Victim's mother will 'never forgive' DJ Sebolai
An emotional Elizabeth Marawa told the court Sebolai did not show any remorse for killing her daughter.
JOHANNESBURG - As convicted murderer Donald Sebolai prepares to spend the festive season behind bars, the mother of his slain girlfriend said she will never forgive him.
Last month, the former radio presenter, popularly known as Donald Duck, was convicted of stabbing Dolly Tshabalala to death in her flat in Soweto last June.
Pre-sentencing proceedings commenced in the Palm Ridge Magistrates Court yesterday.
Speaking through his advocate Sebolai apologised to Tshabalala's family, saying he didn't mean to cause them pain.
But an emotional Elizabeth Marawa told the court Sebolai did not show any remorse for killing her daughter, saying if he wanted to apologise, he should have done so while he was out on bail.
Marawa, who spoke through an interpreter, said her daughter's death has taken an enormous toll on her and she often has nightmares.
"I'm asking this court to conclude this matter because my daughter died and Donald is still alive, enjoying his life."
The court was filled to capacity with Tshabalala's relatives and friends, many calling on the court to impose the harshest sentence on the former DJ.
Marawa told the court she now attended counselling on a monthly basis.
"I miss and want to talk to my daughter. I go to the graveyard to speak to her, but he's still alive. Every time I come to this court, I get even more upset."
Pre-sentencing proceedings have been postponed until February next year.
