Praise for SAPS sergeant

SERGEANT SG Magubane of the Alexandra Police Station was praised in the Pietermaritzburg Magistrates court last Wednesday for the professionalism he showed in handling a murder investigation which led to Sibusiso Mchunu being handed a sentence of 15 years imprisonment for murder.

Mchunu was sentenced to 15 years imprisonment after he murdered his friend in Slangspruit in 2016 follwing an incident where he was confronted for stealing his friend’s property, leading to an argument.

After the argument, a few days later, Mchunu approached the friend at his residence and stabbed him in the head, fleeing the scene thereafter. A man hunt by the Alexandra Police officers then ensued, leading them to capture Mchunu in KwaDambuza.

The magistrate giving judgement over the case on Wednesday commended Magubane for the overwhelming evidence he presented before the court which led to a successful conviction of Mchunu.

“Magubane showed professionalism and commitment in the way he conducted the investigation, ensuring that the evidence needed by the court was available,” said the magistrate.
