2010-11-29 14:49

Mulalo Sivhidzo pointed out the man she suspected of killing her accountant husband, Avhatakali Netshisaulu, Judge Naren Pandya said in the High Court in Johannesburg today.

“She told the police she suspect accused 1 [Ntabudzeni Matzhenene],” Pandya said reading his judgment.

Matzhenene then led police to accused 2, Arnold Sello.

After both made statements to the police, Sivhidzo was arrested.

Netshisaulu was the son of former City Press editor Mathatha Tsedu. The couple had been married for seven months.

His charred body was found in his burnt car in 2006, after he went to meet Matzhenene at a filling station in Zandspruit near Honeydew. The two were apparently setting up a payphone business in the area.

Pandya said robbery was not the motive, as the car was set alight.

Sivhidzo, Matzhenene and Sello have pleaded not guilty to murder, robbery and kidnapping.
