KILLER COP CLAIMS HE ACTED IN SELF DEFENCE
In a bid to save his skin, the suspect killer cop, in his bail application, submitted that he was acting in self-defence when the incident happened.
Sibusiso Shongwe through his lawyer Machawe Dlamini submitted that on Boxing Day, he was with the deceased and she asked him to fix speakers to her car radio and they had agreed that he would drive her car to her parental home at Boyane, where she would find it after knocking off at work the next day.He stated in his affidavit that before he left her rented flat, they had an argument over money owned to him by his deceased lover and in the process she got angry and pushed him against a sofa and fell.
“Whilst on the ground, I saw her grab a sharp object, which I could not lucidly recognise and I grabbed her by the neck trying to defend myself, she then fell on the ground and I ran outside and when she woke up she locked the door as she thought I was going to come back in,” Shongwe submitted.
The suspect killer cop claimed they then spoke through the window and he, thereafter, left for Manzini claiming she left her alive.
He further submitted that he later learnt from the local print media that he was wanted in connection with the death of her girlfriend, who was found dead in her rented flat, hence he asked his brother Zombodze Emuva Member of Parliament Musa Kunene to surrender him to the police.
