The name of the widow of slain cop Major-General Tirhani Maswanganyi, has again been mentioned in the Pretoria North Magistrate’s Court during the bail application of four men accused of murdering the Johannesburg cluster commander.
Roger Moseki, Tshepo Mosai, Daniel Nefolovhodwe and Isaac Vele are facing a Schedule Six murder charge after Maswanganyi’s body was found, with his hands and feet bound, in a stretch of veld along the R101 on June 17.
On Friday Moseki told the court he endured severe torture at the hands of police who forced him to admit that Shereen was involved in her husband’s murder.
“They tubed me with a bucket of water, (near) drowning me with it,” he claimed. “They also severely assaulted me.
“They told me that I should admit to the fact that I was aware that Maswanganyi’s wife had hired us to kill the general but I could not do that because it was not true. I told them I don’t even know who she is.”
“While they were torturing me I nodded my head to get air, I told them a lie that I had stabbed the General (Maswanganyi) but they told me it was bull sh** and continued with the torture.”
Moseki testified that he had made several statements to police which included that Vele and Nefolovhodwe had approached him and Mosai for a firearm, but said that the firearm was never given to them.
Moseki again mentioned two women and claimed he heard from police that they were prostitutes.
“A certain policeman mentioned to me that Maswanganyi was a regular client of one of the woman. I heard that the woman were arrested after myself, and police analysed cellphone records of which the last dialled number was to one of the woman. I heard they were later released,” he said.
The matter was postponed to September 18. - Saturday Star
