CAPE TOWN - The mother of a slain Philippi baby says she wants answers from the alleged killer.

Andisiwe Mnyani today came face to face with the man accused of killing her seven-month-old baby last month.

Her ex-boyfriend, Zukile Nakuphi, appeared in the Athlone Magistrates Court on charges of murder and intimidation.

A distraught Mnyani kept asking "Why?" as she was led out of a packed courtroom today by family members.

Mnyani's aunt, Gloria Funani says they want answers from him.

"We've got so many questions, of which we can't ask, it will be better if he can tell us why he did it in the first place."

Nakuphi is being accused of killing seven-month old baby Inganathi Mnyani in a fit of rage during a domestic dispute at his home last month.

He abandoned his bail application today.
