Gangster sentenced for murder

A 21-year-old gang member from Thabong received a ten-year jail sentence for stabbing a 24-year-old to death following an altercation.

Thabiso Dala, an International Junior Portuguese (IJP) gang member, was sentenced in the Welkom Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday, 1 September, for the murder of Busa Sethathi.

The murder occurred on 3 August 2019.

According to the police, Sethathi and his female cousin were attacked by three males. Sethathi was stabbed with a sharp object and succumbed to his wounds. Two of the attackers were known to the victim’s cousin.

Three suspects were arrested the following day by members of Thabong Crime Prevention.

The case was assigned to Det. WO Bertus Olivier, who successfully took the matter to court.

Thabiso was sentenced after pleading guilty. The two co-accused were acquitted, as they could not be positively linked to the actual murder.

Free State Provincial Commissioner Lt Gen. Baile Motswenyane welcomed the conviction and sentencing of the accused.
