Advocate Malesela Teffo tells South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) in an interview that his withdrawal from Senzo Meyiwa’s case was fake so he could distract his enemies. He is the legal representation for four of the five men who are charged with killing Senzo – Muzikawukhulelwa Sibiya, Bongani Sandiso Ntanzi, Mthobisi Prince Mncube, Mthokoziseni Maphisa and Sifisokuhle Ntuli.
Video footage from when she did her interview on SABC show has gone viral on Twitter with people reconsidering what they had originally thought about his action. This is a strategic move, said Malesela to SABC during their ITS TROPICAL broadcast when asked about his motives for withdrawing at this time. Sometimes you have to mislead your opponents and make them feel overjoyed for too long.
