The State previously indicated that it will not use the recording and has since made a U-turn as it wants the recording to be submitted as evidence in the trial-within-a-trial which looks into the admissibility of the confessions made by accused 1 Muzikawukhulelwa Sibiya and Bongani Ntanzi. Advocate Zandile Mshololo also submitted that Cronje should have explained Ntanzi’s constitutional rights, told him that she will be recording the confession and that it may be used against him.
