Johannesburg - Tempers flared at the High Court sittingin Palm Ridge on Thursday during the trial of former Jozi FM DJ DonaldSebolai.

Relatives of Sebolai's slain girlfriend, DollyTshabalala, were disappointed and

angry as they had expected the court to passsentence on the convicted murderer today.

Instead, after hearing from Sebolai's social worker,Siphumelele Mbatha, the matter was postponed to February 18 to allow thedefence and prosecution teams to prepare for their sentencing arguments.

"They should just release him and allow him to gohome since it seems like they don't want to put him behind bars," one ofTshabalala's relatives shouted while Judge Cassim Moosa was still on thebench.

"They are wasting our time. Do they know how much itcosts for us to come here every day?" another shouted.

"Release him," they said.

The family had filled up the front rows of the courtgallery, with some wearing T-shirts depicting Sebolai's late lover.

She was found lying in a pool of blood at his home inJune 2014. She had a single stab wound to the pelvic area. The wound hadsevered an artery and she bled to death.

Sebolai was found guilty of her murder, but maintainedthat he did not kill her.

He insisted that she stabbed herself as the two of themwrestled over a knife which she had used to stab him in the fingers, afteraccusing him of cheating.

The pair had just returned home from a night of drinkingwhen the incident happened.

Sebolai told the court that Tshabalala was a lovingwoman, but would become enraged with jealousy, especially when she consumedalcohol.

A loving father

Meanwhile, Sebolai's case was dealt a blow on Thursdaywhen Mbatha told the court that he lacked remorse.

The first step to rehabilitation was acceptingresponsibility and Sebolai had failed to do this, she said.

She said that Sebolai had failed to acknowledge that heplayed a role in Tshabalala's death and had instead implied that his only faultwas failing to rush her to a hospital, which was just 900m from hishouse.

Instead, he cleaned up the blood on the floor and tookoff. He was arrested after an intensive nine-day manhunt.

Mbatha told the court that she had consulted with two ofthe three women who had children with him.

The women had painted him as a loving father who wasproud and supportive of his children.

They had never suffered abuse at Sebolai's hands.

One of them said she was "shocked" to hear ofSebolai's arrest because violence was not in his nature.

Mbatha said it was possible, however, that the womencould have been trying to protect him.

On Wednesday, Sebolai broke down in the dock, statingthat he did not know who would fend for his children and those of his latesister.

But Mbatha, who had been appointed by Sebolai's counsel,said the mothers of Sebolai's children were all employed and could afford tofend for their children. His sister's children could apply for social grantsand his parents could also get pension grants.

She called for the court to not be swayed by Sebolai'scircumstances.

The matter continues next Thursday.
