Last Wednesday he was granted R100 000 bail in Johannesburg.  But the court on Tuesday rejected it. Read story here

An order, signed by the court’s senior registrar’s clerk, Magda Visagie, said his application bore “no prospect of success”.

The Daily News contacted him for comment on Tuesday.  Narandas said he was busy and was not aware of the order. He referred the Daily News to his lawyer, Cliff Alexander.

In 2014, Narandas was found guilty of murder for stabbing Veenand Singh to death outside a Sandton nightclub in 2008.

Last year, he was sentenced to 18 years in prison. This was later reduced to 15.

He sought leave to appeal both his conviction and sentence in the Concourt after the Supreme Court of Appeal refused this earlier this year.

Narandas also often appeared unwell when he appeared in court and on a number of occasions, his counsel put on record that he had health problems.

Singh’s partner at the time of the stabbing, Basantha Sannasy, said on Tuesday she was “ecstatic”. She had been vocal in her calls for justice for Singh over the past eight years.

Sannasy said when Narandas was released last week, she started to lose faith in the judicial system: “But it has now been restored,” she said on Tuesday.

“It doesn’t bring Veenand back but we certainly feel vindicated.”

Sannasy had been in a relationship with Singh for 13 years when he died and described him as her “soulmate”. She was left severely traumatised and she has been in and out of hospital since his death.

“But I hope now, I can put my best foot forward,” she said on Tuesday.

She also said that she hoped this case would give others hope.

Singh’s mother, Ishara was at a loss for words.

“It took a long time, but justice has been served and I’m happy,” she said. “I prayed every day and I knew justice would prevail.”

Ishara said she was still struggling to come to terms with her son’s death.

“I’ve lost other family members but nothing in this world compares to losing your child. And the way in which he went,” her voice trailed off.
