Cape Town - “This is the exact replica of my daughter; the eyes are just like hers.”
Bonita Lewis, mother of murdered Nikita Lewis, could barely hold back her emotions while looking at sketches done by her daughter’s killer, Nikita’s ex-boyfriend Lloyd Simbarashe.
Bonita was testifying in sentencing proceedings at the Western Cape High Court on Wednesday.
She was handed a small booklet made by Simbarashe titled 'Nobody knows my feelings' on the front page, with a sketch of Nikita on the inside pages next to the words of the Whitney Houston song I Will Always Love You.
Defence advocate Sheriff Mohamed said Simbarashe prayed daily for the Lewis family while in prison.
