A 44-year-old Durban father Sibusiso Mpungose has been handed four life terms for killing four of his children.
Mpungose was handed the sentence in the KwaZulu-Natal High Court in Pietermaritzburg on Wednesday after pleading guilty in October.
He had pleaded guilty to hanging Kuhlekonke, 4, Khwezi, 6, Siphesihle, 10, and his step-daughter Ayakha Jiyane, 17 on September 3, in Wyebank, Pinetown.
Mpungose said in his plea that he killed his children because he believed his wife was cheating on him.
He will return to court later this month to face an additional charge of rape in an unrelated incident, which allegedly occurred mere days before he took the life his children.
