OP: After the bail application, I was in jail. When I came out, I kept a low profile. In fact I did not have my phones as the police had my phones. I had no numbers.
Nel: Did you at any stage ask your brother, sister or uncle as to why your father did not sign regarding his ammunition?
OP: I do not know, my lady.
OP: I remember the police phoning my brother to return the goods that they wanted to remove.
Nel: I am referring to exhibit JJ.
Nel: A 10314. keep on paging.
Nel: You had none of those?
OP: My lady, it asks you to list three.
Nel: And none of those three you had?
OP: That is correct, my lady.
Nel: Let us carry on with the Vaal trip and the discharging of the firearm there.
Nel: You were going to a function with Mr. Fresco and Miss. Taylor at the Vaal.
OP: That is correct, I don't remember it being any function, just a day out with a bunch of friends. a group of about 10 people.
OP: I don't remember if we ate something, I know we went onto that water. We wakeboarded.
Nel: Why did you take your gun to a party?
OP: It wasn't a party and my gun was on me.
Nel: Why did you take it with you?
OP: My gun was on me and I didn't want to leave it in the car. At one point I put it in the towel and then put it back on my person.
OP: I put it in the towel when I jumped into the water.
Nel: You left it in the boat, in a towel, whilst you swam?
OP: There was no-one there, I thought that would handle my firearm. I didn't see it as wrong, my lady.
Nel: It is a funny day today. Any one would see that as wrong to leave you gun unattended on the boat.
Nel: For this instance you would agree that it was wrong?
Nel: I take it when you took a swim, you had shorts on?
OP: I think I had shorts on.
Nel: So your gun was visiable?
OP: The holster has a clip on it.
OP: I cannot remember, it was more than a year ago.
Nel: You see, I want to know. You had shorts on and a shirt?
OP: I don't know if I had a shirt on.
Nel: Okay, you did not have a shirt on, where would your firearm have been?
OP: Consealed in a holster in my person.
Nel: Where on your person?
