Flabba's killer in appeal bid

Convicted murderer Sindisiwe Manqele is expected in the Palm Ridge High Court on Tuesday to apply for leave to appeal her conviction and 12-year sentence for stabbing to death Nkululeko "Flabba" Habedi.

Manqele stabbed Habedi in the chest in March 2015 at his Alexandra home after the two were involved in a heated argument.

The row was over Habedi's ex-girlfriend, Kea, who had reportedly danced seductively in front of him at a Sandton nightclub just hours before the confrontation.

Manqele pleaded not guilty to the murder charge, saying she had acted in self defence after Habedi had pinned her down, rubbed his saliva over her face and poked at her stomach with a knife while accusing her of seeking men who could better provide for her financially.

During the trial, under a pressing cross-examination by Prosecutor Paul Schutte, Manqele buckled under pressure and told the court that she had intentionally stabbed the hip hop musician.
