Johannesburg - The cross examination of former Jozi FM DJ Donald Sebolai is expected to conclude at the High Court sitting in Palm Ridge on Wednesday.

During his last appearance on Monday, prosecutor Elize le Roux said she needed a short while longer for her cross-examination of the murder-accused DJ. 

She has spent several days scrutinising Sebolai's version of how his girlfriend Dolly Tshabalala died after she suffered a stab wound to her pubic and thigh area during a fight between the couple in June last year.

Sebolai on Monday told the court that he cleaned the floor of his flat of Tshabalala's blood while she lay dying in his bedroom. 

He claimed he had no foresight that a person could die from a wound to the pubic area and thigh. 

Sebolai has denied killing Tshabalala, telling the court he would never kill a person he loved. 

His testimony has painted their relationship as a troubled one, marred by high alcohol consumption, sexual escapades between himself, Tshabalala and her best friend and physical abuse fueled by Tshabalala's jealous nature. 

Sebolai has apologised to Tshabalala's family who regularily attend proceedings, occupying the third of the court gallery. 

They have rejected his apology.
