Also present on that fateful night were Matata’s landlord pensioners who have earlier on granted an interview to The Voice.

“Your worship we are yet to interview the key witness who has been transferred to Gantsi and we have not found perfect time to go and interview him.

The court appearance was brief since the presiding magistrate was on sick leave and another magistrate, Ike Raphael, handled the matter.

However, when the 42 –year- old Scotch was given an opportunity to say something he said he will wait to speak before the substantive Magistrate in two weeks’ time.

Scotch allegedly killed Matata who also hails from Gulubane village in the North East District after she had dumped him and moved out to rent a house in Gabane. She was buried to rest two weeks ago in Gulubane.
