A DURBAN Metro cop charged with the murder of his girlfriend made his first appearance in the Durban Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday.

The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) confirmed the appearance of Sizwe Clinton Ngema.

NPA spokesperson Natasha Kara said Ngema faces charges of murder and theft.

“The matter was adjourned to April 9 for bail consideration,” said Kara.

Police in KwaZulu-Natal said the 27-year-old man is accused of stabbing his girlfriend at a flat in Joseph Ntuli Street in the early hours of Sunday morning.

“It is reported that the couple was drinking alcohol when the man allegedly stabbed the woman to death,” said KZN police spokesperson Colonel Robert Netshiunda.

Netshiunda said it is further alleged that the suspect took videos and pictures of the woman’s last breath and sent them to several people, as well posting them on social media.

“Although the abuse of liquor and other substances could be attributed to the suspect’s actions, it is not yet clear what could have led to the stabbing,” said Netshiunda.
