I was listening to Radio 702 on the morning of the 5th of March on the way to a meeting, and I was astounded with the defending Advocate of the court case of the decade, while gruelling not the defendant but an innocent witness by his own admission stated that there had been female and male screams coming from the house of the defendant, but yet on Monday the first day of the trial while grueling the first witness (the current witness’s wife) he asked her repeatedly if it where female screams she heard, which she confirmed over and over again and the advocate went on to say that his client the defendant a 27 year old male screamed like a woman when anxious, so how could she be sure.
Now Wednesday, the advocate by his own admission stated that there where now definite female and male screams, yet on Monday there where not different gender screams coming from the house of the defendant, as she would have been unable to scream after being shot as she would have been to hurt. Something here does not add up, she was not shot by a machine gun, but by a hand gun and in three different parts of her body, and she would not scream in agony when being hit in the arm or leg before the final blow to the head, somebody really needs to explain this.
The question that is still I feel is still unanswered is surely after the first gunshot there was a definite scream from the female/victim that they had been hit, as the defending advocate says there were three female screams and one male scream. After you have been hit by a reasonable size caliber bullet, and the speculation is as to whether the defendant did not know by her first scream that he had hit the love of his life in either the arm, leg or head as there were three bullet wounds, is bizarre… but he proceeded to continue shooting her making sure it was good and properly done, as we must not forget the saying... dead men tell no lies…if it were simply an attempt on victim’s life the legal system would have had the defendant locked away by now as the truth would have been told, I believe off the bat by the victim if she were still alive.
Now the cricket bat… when hitting a ball bowled at speeds reaching 140km/ph. by professional bowlers at Jacques Kallis certainly one of our country’s top batsman of all time certainly does not sound like a gunshot going off; Can you imagine the spectators would be continually ducking for cover, come on does he assume we are all that stupid.
If you do woodwork you would know that when you use a wooden mallet to hit a piece of wood in or out of place you make very little noise firstly and secondly you must not cause any major damage to the actual wood. Let me tell you that if this a solid wooden meranti door being broken down by a cricket bat that is quite long in length 965mm to be exact and 108mm wide and typically weighs from 1.2 to 1.4 kilograms (2pounds 7ounces to 3pounds) which being swung around a door frame which is plus minus 830mm wide it is highly unlikely you would be able to break it down as only a small section of the bat would be making contact with the door, due the size of the bat versus the inner size of the frame, especially to top it all especially by a man who is not one hundred percent balanced on his feet, and to cap it all that there is a good chance the bat would break or at least crack at the handle. I am just over six foot and weigh almost 110 kilograms and I recently had to resort to using a 1.814 kilograms (4 pounds) short handled hammer to knock a hole into a locked hollow core door, and I am know weakling so I am told and guess what I alarmed nobody. My neighbor heard my alarm and he does not even live fifty meters away, did nothing, and his home is less than a third of the meterage of the defendant’s neighbor. But a 9mm gunshot can be heard up to three kilometers away, especially in the still quite air, to claim this confusion between a gun shot and the sound of a cricket bat breaking down a door is plain ludicrous.
I have covered many stories late at night with the political violence in the townships during the early 1990’s and I know the sound of a hand gun and rifle being fired.
I am speculating not stating that the defendant then called his contact who is an expert in the area of security; and explains what he has done and is possibly is advised on what to do next… hence the sounds of the cricket bat connecting with the door that where never actually heard or recorded by anybody.
