Cape Town - The bail application of a Zimbabwean man who admitted in his statement to the police to tearing out the heart of his client's lover and eating it, continues in the Athlone Magistrate's Court on Thursday.

Andrew Chimboza, 35, testified on Wednesday that he killed Mbuyiselo Manona, 62, in self-defence at his client's home in Gugulethu last month.

Chimboza runs a window-tinting business and visited a client's home on the evening of 10 June after she asked him to check up on the windows he tinted for her in 2009.

He earlier testified that Manona, who lived with the woman, head-butted him when he came out the bathroom and he defended himself in a shocked state with a cutlery knife he found on the floor.

 Prosecutor Quawnita Geyer read back a portion of his statement during cross-examination.

"In your warning statement you say... 'I sit up on him and stabbed him on the chest, tore out his heart and took a knife and then sliced his heart and then I ate his heart' [sic]," Geyer said.

Chimboza has been charged with stabbing Manona to death.

He asked the court to grant him bail, saying he was a well-liked businessman and had to look after his sick partner in hospital. He suffered from tuberculosis and needed to continue taking medication.

Chimboza moved from Zimbabwe to Cape Town in 2009.
