“The briefing I got from the Divisional Police Officer (DPO), is that the lady said she dreamt that my son had slapped her.
But I don’t know what later transpired to the extent that she had to stab him to death. The dream however was the beginning of the problem.
My son never told me she was his girlfriend. What my son told me was that the lady is a gospel musician. My son too plays band in our churches. They both have interest in music. I guessed that was what brought them together.”
