The KwaZulu-Natal Acting Provincial Commissioner, Major General Bheki Langa, welcomed heavy sentenced handed down to Vusumuzi ‘Sosha’ Nduluni (35) for murder, possession of unlicensed firearm and ammunition. “I sincerely appreciated the good work done by KwaDabeka detectives unit who worked as a team and managed to secure good conviction. Such sentence will serve as a warning to other criminals who think of committing such crimes and found in possession of unlicensed firearms and ammunition. I further appeal to the community to come forward with any information about those who are still in possession of unlicensed firearms. We are ready and committed in getting rid of illegal firearms in our society as they are used mainly to kill and rob innocent people,” he said.

The Durban High Court convicted and sentenced Vusumuzi Ndulini to a total of 50 years imprisonment for murder, possession of unlicensed firearm and ammunition. He was sentenced to 25 years for murder, 15 years for possession of unlicensed firearm and 10 years for possession of ammunition. The recovered firearm was positively linked to murder.

On 9 May 2016 at 21:30, the victim Nokukhanya Nyawose (48) was at KwaShembe area, KwaDabeka when she was shot and killed. It appeared that she was killed because she was suspected of being involved in practising witchcraft. A case of murder was opened at KwaDabeka police station for further investigation. Through hard work by detective unit, the accused was arrested two weeks after he committed the murder. An unlicensed .38 special revolver with 46 live rounds was also recovered at his house and taken for ballistic tests.
