Godfrey Macheke, who allegedly axed his wife to death, was denied bail in the Pretoria North regional court yesterday.

Magistrate Joel Scherman denied Macheke bail on the grounds that he might commit suicide and was a flight risk.

Outside the court protesters chanted "no bail for Macheke". Some displayed placards reading "To hell with Macheke", "Let him rot in jail" and "Bring back the death penalty".

Macheke will appear in court again on April 3. - Sapa
