Kudus to Judge M Makhanya who ensured six savage killers of a toddler will spend much of their lives behind bars.
Lutricia Nkentjane’s (3) body was mutilated after she was suffocated by these men who included her uncle whom she trusted in 2015.
Sfiso Mhloli Mazibe, Michael Mandla Mokoena, Themba Myambo, Louis Sitole, Thembinkosi Maziya andJabulani Ndlovu were all found guilty on kidnapping and murder. Scenes of jubilation among the crowds gathered in front of the court during sentencing were an indication of the horror the communities in and around Mbombela experienced after the savage killing.
Sithole will spend 19 years imprisonment for murder and five years for kidnapping behind bars. During sentencing, Judge Makhanya said, “Sithole was a close relation and was present when she was murdered. He played a role as held her hand while they strangled her.” The other kidnappers-killers will all spent a large part of their natural lives with prison rights, while a young girl was killed to satisfy perverse cravings.
But even in jail there is justice as child molesters and killers are considered the lowest forms of life and will be dealt with accordingly.
