Johannesburg – Sentencing of former Jozi FM DJ Donald Sebolai for the murder of his girlfriend Dolly Tshabalala was expected to begin in the Palm Ridge Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.

Sebolai was also found guilty of obstructing justice.

Tshabalala was found dead in Sebolai’s bed in June last year. She had a single stab wound to the pelvic area, which severed a main artery. She bled to death.

Finding him guilty in October last year, Judge Cassim Moosa said after seeing Tshabalala bleeding profusely, Sebolai tended to his own wound and failed to take her to the hospital, only 900m from his Soweto flat.

Following the judgment, Moosa revoked Sebolai’s bail after the State argued that he was a flight risk.

He had been on the run for nine days after the murder.
