Gang members sentenced to fifteen years for murder, Bloemfontein

Three gang members who caused mayhem in the Free State areas of Mangaung and Pelonomi in August 2016, when they targeted and killed two alleged ex gang affiliates have been sentenced to fifteen years imprisonment each by the Bloemfontein High Court on Friday 25 January 2019.

The Hawks Serious Organised Crime Investigation unit acted swiftly and arrested the trio hardly a week after Telang Chabeli and Tshepo Samusho (28), were brutally stabbed and murdered outside their respective residential addresses near Bloemfontein on Friday 12 August 2016, after they had reportedly left the notorious BTK gang.

Simphiwe Madidilane (21), received two (15) years sentences after he was convicted on two counts of murder whilst Molefi Johannes Matlaeya (20), and Kagisho Mziweni (21), received (15) years each on one count of murder.

The sentences have been ordered to run concurrently meaning each will serve an effective fifteen years imprisonment.
