Tshepo Chauke, 33, and John Nyoni, 30, were each sentenced to 15 years’ imprisonment after being found guilty of murder.
On Sunday, 1 March 2015, the body of a man was found in a river in Muldersdrift. Detective Sergeant Nkuna interviewed Nyoni, whom he knew from another case, after he was said to be a friend of the deceased. There were blood stains on Nyoni’s clothes and as the interview progressed, he admitted to the murder and also indicated that Tshepo Chauke was his accomplice.
The two men were found guilty and sentenced on 8 October.
“Through the hard work of detective Sergeant Nkuna and his good detective skills, the suspects were apprehended and justice was served,” said Lieutenant Colonel Mankontsho Setlhare, the Muldersdrift Police station commander.
