The bail application for the former MEC for Agriculture and Land Reform, Mandla Msibi, and his two co-accused is expected to resume at the Nelspruit Magistrates Court on Thursday morning.

Msibi and the two accused are facing two charges of murder and one attempted murder which they allegedly committed in August in Mbombela.

The court adjourned the bail application on Wednesday after a bomb scare at the court premises.
