A 42-year-old Zimbabwean woman who killed her husband and dumped his remains in three pit latrines has been certified medically unfit to stand trial by South African doctors.

Nancy Majonhi has missed court proceedings more than three times due to deteriorating health.

She was supposed to stand trial at the Mogwase Magistrates Court in North West province.

The provincial spokesperson for the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA), Mr Henry Mamothame said the case was yesterday postponed to November 9 for further medical attention and further mental evaluation.

“A medical report from a hospital in which Majonhi is admitted was submitted in court today. It confirmed that owing to her ill-health, she is not fit to attend court,” said Mr Mamothame.

“In relation to her mental evaluation, the medical report indicates her reluctance to eat and take prescribed medication as a concerning factor.

She will remain in hospital under severe observation in an effort to improve on her health and mental status before her next court appearance”.
