s Thokozile Gumede says the lack of professionalism is evident. 

"It was very bad what he did, and we are very disappointed by what happened here because we were outside with the police officers and we were never told to go inside the court. When we did go to the court, we were told it was postponed to the 16th," says Gumede.
