The five men charged with murdering Bafana Bafana captain Senzo Meyiwa will return to the Gauteng High Court in Pretoria on Thursday.

Muzikawukhulelwa S'Tembu Sibiya, Bongani Sandiso Ntanzi, Mthobisi Prince Mncube, Mthokoziseni Ziphozonke Maphisa, and Fisokuhle Ntuli are on trial for the murder.

Police sergeant Thabo Mosia, who spent most of his evidence-in-chief testifying about the evidence he collected on the murder scene and how he collected it, was cross-examined by advocate Malesela Teffo on Tuesday morning. Teffo is representing four of the accused, including alleged triggerman Mncube.

Mosia, the first forensic detective who arrived on the crime scene, only got there four hours after the soccer player was shot.

But said he didn't think the crime scene had been tampered with. Mosia said he thought the people in the house were focused on saving Meyiwa.

Teffo also revealed in court that the DNA found on a hat allegedly belonging to the person who had pulled the trigger was that of a woman.

This allegation and others were made during Mosia's cross-examination.

The matter is expected to continue on Thursday.
