Criminals have always been giving the South African community a hard time for a long time.

A solution never seemed in sight as whenever the suspects get convicted, they were given a light sentence for their crimes.

This was done by the jury despite the fact that some of the criminals would be too dangerous to be part of any community.

Some have even made calls for a return of the death sentence to address the situation but a review of the constitution has not yet been done.

According to a media statement that was released by the South African Police Services, a 29 year old man was slapped with a hefty sentence which means that he will never step back into the society.

The man was one murder suspect who had the life sentence handed down on him following a series of murders he was accused of having done. On Wednesday the 10th of February 2021, a sitting which was done at Breyten by the Mpumalanga Division of the High Court handed out the sentence.

Lieutenant General Mondli Zuma who is the Mpumalanga Provincial Commissioner of the South African Police Services welcomed the sentence.

He added that this should send a strong warning to all criminals that they can be taken care of by the hand of the law.

In a separate incident a murder accused got arrested on Monday the 15th of February 2021 in Standerton. The suspect is a 25 year old man who is set to make an appearance on Wednesday the 17th of February 2021 before the Verbal Magistrate Court.

His arrest comes after he is being alleged to have carried out a murder in December 2017. The murder he is being said he committed was carried out near Bethal at Emzinoni.

According to a media statement that was released by the police department, it was stated that on the fateful day, the accused suspect was at a tavern.

At this tavern, a heated argument broke out between him and another man who was 25 years of age. A fight later on ensued and the other man ended up getting stabbed several times at the tavern by the suspect.

After noticing that the situation had gone nasty as he had stabbed the other man, the suspect fled from the scene.

The police and paramedics were called on the scene and they began carrying out investigations. Paramedics certified the victim dead on the scene as he was lifeless and there was nothing they could do to save him.

It was concluded that the had fled from the scene and was evading arrest. Since then, the suspect went into hiding and the police have been hunting for him.

A few days ago, the police learnt of the location of the suspect after they had gathered some information through an intelligence driven operation.

The members successfully followed up on the information they had gathered and found the suspect at his hideout.

He was immediately arrested and has been in police custody awaiting his court appearance.
