The singer told the court while testifying that she made an attempt to call the police but she forgot the number and failed to call police. Zandie said, “I do remember that I said it, I did not say it for the first time in court. I have no control over what a police officer writes or considers important,”
The defense lawyer also questioned the singer about her statement as it does not correlate with her then-boyfriend Longwe Twala where he wrote in a message sent to Twala 2 that Senzo Meyiwa was shot in front of them. Nxumalo told Zandie, “He is suggesting he was there. But you said Longwe ran out,” Therefore, Zandie replied, “He will come here to tell the court. I can’t speak on his behalf. Call Longwe. I am here for myself, not Longwe.” Things become tense when advocate Nxumalo asked the singer to keep her short and direct. Then Zandie said, “Please watch your tone when you speak to me. I am not your wife. I am someone else’s wife.”
