Birthday celebrations were underway and Zulu had sent beers to their table, in the company of another man. Moremane explained that her party, including three accused who also admitted to being sex workers, had joined the two men at the bar, explaining that she had told Zulu it was her birthday.
When the party drew to a close, Zulu had allegedly suggested that they ‘finish off’ the celebrations at his home. At Zulu’s home, Moremane claimed that she had ‘entertained the deceased sexually’, also alleging that she suspected drug use but had not witnessed the Prince taking illicit substances.
The mother of two minor children intends to plead not guilty, strongly believing that the court would agree with her claim of innocence, reports eNCA.
TimesLIVE reports that the court had earlier heard that the accused formed part of a syndicate that allegedly drugged and then robbed victims.

During bail applications, the suspects called for their release, adamant that they pose no flight risk with the matter since being postponed to next week. The suspects have asked to be released, as they say, they don’t pose a flight risk.
