Daniel Zambukeri aged 33 was sentenced to an effective life imprisonment by the Limpopo High Court sitting in Thohoyandou for murder. Zambukeri was found guilty for his starring role in the brutal murder of his elder brother’s wife, Hlayisani Preshia Hlongwani aged 26.

This heavy jail term emanated from an incident which took place on 17 April 2017, when the accused promised to accompany the deceased from Nsavulani village to Hlomela village where she was going to fetch her child.
The accused organised the vehicle but when they arrived at Hlomela village, the car drove straight into the nearby bushes.

The deceased’s legs were then tied against the tree and was left alone. In the evening, the accused returned to that spot, attacked the deceased, broke her arm and cut off her body parts before killing her.

Following the Police’s intensive investigations, the accused was later arrested with three other suspects who were released on R5000.00 bail to allow for a separation of trial.

Nkhensani Christinah Mhlongo aged 52, Solomon Mngengeni Mahumani aged 53 and Amos Mafemani Chuma aged 45 are still expected to meet the same fate when they appear in the same court on the 2 May 2018.

The Provincial Commissioner Lieutenant General Nneke Ledwaba has welcomed this long jail term and also commended the Giyani Detectives on the job well done.

We hope that by removing this criminal from our streets for such a long time, will serve as a deterrent to all the criminals out there and our communities will also stay peacefully. All the criminals who are still engaged in any form of criminal activities especially crimes against women, will be dealt with mercilessly and without compromise, concluded General Ledwaba.
