Husband killers back in court

2010-12-08 07:44

Pre-sentencing argument was expected to be heard in the South Gauteng High Court in Johannesburg today for the killers of Avhatakali Netshisaulu, the son of former City Press editor Mathatha Tsedu.

Netshisaulu’s widow Mulalo Unity Sivhidzo and her co-accused, Ntambudzeni Matzhenene and Arnold Johannes Sello, were yesterday found guilty of his December 2006 murder.

Sivhidzo conspired with Matzhenene, offering him R4?000 to arrange hitmen, who included Sello, to murder her husband so she could inherit his estate.

Netshisaulu was confronted by a group of men on the Nooitgedacht road in Honeydew. They drove him to a nearby bush where they assaulted him, tied him up and bundled him into the boot of his VW Citi Golf.

They poured petrol over his car and set it alight. His charred body was found after a plot owner alerted police to a car on fire near his home.?
