The local who allegedly killed a man in self defence on Friday, will remain in police custody until at least Monday.

Gavin Wingrave (51), a well-known ballroom dancing instructor in the Lowveld, appeared in White River Magistrate’s Court yesterday.
He was travelling on a dirt road in the Rocky Drift area when a rock hit his vehicle, explained Albert Gryvenstein, operational manager of Bossies Community Justice.
“He stopped to take a look at the damage when he was allegedly attacked by the very same man who had purportedly thrown the rock. A scuffle ensued during which he allegedly stabbed the attacker in the chest with a knife.”
Wingrave phoned Gryvenstein, who contacted emergency services and the police.
The man, who has not been identified, reportedly died moments after medical services arrived at the scene.
Wingrave was accompanied to White River Police Station by SAPS members.
Spokesman, Sgt Cynthia Mbokodo said the case was postponed for further investigation. His formal bail application is expected to be heard on August 21.
