A woman arrested for brutally murdering her husband in Ledig near Rustenburg, will remain in custody.
The state has vowed to oppose bail for Nancy Majohni (42) who appeared before Mogwase Magistrate's Court on Thursday where her bail application was postponed to 9 September.
Majonhi, a Zimbabwean national, was arrested last month after confessing to her family and the in-laws that she assaulted her husband Prosper Chipungare (44) with a hammer until he fainted before dismembering his body with a spade and throwing his body parts in different pit latrines in 2015. Six years later Majonhi returned to South Africa - after fleeing to Zimbabwe - confessed to the murder and pointed the police to the toilets where she dumped her husband's remains.
Back in 2015 after committing the gruesome crime, Majonhi went to Sun City Police station and reported her husband missing.
Police have since managed to retrieve the skull and bones which will be subjected to DNA tests.
North West National Prosecuting Authority spokesperson, Henry Mamothame, said the state would argue that the accused remain behind bars.
