Kagiso - Two brothers were each given 12-year prison sentences in the Kagiso Magistrate's Court for killing an IFP councillor, police said on Thursday.

They shot and killed Patrick Ngubane in his flat in Kagiso's Madala Hostel, on the West Rand, in July 2014, Warrant officer Solomon Sibiya said.

"Your tireless efforts and burning desire to see justice done has paid off," he said.
