Widow tells how she found hubby's body

THE widow of Avhatakali Netshisaulu yesterday described how she discovered her dead husband's body in the boot of his car.

Mulalo Sivhidzo's lawyer Anneline Roestoff, who was leading evidence, asked her what had happened on the night of her husband'smurder.

Sivhidzo said her husband was supposed to meet with her co-accused, Ntambudzeni Mutsenene, in Honeydew on the West Rand to discuss their pay phone business.

She said she received a call from Netshisaulu, who told her he was being followed by two cars without registration plates. She and her brother Awelani Muhanelwa then set out to find him when she received an SMS on her husband's work cellphone from Mutsenene.

The message was: "If you cannot make it today, you can come tomorrow." This SMS made her suspicious.

"I knew that he was in trouble because he had phoned me before," said Sivhidzo.

While on their search, Muhanelwa stopped the car just off Old Pretoria Road and got out. He ran towards a burning car. The Fire Brigade was trying to put out the fire.

"I heard someone respond to something Awelani had said, 'It's a white golf' and I ran over there," said the widow.

On arrival at the scene she asked where the driver of the golf was and one of the firefighters responded: "We did not find a person in there."

On realising that nobody was searching for her husband, Sivhidzo and her brother started searching for him.

"I wanted them to search for him because his car could have caught fire and he could have ran away," said Sivhidzo.

She said someone said something that drew her attention to the boot of the car.

"I then went straight to the car and I could see a burnt human being," she said.

At this stage the court then adjourned.

The trial continues today.
