During the Senzo Meyiwa murder trial, the lead investigator, Sergeant Vusumuzi Mogane, accused the defence of presenting inconsistent versions of the accused’s claims in their cross-examination.
EWN reports that Sergeant Mogane provided testimony on the vehicle tracking records of the car he drove while escorting one of the accused. The defence meticulously examined the data, alleging that Bongani Ntanzi was assaulted during intervals when the vehicle was stationary to coerce him into signing a confession statement. However, Mogane firmly denied these claims.
Ntanzi’s lawyer, advocate Mngomezulu, highlighted a 40-minute interval where the police’s Toyota Fortuner was idling near Ring Road in Alberton, alleging that Ntanzi was taken out of the car and electrocuted during this time. Mogane countered by stating that this contradicted Ntanzi’s initial version, challenging the consistency of the defence’s arguments.
Today, the court will hear additional evidence from a vehicle tracking expert or another investigator.
