Sindisiwe Manqele claims that she killed her lover hip hop super star Nkululeko ‘Flabba” Habedi in self defence, reports eNCA.
She was applying for bail in the Gauteng magistrate court.
Her lawyer presented the court with a medical sheet showing that Manqele has sustained tissue injuries at the night Flabba died.
She argued that Manqele should be released on bail because she will not cause any public disorder.
Manqele was arrested last week Monday at the late rapper’s house in Alexander, she was charged with his murder after police found that she stabbed the “boom fatsi” rapper fatally in the heart during an alleged lover’s tiff.
Police said they were called to Habedi’s Alexandra home at 4am, where the 38-year-old musician was killed.
Family spokesman Tshepang Habedi said his brother was stabbed once in the heart.
On Monday, curious onlookers watched as media set-up cameras on the pavement in the middle of the busy morning commute outside the court.
This was in contrast to the scene outside the court following Manqele’s first appearance last Monday, the same day Habedi was killed and she was arrested.
At the time, local residents clashed with a group of women and a man, understood to be Manqele’s relatives. The two groups traded insults, and the residents insisted Manqele should not be granted bail.
