The accused was sentenced on Friday, September 14 after the court heard how he terrorized the community of Madadeni last year.

On October 21, the victim Joshua Nkosi (47) was in his vehicle parked behind Rumelin Stadium in Madadeni with his girlfriend. They were approached by the accused who was armed with a pistol. Nkosi was shot and killed and his body was taken out from his vehicle. The accused drove the vehicle away with the female. While driving, it is alleged that the vehicle lost control and overturned. That is when the woman escaped.

A motorist who spotted the accident stopped to help not realising that he was assisting a hijacker. The accused opened fire at the motorist and his two passengers. A passenger was injured and taken to hospital for treatment. The accused then robbed them of their cellphones before taking their vehicle away. Cases of murder, robbery and attempted murder were opened at the Madadeni police station for further investigation.
