    SENZO MEYIWA MURDER TRIAL, SOME STATE WITNESSES UNDER PROTECTION

    Senzo Meyiwa witnesses

    In preparation for the Senzo Meyiwa trial, the Pretoria High Court heard on Monday how some State witnesses were placed under witness protection.

    On Monday, lawyers for one of the defendants accused the state of suppressing important witness statements until the last possible moment.
    The trial was originally scheduled to begin on Monday, but was postponed until Tuesday morning to allow the defense counsel to speak with the accused.

    Nearly eight years ago, the Bafana Bafana captain was assassinated at the home of his girlfriend, singer Kelly Khumalo.

    Sifisokuhle Ntuli’s counsel, Advocate Zandile Mshololo, told the court on Monday that the State had violated his constitutional right to a fair trial by disclosing key documents barely two weeks before the case commenced.

    “In another way, accused number five has been ambushed by the conduct of the State to reveal such crucial statements at the eleventh hour of the trial,” Mshololo said.

    But State lawyer, Advocate George Baloyi, insisted that it was necessary: “The reason why we didn’t release the statements prior was because we needed to place those who were going to testify under witness protection.”

    It is still not clear who the State’s first witness will be on Tuesday morning as the trial finally commences.
