Johannesburg - "I have lost my husband. I am not prepared to lose you too..."

These were the words that Dolly Tshabalala allegedly shouted at Donald Sebolai, the man now accused of murdering her, hours before she died.

Sebolai told the High Court in Johannesburg, sitting in Palm Ridge, that Tshabalala said this during a heated argument at his flat in Soweto.

The former Jozi FM DJ told the court that he and Tshabalala had arrived at home in the early hours of the morning following a night of drinking at several places around Soweto with Sebolai's colleague and sister.

The couple dropped Sebolai's colleague and sister off at their homes and then became embroiled in a heavy argument.

The confrontation was sparked by Tshabalala's demand to go through Sebolai's phone, accusing him of cheating.

"I then changed the subject as I was talking to her. I said 'Dolly you remember that I told you that during the school holidays I have an appointment with my first born child'. The schools had closed on the 27th," Sebolai said.

He claimed to have told Tshabalala to give him space for three weeks so he could spend time with his child.

"She asked whether I was fetching the child alone or with the mother as well. She said 'who knows, perhaps you are fetching the mother of the child too... Perhaps you want to make another baby'," Sebolai said.

"She was speaking loudly and you could tell she was angry. That is why I avoided going to her in the bedroom and I sat on the couch. She then stormed out of the room and stood at the door of the lounge.

"She said she had lost her husband and she was not prepared to lose me also," Sebolai, who has three children with three different women, told the court.

Tshabalala also had a daughter. It was understood that during her relationship with Sebolai, she had been estranged from her husband. They had a daughter together.

Tshabalala was found dead in a pool of blood in Sebolai's bed in June last year. She had stab wounds to her thighs and vagina.

Sebolai was arrested and charged with her murder several days after going on the run.

The former DJ has pleaded not guilty to the murder charge.

The trial continues.
