The Western Cape High Court heard the testimonies of Keenan Thomas and Lance Govender, who were the first to arrive at the scene at Diep River railway station.
Thomas identified Rob Packham at a photo identity parade at the Hout Bay police station.
He pointed him out again in court as the man he saw that night. He said that on the night in question Packham wasn’t wearing spectacles.
Thomas and Govender were at Thomas’s home in Diep River that night, where they had been playing games on a laptop from around 8pm.
