Paballo Mohale told the Daily Sun newspaper on Thursday that she didn’t know she was pregnant with the late musicians’ child because “I only found out after he had died.”
Habedi, 37, died of a stab wound to the chest on March 9 in his Alexandra home. His girlfriend Sindisiwe Manqele is currently on trial for his murder. She pleaded not guilty.
Asked how sure she was that the child is truly Habedi’s, the 26-year-old answered with a resounding yes, according to the paper.
“We broke up in February last year but we got back together again in October. During that time I was never with anybody else,” she claimed.
She didn’t think it would be a good idea to notify the Habedis of the pregnancy because they were not aware they had been dating for two years.
“I don’t want anything from them (Habedis). I only want them to know that Flabba had another child.”
Habedi family spokesperson Nqaba Xulu said: “It’s a shock to all of us.”
