Ju­bi­la­tion as court finds ex-lover guilty of stu­dent’s mur­der

Pretoria News - - METRO -

THERE was ju­bi­la­tion in the Durban High Court after Tha­bani Mzolo was found guilty of the mur­der of Man­go­suthu Univer­sity of Tech­nol­ogy stu­dent Zo­lile Khu­malo, pic­tured.

Judge Nom­pumelelo Radebe found that the State had proved be­yond rea­son­able doubt that Mzolo shot and killed Khu­malo. The court re­jected his ev­i­dence that Khu­malo had shot her­self dur­ing a scuf­fle over the gun.

Radebe also re­jected Mzolo’s ev­i­dence as un­truth­ful and called him “bla­tant liar”.

Radebe said the ter­mi­na­tion of the love re­la­tion­ship was not ac­cepted by Mzolo and he sub­se­quently took a de­ci­sion to kill her.

Khu­malo was shot three times. The bul­lets to the chest landed the fa­tal blow. | Sne Masuku
