Speaking to Xolani Gwala, EWN reporter Robinson Nqola says Mangena was granted R50 000 bail and the NPA said they didn't oppose the bail as Mangena was cooperating.

They felt that he was co-operating with the law enforcement officials and they didn't feel like he was a flight risk.

He adds that Mangena's co-accused didn't apply for bail and it is not clear whether they will apply for bail at a later stage.
