Two of the three siblings, accused of a series of murders, including that of two South African Municipal Workers’ Union (Samwu) leaders in Limpopo, are expected to apply for bail in the Thohoyandou Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday.

Simon and Ndivhuwo Radzuma, who had previously abandoned their bail application, have now opted to proceed with the application.

The third sibling Percy was denied bail on two occasions.

Simon and Ndivhuwo will make their application for bail for the first time since their arrest three years ago.

Their brother Percy is also intending to make a third application for bail based on new facts in a date still to be confirmed.

The late Samwu leaders, Timson Musetsho and Ronald Mani, were against the district municipality’s decision to invest R300 million in the now defunct VBS Mutual Bank.

The accused will be tried in the Thohoyandou High Court in October.
