A ballistic expert has testified that the bullet used to kill Senzo Meyiwa was fired from a gun recovered from accused number three, Mthobisi Mncube.
That’s according to Lieutenant Colonel Chris Mangena who was responsible for investigating the Meyiwa murder scene.
The Pretoria High Court has so far heard how two, and not three shots were fired the night the Meyiwa was gunned down.
He says it’s likely that the bullet was fired at a 90-degree angle.
The trial continues in the High Court this morning, with Mangena expected to continue his testimony.
The gun found in an open seal bag at CLEVELAND did match the bullet found at the crime scene, this after the very same had been NEGATIVE in previous tests but all of a sudden it’s now matching 💔💔💔😭😭👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽😭😭💔💔💔#SenzoMeyiwa #SenzoMeyiwaTrial pic.twitter.com/qM6sV6zpvH— DR GLEN (CEO) (@DR_CEO_) August 30, 2023

Mangena says Meyiwa was standing with his back towards the door, which was half open, when he was shot with the shooter in front of him, at close range. He says he can't rule out claims that a scuffle had happened. @eNCA
