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