A forensic expert, Sergeant Thaba Mosia, told the court that steps had been taken to preserve the crime scene following the murder of the late Bafan goalkeeper Bafan Senzo Meiva.
Mosiah is the first state witness in the Meyiva murder trial and provides details of evidence gathered from the scene in Voslurus east of Johannesburg, where the football star was shot dead in 2014.
The North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria informed Mosia that when he arrived at the scene, which is also the home of singer Kelly Humala’s mother, there were 5 adults and 2 children in the living room.
He explained that he limited the number of people allowed near the scene to protect it, and studied the forensic examination and the physical evidence that was found there.
Cross-examination by the defense has begun.
