Johannesburg – The Randburg High Court heard evidence from state witnesses, including paramedics and Flabba’s mom, in the murder trial of late hip hop star, Nkululeko 'Flabba' Habedi on Friday morning.
Flabba's mother, Agatha Habedi, took to the stand and gave testimony about her son's relationship with the accused, Sindi Manqele.
Agatha told the court that she knew that her son was in a serious relationship with Sindi, but did not know much of how the couple had met.
She revealed that Flabba had sent her a whatsapp conversation two months before his death, where Sindi accused him of cheating. She read these in court.
"I don't even know why I trusted your cheating ass anyway, you cheated on Lesego's mom with me. You make me sick. I really hope those whores make you happy, have fun telling your daughter that you cheated. I'm going for a blood test tomorrow morning. You better pray you didn't give me anything," the texts read.
She says the argument caused her major concern and she told her son "not to kill her." She tried to intervene but the argument was soon resolved.
"'I cannot find the words to describe the effect my son's death had on our family," Agatha told the court.
Her testimony was followed by the testimony of two emergency service officers who treated Flabba on the night of his death.
Both witnesses testified that they arrived to find Sindi over Flabba's body, crying for him to be saved and trying to administer CPR. They checked for a pulse and declared him dead on arrival.
The rapper was killed on 9 March 2015, after being stabbed in the chest by his girlfriend, and murder-accused Sindi Manqele.
The trial continues on Monday.
