Police said that they were searching the crime lord, feared on the streets of Cape Town’s notorious Cape Flats suburb, when a strap-on dildo fell off his body.
Murphy tried to bribe the police by offering them 9,100 rand ($1300) not to search him during the raid.
Fat Murphy told the court he was a hermaphrodite who went under two names Fadwaan and Hilary. “I had a vagina that could not be penetrated. But I also had male organs, testes. But I always knew I was really a man and that was what I wanted to be.”
“God created me with both sexual organs. It was God’s decision, not mine,” he added.
Police has found no records of his sex change surgery.
Murphy has been released on 300 rand ($43) bail.
