The victim of the coffin assault incident, Rethabile Mlotshwa says his offenders should get a harsh sentence for the crime they have committed against him.

Mlotshwa has been testifying at the sentencing of the two men who forced him into a coffin and threatened to set it alight.

The High Court in Middelburg found the two men, Theo Jackson and Willem Oosthuizen guilty of attempted murder.

Speaking through an interpreter, Mlotshwa says he has been having a hard time dealing with the after-effects of the incident:

“I became scared for my life, and I thought maybe something could happen to me. My lady and I can appreciate if the court can impose 15 years upwards.”
