Potchefstroom: The North West High Court sitting in Mokgwase has on Tuesday 12 February 2018, sentenced a 29-year–old accused, Joseph Mashava, and the 28-year-old Shimbuya Munjarazi, to double life imprisonment each for murder and rape.

The accused were further sentenced to 5 years for house breaking, 15 years for robbery with aggravated circumstances, 5 years for possession of unlawful firearm and 3 years for unlawful possession of ammunition.
