Man gets 15 years jail for murder after brawl at a Yeoville shebeen

A man is sentenced to 15 years in prison after a successful police investigation.


The Yeoville police are pleased with the 15-year prison sentence handed down to Xola Prince Lusiki after he was found guilty of the murder of Tebogo Kgoroeaboco.

On 29 March Lusiki was sentenced to 15 years in prison in the Johannesburg Regional Court. According to evidence led during his trial, Lusiki stabbed Kgoroeaboco after a brawl at a local shebeen.

“He was sentenced after he was convicted of stabbing the late Kgoroeaboco several times with a beer bottle at a tavern on 27 April 2015,” said Yeoville Police spokesperson Captain Sifiso Mabizela.

Through hard work and the dedication of the detectives Sergeant Nicholas Masimini and Captain Nomangaliso Moloi, Lusiki was convicted successfully. The officers managed to arrest the suspect within 24 hours of receiving the case docket, said Mabizela.

“The two officers managed to obtain witness statements and then traced Lusiki until he was located in Hunter Street and apprehended by the two dedicated members of the service.

“During the trial, the investigating officer would receive calls from private numbers offering him money to drop the case or destroy the case, but he didn’t succumb,” said Mabizela.

Mabizela commended the detectives’ efforts and commitment and said he did his job without fear or favour. He also encouraged residents to come forward with information timeously to ensure that criminals are brought to book.
