JOHANNESBURG - The state has enough evidence to prove Nkululeko Habedi's girlfriend acted unlawfully on the morning she stabbed him to death, the National Prosecuting Authority said on Monday.

Sindisiwe Manqele was granted R10,000 bail in the Alexandra Magistrates Court this afternoon.

The 26-year-old Ireland-based student said she acted in self-defence, claiming the rapper, best known as 'Flabba', brutally attacked her at his home last Monday.

NPA spokesperson Velekhaya Mgobhozi is adamant the state has a strong case.

He also welcomed the magistrate's decision to grant Manqele bail.

"The NPA is not disappointed. The NPA welcomes the decision. Bail is not punishment, there's still a trial ahead."

Mgobhozi says the issue now is whether she will be able to answer questions about her actions on the morning of 9 March.

Manqele has to report to the Midrand police station twice a week.

She will return to court on 13 May.

Habedi was laid to rest at the weekend.
