The Polokwane High Court sentenced murder suspect Mashango Samuel Mhuntane, 54, to 15 years in prison on 30 June 2022, and Lieutenant General Thembi Hadebe, the provincial commissioner of Limpopo, has praised this decision.

After the trial, the defendant was found guilty and given a murder sentence of 15 years in jail.

The deceased was attacked by a group of people on 2 June 2019, at around 16:00, in Inveraan village in Senwabarwana. They had accused him of stealing their cattle in previous years. He was brought to Helen Frantz Hospital after suffering serious injuries, but he passed away there.

A murder case was opened when the police were notified, and Detective Sergeant Maimele Phineas Magwele of the Senwabarwana Investigating Unit was given the matter to go into further.

A 54-year-old man (madala) was positively connected to the murder occurrence when the suspect(s) were located. He was detained until his sentence after being arrested.

Lieutenant General Hadebe stated, "We cordially welcome the punishment and we also thank the investigating officer for ensuring that justice is delivered to the victim and his family."
