Guesthouse owner Andre Slade locked eyes with an unarmed burglar he had shot in the head moments earlier.
As the man gasped for air, Slade was confident that he had rid the world of a “problem”.
The Sunday Times can exclusively reveal that apart from the Equality Court charges Slade faces for a racist rant last year, he is being investigated for the murder of 26-year-old Siyabonga Nsele, his neighbour in Mbazwana, northern KwaZulu-Natal.
This week Slade claimed that Nsele had been running away, clutching a bag of stolen groceries. He fired a shot that hit Nsele behind the ear. Nsele died soon afterwards in a nearby clinic.
“He fell like a bag of potatoes. The bullet severed his spinal cord,” Slade said.
“His eyes could see me because he was still alive. His brain was still operating, but he couldn’t blink his eyes because he’d lost muscle control.
He said the killing could be justified by the Bible.
