Johannesburg - Gasps and murmurs were heard in court when former gospel DJ Donald Sebolai on Friday said he had a threesome with his late girlfriend, Dolly Tshabalala and her best friend, Nonhlanhla Nhlapo. 

Sebolai told the High Court, sitting in Palm Ridge, that Tshabalala had suggested the sexual escapade. 

"Dolly suggested that we have sex with each other. I agreed because I did not want to hurt her feelings because she and Nonhlanhla were best friends who grew up together," Sebolai told the court. 

He was on trial for the murder of Tshabalala, who was found lying in a bed at his flat in June last year. The bed was soaked with her blood. She had stab wounds from her thighs to her private parts. 

"The first time [the threesome] happened  at Dolly's mother's house," Tshabalala said, giving the address to the court. 

Tshabalala's mother, sitting at the back of the court, gasped. 

"It happened at the garage of the house and Dolly's mother was in the house," said Sebolai. 

"Dolly was wearing a denim dress on that day and Nonhlanhla was wearing a camouflage pants and a camouflage t-shirt," Sebolai said. 

He said they had sex on two further occasions at his flat, where Dolly was later found murdered.

"It would just be the three of us when this happened. Dolly had no problem with it because after all, she was the one who came up with this idea," Sebolai said. 

Jealous

But the sexual escapades soon caused problems between the couple when Tshabalala became jealous of her friend, Sebolai said. 

"We were at Devland at Nonhlanhla's parental home... It was the birthday of one of the children at the house. While we were drinking, I asked if we were not going to have sexual intercourse as we normally do since it was Saturday," Sebolai said.

"It had become our habit that when Dolly and Nonhlanhla were together, we would have sexual intercourse together."

Sebolai said Tshabalala told him she would consult Nhlapo about the idea and she agreed that it would happen later that night. 

As it got late, Sebolai suggested that they all leave so they could drop off Tshabalala's child at her mother's home before they had sex. 

He said Tshabalala became agitated. 

"[She] later said to me, 'why does it seem like you want my friend more than you want me'," Sebolai said. This sparked a row, resulting in Sebolai saying that the threesome would never be repeated. 

He told the court that he asked Tshabalala to take him home and she had obliged.

On the way, however, Sebolai alleged that Tshabalala insulted and slapped him repeatedly in the presence of Nhlapho.

He eventually asked to be let out of the car. He got out, leaving Tshabalala to do a u-turn back to Nhlapo's house.

Smacked him

He walked to a nearby filling station where he bumped into Nhlapo's brother-in-law who insisted that he go back and speak to his girlfriend as it were late and he was far away from home. 

Sebolai alleged that Tshabalala was shocked to see him return. 

She again smacked him around and asked him why he had come back. 

Sebolai said he done nothing in return and Nhlapo's mother had eventually reprimanded her. 

Nhlapo was called to testify as a State witness and denied ever having sex with Tshabalala and Sebolai. 

As Sebolai testified on Friday, he portrayed himself as a boyfriend who was usually victimised by Tshabalala. 

He told the court of several instances when he had been assaulted by Tshabalala in public. 

The former DJ, who is facing a murder charge, said they often patched things up because of "love."

Friday was his second day on the stand but Sebolai had not yet told the court what happened on the day Tshabalala was murdered. 

He is expected back on the stand on Tuesday. He is currently out on bail of R10 000.
