Flabba murder accused Manqele granted bail

Sindisiwe Manqele, accused of killing hip-hop star Nkululeko Habedi, also known as Flabba, was granted R10 000 bail in the Alexandra Magistrate’s Court in Johannesburg on Monday.

Magistrate Gideon Schnetler said Manqele would have to comply with several conditions as part of her bail.

These included reporting to the Midrand police station every Wednesday and Friday, and informing the investigating officer if she left Gauteng.

The matter was then postponed to May 13 for further investigation.

Habedi, a member of hip hop group Skwatta Kamp, was stabbed to death at his home early last Monday morning, allegedly by Manqele, his girlfriend.

Police said they were called to Habedi’s Alexandra home at 4am, where the 38-year-old musician was killed.

Her lawyer submitted an affidavit on her behalf saying it was self-defence. – Sapa
