Bredasdorp - An investigating officer in the rape and murder case of Anene Booysen has testified that the man Booysen fingered before she died was known as Zwaai, the SABC reported on Wednesday.

Doleen Olivier was testifying in the bail application of Jonathan Davids, one of the accused, whose nickname was Zwaai and whose family name was Teikentakke.

Davids on Tuesday said his arrest was a case of mistaken identity.

Olivier has also testified that before she died Anene said that between five and six men had raped her.

So far police have only arrested Davids and his co-accused, Johannes Kana.
