Johannesburg - The Randburg High Court heard evidence from the state forensic pathologist who conducted the post-mortem on late hip hop star, Nkululeko 'Flabba' Habedi, on Wednesday afternoon.
In a late start to court proceedings today, the prosecution called on Dr Thandi Mahuluhulu to give testimony on the post-mortem she conducted on the Skwatta Kamp rapper.
She says the post-mortem report shows Flabba died of a stab wound to the chest area near the heart, and that the wound is "consistent with considerable force." She could not be drawn on where the accused, Sindi Manqele was standing in relation to the knife at the time.
The Dr confirmed to the court that no other injuries were reported on Flabba's body, and that the rapper had sustained a fractured rib from the cut, which could have been up to 10 cm deep.
The defence claims that Sindi tried to flee during a heated argument with Flabba, and that the rapper chased her around the room with a knife. The team claim she sustained a vertical wound above her belly button during the altercation, and sustained bruises on her fingers from trying to prevent him from assaulting her.
This is a version Dr Thandi Mahuluhulu says is "possible but not probable" to have caused the death wounds.
The rapper was killed on 9 March 2015, after being stabbed his girlfriend, and murder-accused Sindi Manqele.
The trial continues.
