State witness, sergeant Thabo Mosia is expected to continue giving evidence. Mosia, a forensic field worker collected evidence at the crime scene where Meyiwa was shot.
Meyiwa was shot at the house of the mother of his singer girlfriend, Kelly Khumalo in Vosloorus, East of Johannesburg in 2014.
On Monday, advocate Malesela Teffo for accused number three, threatened taking the correctional services to court.
This was over the alleged assault and ill-treatment of Mthobisi Mncube who was transferred from the Johannesburg prison to the Kgosi Mampuru Maximum facility in Pretoria.
This despite a correctional service official telling the court that this was within their act to keep him there.
Meanwhile, Correctional Services doctors say they did not find any physical injuries on accused number 3 in the Senzo Meyiwa murder trial.
Mncube and four others have been charged with the premeditated murder of Meyiwa.
Giving the court feedback on the matter, prosecutor, advocate George Baloyi told the court an investigation on the matter is ongoing.
“The doctors report indicated there are no physical injuries. The head of the Correctional Services contacted the station commander of the central police station to dispatch SAPS officials to afford Mr Mncube the opportunity to open a case as requested and indeed a case was opened, there’s also an investigating officer allocated to the matter. There’s also an internal investigation that is ongoing and has not been finalised yet.”
