  • Zuma's former pilot sent to prison for murder

    Yesterday, the Alexandra Magistrate's Court in Johannesburg sentenced Ramolefi to 15 years in prison for murder. His crime: Stabbing the man who had an affair with his wife. In April 2013, Ramolefi, 50, and his wife were at a car wash in Midrand when he spotted Sibusiso Buthelezi, the man who had wooed his wife. Social worker Mosidi Sennelo, who was appointed by the defence to make recommendation for sentencing, compiled a report that painted a picture of a meek Ramolefi who was “greeted by a hot punch in his face” after Buthelezi tapped him on the shoulder. Acting in self-defence, the pilot pulled out a Swiss pocket knife and stabbed Buthelezi, Sennelo said. But Magistrate Gideon Scheidler snubbed

    Johannesburg - “It was not the first time an attempt on Wandile Bozwana’s life was made, but this time it was fatal.” These were the sentiments expressed by Modisenyane Segapo – Bozwana’s “best friend” and municipal manager of Naledi Municipality in Vryburg in North West – yesterday.

Bozwana died after the car he was travelling in was peppered with bullets in a dramatic daylight shooting. He said Mahumapelo called on those with information to approach the law enforcement agencies rather than to raise suspicions in the public space.
