Brothers Ned and Dylan Govender have been denied bail at the Verulam Magistrate’s Court in connection with a murder that was committed during July’s civil unrest. The duo is accused of killing Mondli Majola in Phoenix.

Over 30 people are believed to have died in the area. They are facing charges of murder and attempted murder after a group of Phoenix residents allegedly attacked five unarmed men.

In handing down judgment for bail, Magistrate Irfaam Khalil said that the inaccuracies in the affidavits of the accused and the video that was shown in court of the crime, calls into question the credibility of the accused.

Khalil says there was damning evidence in the video compared to their version of events under oath.
