Johannesburg- The murder trial of late hip hop superstar, Flabba Habedi, has been postponed until the 23rd of November for closing arguments in the case.

The decision was made by the judge, who was hearing the case at the Randburg Magistrate's Court in Johannesburg on Friday.

The trial resumed for the first time in nearly a month on Friday where the defence called on a doctor to give testimony.

The doctor told the court that he had examined murder accused Sindiwe Manqele twice after her arrest, where he noted a limp and 1.5cm wound on her abdomen.

He further added that the wounds were consistent with the events described in Sindi's testimony but, under cross-examination, admitted that he could not determine when the wounds were sustained or even that the wounds may have come from the bottle she used to slit her wrists.

The defence next called on Laticia Vena, an admin clerk at Alex clinic, who confirmed that medical records for Sindi had been opened after she came to the clinic for treatment, but that the file had gone missing, even though medical files do not often go missing from the clinic.

Sindiwe Manqele has had her bail extended until court proceedings commence in November.
