2011-12-20 09:22
Johannesburg - One of the men found guilty of murdering lesbian Zoliswa Nkonyana is unsuitable for correctional supervision, the Khayelitsha Regional Court heard on Monday, SABC news reported.

Correctional services social worker Mbulelo Mfanekiso told the Cape Town court that Sicelo Mase would face another murder charge at the same court in January next year.

Mfanekiso was testifying during sentencing procedures for Mase, Lubabalo Ntlabathi, Luyanda Londzi and Mbulelo Damba.

In November they were found guilty of stoning and stabbing Nkonyana to death in February 2006. She was 19-years-old.

Mfanekiso said correctional supervision could only be granted if a felon did not have any cases pending.

Sentencing proceedings would continue on Tuesday.
