Pietermaritzburg High Court Judge Kate Pillay sentenced a 27-year-old man, Mlungisi Ngubane, to life plus 15 years’ imprisonment here yesterday for the "callous and heinous" murder of a 71-year-old woman in the Pietermaritzburg area on August 7 last year.

"This is another statistic in the senseless killings that occur with such regularity in this country … where people show such blatant disregard for the sanctity of human life," Pillay said. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
