Four Kranskop killers sentenced

2018-10-10 06:05

The persistence of the SAPS Provincial Task Team detectives to solve a case relating to a murder that was committed in 2015 has led to the successful sentencing of four men.

The investigators sent a well-prepared docket to court to ensure that the perpetrators faced the full might of law.

Their hard work was proven in the Pietermaritzburg High Court when the suspects were sentenced recently following their conviction three weeks ago.

Musa Tilolo Zondi (35) was sentenced to 14 years imprisonment for murder, Thobelani Noh Zondi (33) was sentenced to 18 years for murder, and Mzwandile Chamane (29) and Musa Ruff Khumalo (29) were both sentenced to 22 years imprisonment, each for murder. All four also received 12 years imprisonment each for assault with intent to cause grievous bodily harm and kidnapping.

This sentence emanates from the death of Thandanani Mnomiya (25) who was killed in 2015. His severely battered body was found near the road in Ntunjambili area on the night of February 15, 2015. The deceased was accused of breaking into the family tuckshop where goods were stolen.

He was then questioned and fatally assaulted. A murder case was opened at Kranskop police station and assigned to the Provincial Task Team detectives for further investiga- tion.
