Durban - Thabani Mzolo, the man accused of gunning down his ex-girlfriend, Zolile Khumalo earlier this year has ditched his legal aid lawyer - one week after his private attorney, Charl Claasen ditched him.
When proceedings began in the Durban High Court on Monday, legal aid lawyer, Amanda Hurley told the court today that Mzolo had told her that his family had arranged a private legal representative and he would not need her services.
Last week, Claasen withdrew his services after not being paid by Mzolo.
Mzolo told the court that his family had already paid for a private advocate from the Estcourt area to represent him during the trial.
But Judge Sharmaine Balton would not hear anything about an application by Mzobe to adjourn the matter.
