Murder accused, Patrick Chirunga, has been denied bail by Gaborone High Court Judge, Justice Singh Walia.

Chirunga is accused of murdering University of Botswana professor Richard Sehurutshe early this year. Sehurutshe’s body was found dumped in Molepolole, while his car missing. Chirunga is alleged to have abducted the deceased at his Phase Two home some time before he was found dead. Chirunga also faces two counts of vehicle theft.

Justice Walia said the state had proved on a balance of probabilities that the accused is capable of fleeing if granted bail.
