Mosia told the court that before he arrived on the scene a meeting was held at the house between senior police generals, government officials and the family.
Among those who allegedly attended that meeting was Maj-Gen Shadrack Sibiya, who was working for the Hawks at that time, and MEC for community safety Sizakele Nkosi-Malobane. Teffo alleged that it was in that meeting that Ndlovu was assigned to “manage” Mosia and the scene.
“I put it to you, the evidence you collected on both occasions were staged. You being oblivious of this tampering of the scene, you did your job. You were oblivious that these things were planted,” Teffo said.
Mosia maintained his version that the scene had not been tampered with when he arrived. He confirmed that there were other officers present but they were never introduced to him.
Teffo further questioned why Ndlovu was the one who “pointed out” items at the crime scene to Mosia while he was not part of the forensics team.
“Ndlovu knows nothing about forensic… He only related the crime scene to me. He pointed out information in the crime scene so that I can take over,” Mosia said.
Meyiwa was killed at Khumalo’s home in Vosloorus, on the East Rand, in an alleged robbery that shocked the nation.
