Johannesburg - Former Jozi FM DJ Donald Sebolai was on Monday found guilty of the murder of his girlfriend Dolly Tshabalala.

He was also found guilty of obstructing justice but was acquitted of the charge of theft.

Earlier, Tshabalala’s relatives wept silently in the High Court in Palm Ridge as the DJ's judgment was delivered.

Tshabalala's mother was among other relatives who sat in the third row of the packed court gallery, blowing her nose as she was comforted by another woman next to her.

The family listened as Judge Cassim Moosa went through the evidence presented to the court during the trial.

Sebolai faced three counts, namely murder, theft of Tshabalala's vehicle and defeating the ends of justice.
