Former KZN cop jailed for life
Johannesburg - A former police officer has been jailed for life by the Mtunzini High Court for killing two colleagues and a boy, KwaZulu-Natal police said on Wednesday.
The court sentenced Judea Ntuli, 28, on Tuesday, Lieutenant Colonel Vincent Mdunge said.
Ntuli was a member of the public order police unit in Ulundi. He went on a shooting spree in May 2009, killing three people.
"They were attending a crime awareness campaign at a park in Ulundi when he shot them," Mdunge said.
Detective Constable Zephania Ntshayintshayi and Lieutenant Colonel Bongi Masemola were killed.
Ntuli then ran to the Gqokamandla High School after killing the officers, where he robbed a security guard of his firearm.
"He then got into the classroom, dragged 13-year-old pupil Senzo Vilakazi out and shot him dead."
The motive for the crime was not known. Ntuli turned the gun on himself later in the day in his apartment in an attempt to commit suicide.
