Johannesburg – Former DJ Donald Sebolai, who is accused of killing his girlfriend, is expected to continue testifying in his trial on Friday. 

This after his testimony, which was due to continue on Thursday, was delayed.

It had been love at first sight and he thought his fights with Rachel Dolly Tshabalala were a normal part of a relationship, he told the High Court in Johannesburg sitting in Palm Ridge on Wednesday.

He is accused of stabbing Tshabalala in his flat in Jabulani, Soweto, on June 29, 2014. The Jozi FM DJ was arrested in Dube on July 8 after being on the run.

Investigating officer, Constable Oupa Khubeka, told the court during Sebolai’s bail application last year that Tshabalala’s wounds were horrific.

"She was stabbed in her private parts. The stab wounds start from the genitals to the right thigh. These were deep wounds that showed the amount of violence that took place."

He is out on R10 000 bail.
