Njabulo Jali had fled to KwaZulu-Natal where he was convicted and sentenced on Monday.

Njabulo Jali was convicted of killing a 23-year-old man in a tavern.

In 2013 he murdered the 23 year-old man and three others.

Both murders took place in Meadowlands, Soweto.

"The [tavern owner] was shot following a case of business robbery at his tavern at Meadowlands Zone in the early hours, at about 12.30am the same day he was killed," said police spokesperson Sibusiso Chauke.

"He was robbed of an undisclosed amount of cash, cigarettes, liquor and airtime."

Jali also robbed a security guard of his firearm, using his own to do so, at a supermarket in Orlando West  last year.

Chauke said Jali, following the tavern owner's murder, fled to KwaZulu-Natal where he was convicted and sentenced on Monday.
