Pretoria - Murder accused André Gouws pointed out the place where Chanelle Henning should be killed, the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria heard on Tuesday.

"We followed [Gouws] on his blue BMW scrambler motorbike to Garsfontein," convicted murderer Willem Pieterse testified.

"We drove to Garsfontein, where Chanelle was shot."

Pieterse was testifying in the murder trial of former Nigerian Olympic athlete Ambrose Monye and Gouws.

He said Gouws pointed out two places with his hand. They also stopped at the school where she worked.

Afterwards, he received a piece of paper with Henning's details, including her vehicle registration and colour.

Parents in court

Pieterse was asked whether he had met Henning prior to her murder.

"No, at that stage we didn't even know it was a woman that must be shot."

Henning's parents Sharon and Ivan Saincic were in court. Her mother cried when Pieterse said he had never met her daughter.

The 26-year-old woman was shot dead while driving her car in Faerie Glen, Pretoria East, on 8 November 2011, shortly after dropping off her child at a crèche.

Pieterse and Gerhardus du Plessis claimed Monye hired them to carry out the shooting and promised them R10 000 each.

Both accepted a plea bargain and were convicted in December last year of murder, possession of an unlicensed firearm, and possession of unlicensed ammunition.

They were each sentenced to 18 years in prison.

Pleaded not guilty


Gouws and Monye have pleaded not guilty to murder, conspiracy to murder, conspiracy to procure an illegal firearm and ammunition, possession of an illegal firearm and illegal possession of ammunition.

Earlier, Pieterse was asked why he killed Henning.

"It was an instruction we got from Ambrose," he answered.

He said he met Monye at a Romans Pizza in Sunnyside and was given R600 to buy a firearm.

However, he used the money to buy drugs. He later obtained a chrome-plated, snub-nose .38 Special from Preshan Singh.

Singh was sentenced in July to five years' imprisonment, suspended for five years, for providing the firearm used in the crime.
