Drug addict handed life in prison for killing his father

On Tuesday, in Johannesburg the High Court on Tuesday sentenced a man to life imprisonment and 51 additional years for his father's murder.

A drug addict, Brutus Mhlanga, offered three men his father's car and R150, 000 of his inheritance to help him carry out the crime. Brutus’s father was shot dead and his wife wounded in December 2017. Phindi Mjonondwane, the National Prosecuting Authority’s said: “The motive why he hired killers to murder his father was that his parents reprimanded him for using nyaope. The court came to the conclusion that it was a carefully planned and executed murder.”

His accomplices Hloniphani Ntombela, Ntsheula Caswell and Patrick Ziqubu were also handed life imprisonment. 

The police statement said on Tuesday: “Ntsheula was sentenced to life imprisonment plus 45 years, Ntombela to life imprisonment plus 51 years, Ziqubu to life imprisonment plus 63 years, whilst Mhlanga was sentenced to life imprisonment plus 51 years’’.
