Johannesburg- Proceedings in the murder trial of rapper Nkululeko 'Flabba' Habedi are set to get underway in the Randburg Magistrates Court this morning. 

Sindisiwe Manqele has been standing trial for the killing of Flabba, who was stabbed during an argument between them on 9 March in Alexandra, Johannesburg.

Sindi has pleaded not guilty to charges of murder, and claimed during her testimony that the rapper was killed in self-defence. 

Over the past two months the court has heard testimonies from witnesses, which included Flabba's mom, brother, police officers and Sindi. 

The court has heard details of the events which led up to the rapper's death. 

During Sindi's emotionally charged testimony, she told the court that she acted out of fear for her life. 

"He was coming for me. I was terrified. I thought if I could hurt him somewhere and distract him, then I could run. I pushed him and stabbed him with the knife," she said in court.
