The following evening, did you give the deceased some of these sleeping tablets? // That is so. // How did you do this? // It was in their coffee that I offered them. I put an overdose of the tablets in the coffee and I gave it to them to drink. // Did you collect branches and tree trunks? // Yes that is correct. // You and Mr. Van Rensburg, or was it you and Mr. Van Rensburg who carried them out? // Mr. Van Rensburg and I carried them out. // Did you then shoot Siphiwo Mtimkulu? // Yes, that is correct. // And the warrant officer for Topsy Madaka? // Yes, that is correct. // Van Rensburg shot the one person and you shot the other. // That is so your honour. // We placed them on the fire wood. We first put down a layer of fire wood and then we put the corpses on top of the fire wood. // During the course of the evening, on several occasions, you had to keep the fire going and put on more wood.
