Murder accused and controversial IT consultant Muzi Kunene does not know the whereabouts of the original of a "conspiracy" affidavit by dead policeman Superintendent Zethembe Chonco, the Bloemfontein high court heard.
The 31-page document allegedly implicates the Presidency, the National Intelligence Agency, the national police commissioner's office, and Chonco in a conspiracy against Kunene.
The conspiracy was apparently to ensure Kunene did not become a threat to national security in relation to the ANC hoax e-mail case.
Kunene, 45, of Ballito, Mumukeleni Khoza, 26, and Mphakamiseni Khumalo, 21, both of Msinga near Greytown, are accused of kidnapping and murdering estate agent Lynne Hume of Ballito, KwaZulu-Natal, in October 2007.
Chonco, who was stationed at the Kranskop police station in KwaZulu-Natal, was killed in a taxi violence-related incident in the province last year.
Kunene's lawyer, Jan Nkhahle, handed in a copy of the affidavit at the trial on Tuesday.
According to Kunene, the original was probably sent to the commissioner of police in Pretoria.
He told the court yesterday that he had read the document after receiving it, but that the alleged plot against him was not news to him.
He said he had already told the authorities when he appeared in the Kestell magistrate's court in June last year that there was a conspiracy against him.
The state alleges that Hume, 47, was driven to a dirt road near Kestell in the Free State and shot dead in the passenger seat of her white Volvo on October 23, 2007.
The vehicle was then set alight. Chonco said in his affidavit that he was assigned the "completion and detail" of a plan to kill Hume.
The case continues. - Sapa
