Killer ‘without remorse’ jailed
Life sentence

A 24-year-old man from Kutlwanong, Odendaalsrus, was sentenced to two life terms after he was found guilty on two counts of murder in the Odendaalsrus Magistrate’s Court.

On 19 October, Magistrate Bassie Mahlatsi sentenced Bohang Moleleki, a Lesotho citizen, for killing two tavern employees on 8 April 2017.

The court heard that the deceased, Seabata Edwin Nthabe (39) and Teboho Lehama (40), were cleaning up in the tavern just after it had closed. Moleleki and three other men entered and opened fire without reason. They fled the scene and Nthabe and Lehama died at the scene.

Moleleki was arrested, but refused to reveal the identity of the three men who were with him.

State prosecutor Meshack Bantu charged Moleleki with two counts of murder while the police were trying to trace the other three.

Bantu described Moleleki as a cold-blooded killer who has no respect for human life because he killed the deceased without any provocation whatsoever.

“The accused does not have any regard for human life. He killed two people without reason and the only appropriate sentence that the court could impose on him is life imprisonment,” said Bantu.

Mahlatsi agreed with the prosecutor and sentenced Moleleki to two life sentences.

Edwin Munyai, regional court control prosecutor, congratulated Bantu with the extent of the effort he invested in this matter.
