Cop in Pitch Black case tells of record

Pretoria News - - METRO - | Bongani Nkosi

THE Yeoville-based cop ac­cused by Pitch Black Afro – born Thulani Ng­cobo – of co­erc­ing him to con­fess has sought to con­vince court that the fa­mous rap­per man­u­fac­tured ev­i­dence in­di­cat­ing that they were un­fa­mil­iar to each other.

Sergeant Lufhuno Brian Sono told the Gaut­eng High Court, Joburg, yes­ter­day that he too was well­known, and Ng­cobo al­ready knew him when they in­ter­acted at the Yeoville po­lice sta­tion on Jan­uary 10 last year.

As part of his ev­i­dence in the trial-within-trial in­tended to de­ter­mine the ad­mis­si­bil­ity of his con­fes­sion in­di­cat­ing that he killed his wife Cathrin Modis­ane at a Yeoville bed and break­fast on De­cem­ber 31, 2018, Ng­cobo re­called Sono as the burly of­fi­cer who boasted to him about his in­volve­ment in the Rhodes Park mur­der-by-drown­ing and rape case. Sono was cred­ited for crack­ing the case en­tailed drown­ing to death of two men and rape of their wives in 2016.

The case con­tin­ues.
