SUNDUMBILI SAPS communications officer, Captain Gideon Mthethwa has commended Constable Bhekabakubo Mduduzi Madela (32) who is stationed in Sundumbili for efficiently compiling evidence and working diligently on two separate cases which resulted in convictions.

Mthethwa said through Madela’s hard work Mbongiseni Pollen Undertaker Ngema (33) was convicted to 15 years’ imprisonment by the Eshowe Magistrate’s Court for murder and he was declared unfit to possess a firearm.

According to Mthethwa, Ngema had broken into the home of the deceased and shot the deceased more than four times.

He said Ngema was later arrested by Madela.

In the second conviction which Mthethwa applauded the constable for his commitment and determination, Sibekezelo Ndimande, a 35-year-old female, was convicted to 10 years’ imprisonment by the Eshowe Magistrate’s Court for stabbing to murder a female victim sometime last year.

“Madela has been in service at SAPS for five years and he is one of our most dedicated members. He is setting a good example for younger police officials. These convictions help reduce crime and make our communities safer,” Mthethwa said.
