Cop tells Meyiwa trial of Sibiya ‘admission’ after arrest

A new witness in the Senzo Meyiwa murder trial on Monday told the Pretoria High Court of an alleged admission made by accused number two, Muzi Sibiya.

State witness Sergeant Batho Mogola took to the stand on Monday morning to testify on the arrest of Sibiya in May 2020.


Mogola was one of three police officers who arrested Sibiya in Tembisa.


She told the court that the alleged admission took place outside the Vusumuzi Hostel in Tembisa shortly after his arrest. 


“I then, my lord, asked him about his involvement in the murder of Senzo Robert Meyiwa.”  


“Is it correct that he made a report to you?” probed state prosecutor Advocate George Baloyi.

“My lord, when he responded to the question which I posed to him, I could see that he was making admissions,” said Mogola. 


The trial-within-a-trial continued on Monday.


The defence is arguing against the admissibility of the alleged confessions made by Sibiya and accused number one Bongani Ntanzi. 


Evidence before the court suggests that the pair made confessions in regard to Meyiwa's murder.


It has further been alleged in court that Sibiya also did a “pointing out” of the murder scene where Meyiwa was killed in October 2014.
