Doonside business robbery and murder, 2 robbers sentenced

On 11 February 2020, the Durban High Court sentenced Dillyn Adams (18) to 12 years imprisonment for murder and 10 years for business robbery.

His co-accused Sakhile Zamane Mtolo (33) was sentenced to 15 years imprisonment for murder and business robbery.

They were also declared unfit to possess a firearm. Their sentence follows after the court heard how they attacked a shop owner at Doonside in Amanzimtoti. It is alleged that on 12 June 2017, the accused entered a supermarket at Doonside where they held up the two victims inside the store.

One of the accused jumped over the counter and stole an amount of cash from the till. As they were about to exit the store they shot 26-year-old Rahman Manburbur before they fled the scene. The victim succumbed to the gunshot wound sustained.

After an intensive investigation the culprits involved were apprehended and tried in court.

“It is heart-warming for the family to learn that those responsible for the killing are behind bars. The sterling investigation conducted is commended,” said the KwaZulu-Natal Provincial Commissioner, Lieutenant General Khombinkosi Jula.
