A notorious murderer, who had eloped justice for 15 years, Senki Mavin Mokoena, 39, has been arrested by the Bethlehem Detectives.
Police spokesman, Brigadier Motantsi Makhele, in a statement said that Mokoena was arrested at his workplace at one of the firms in Vanderbijlpark, on Sunday, February 7.
Mokoena was a detainee together with seven other co-accused in September 2006 when they allegedly assaulted Petrus Tshabalala, who was 40 years then, and who later died. His accomplices were later sentenced and served their term, while Mokoena refrained from attending court for the same matter.
Police have since been on his trail until his ultimate arrest last Sunday.
His case was heard, on Monday, 8 February, 2021, and he was found guilty. His sentencing was announced by the Magistrate on 10 February 2021. Just like his co-accused, Mokoena is expected to spend 90 days in prison and four years wholly suspended.
Free State Provincial Commissioner, Lieutenant General Baile Motswenyane, has commended investigating officer, Detective Captain Jabulani Victor Mbonambi, for making sure that he left no stone unturned in ensuring that Mokoena faces the music just like his accomplices.
