The accused wants the court to disregard the confession statement he made to police about the January 2018 abduction and killing, saying it was made under duress.

He testified that he did not tell the officer who was taking down his statement about the assault, nor did he tell the one who took him on the “pointing out” exercise.“He is also a cop so I was not sure which cop I could trust. I decided I would address it in court,” he said of the elderly police officer who took his statement.

“There is someone I told though. I told Mr Sibisi, the attorney who was representing me in a lower court. When we went to court, he mentioned it. I think it was during the bail application but the prosecutor dismissed it. Sibisi promised me that this was not the last of the matter and it would come back again at a later stage,” he said.

He claimed he was almost assaulted again by another police officer when he was brought into the Witbank police station. This officer had alleged that he was the one whose picture was circulated in the newspapers.“She wanted to slap me and the officer stopped her, saying there are cameras in this office,” he said. headtopics.com
