Clinical psychologist argues Flabba's killer suffers from anxiety

Sentencing procedures are underway for the girlfriend of slain rapper Nkululeko 'Flabba' Habedi at the High Court sitting in Palm Ridge.

Sindisiwe Manqele was found guilty of killing Habedi in December last year.

EWN's Masego Rahlaga says that the defense brought in a clinical psychologist as well as a correctional services official to argue for mitigation of sentence for Manqele.

The clinical psychologist has taken the stand and said Manqele is a very anxious person, with the signs of anxiety - but not enough to be diagnosed with mental instability.
