Mitigation and aggravation of sentence is currently underway in the Western Cape High Court in the case of the man dubbed the cannibal killer. Chimboza could be seen fidgeting with a nervous look on his face as investigating officer Mlungisi Landule gave details of the gruesome crime scene.

Landule was the first police officer to arrive at the Gugulethu house on 10 June 2014.

Testifying in aggravation of sentence, Landule said upon entering one of the bedrooms, Chimboza was eating what appeared to be raw meat while a bloodied knife and fork were on the floor next to him.

He told the court Manona's body was in the same room.

It appeared as if he had cuts to the side of his head and on his chest.

In his plea explanation, Chimboza says he killed Manona after the man attacked him in a jealous rage, accusing him of sleeping with his girlfriend.
