MURDERER SENTENCED TO 12 YEARS
Rustenburg – Sandiso Ngongo (35) was arrested and sentenced to 12 years by the Rustenburg Regional Court on Wednesday 29 August.
Ngongo was sentenced in connection with the 2015 murder of Xolani Dotye (31) at Nkaneng informal settlement outside Rustenburg. Rustenburg police communication and liaison, sergeant Ofentse Mokgadi said Ngongo stabbed Dotye with a knife, in the chest, and fled after a quarrel at a local tavern. Dotye was taken to hospital, but later died.
Sergeant Ofentse said warrant officer Khumalo successfully opposed bail for Ngongo who has been in custody since his arrest in 2016.
The Rustenburg acting station commander, Phenyo Otukile commended both W/O Khumalo and witnesses who remained resolute and cooperated with the police for the duration of the case.
