Johannesburg - Dolly Tshabalala, the murdered girlfriend of radio presenter Donald Sebolai, suffered serious stab wounds on her genitals, the Protea Magistrate's Court heard on Wednesday.

"She was stabbed in her private parts. I attended when the post mortem report was presented," investigating officer Constable Oupa Khubeka said at Sebolai's bail application.

"The stab wounds start from the genitals to the right thigh, these were deep wounds that showed the amount of violence that took place."

Magistrate Herman Badenhorst read an excerpt from the post mortem report.

"It says here, three penetrating wounds on the middle line, deep and extends into the root of the right thigh... penetrating wounds to the pubis," Badenhorst said.

Sebolai allegedly stabbed Tshabalala in his flat on 29 June.

The State is opposing bail.

Khubeka said: "He is facing a very serious charge, and the amount of violence exerted on the deceased was horrendous."

He said Sebolai was arrested on 8 July in Dube, Soweto after being on the run for nine days.

Police flagged down a vehicle Sebolai was travelling in with his brother-in-law.

An informant tipped off police about his whereabouts soon after a R50 000 reward for his arrest was announced.

The two were headed to Pretoria, after which Sebolai would skip the country into Botswana, he said.

Sebolai does not have a passport.

Sebolai's lawyer Malise Rambelani argued his client was not on the run but was on his way to hand himself over to the police on the day he was arrested.

"He also packed clothes because he knew he would need clothes for his appearance in court," said Rambelani.
