He was handcuffed last week.

Pule was eight months pregnant when she was killed last June and her body found hanging from a tree in Durban Deep.

She was found with multiple stab wounds.

Last week, Muzikayise Malephane, the man accused of killing Pule, entered into a deal with the State and pleaded guilty.

Shoba's case was postponed to 1 March for a formal bail application.

Malephane said Shoba ordered a hit on pule because he did not want his wife to know that she was pregnant.
