Kunene's lawyer accuses son

2009-02-18 00:00

BLOEMFONTEIN - Msebenzi Kunene (25), the son of Muzi Kunene, the first accused in the Lynne Hume murder case, was yesterday accused by his father's lawyer of trying to minimise his role in the murder.

"You are giving yourself a driver's role only, because you want to minimise your part," advocate Jan Nkhahle said to Muzi Kunene.

"No, that's not right," he replied.

On Monday, Kunene testified that he drove his father's BMW with Hume in the back from Ballito to Kestell in the Free State, where he heard shots and found her car on fire with her in the front seat.

It was only about a month after Hume's death on October 23, 2007, that he reported the incident. On November 21, 2007, his father shot him, and then he went to the police about Hume's murder.

He denied that he conspired with other people to get his father in trouble.
