PRETORIA- On Monday morning, a different investigator in the murder trial for Senzo Meyiwa will testify before the Pretoria High Court.
Before continuing with the cross-examination of one of the arresting officers, the case was put on hold on Friday because the defense demanded a report from an expert in vehicle tracking.
Two of the five accused are being tried in court to determine whether their confessions are admissible.
The men were allegedly assaulted and forced to make the damaging statements, according to the defense.

In response to challenging questions from the defense regarding Bongani Ntanzi’s arrest and how he was escorted, Sergeant Vusumuzi Mogane has been on the witness stand for more than two weeks.
The defense is requesting precise GPS coordinates on the escort that was transporting the accused, so even though this testimony is the longest in this trial within a trial, it has been put on hold indefinitely.
Sergeant Batho Mogola, a fellow investigator from the cold cases unit, will testify on Monday in the interim.
She was crucial to the investigation and oversaw the arrest of Muzikawukhulelwa Sibiya, the first suspect.
It is obvious that Mogola was the right-hand woman of brigadier Bongani Gininda, the main investigator in this case, based on the testimony provided and the accused’s accounts.
