The hearing of mitigating circumstances in sentencing in the case involving convicted murderer, Nthuthuko Shoba, has been postponed to July the 28th in the High Court in Johannesburg.

Shoba was found guilty of masterminding the death of 28-year-old Tshegofatso Pule in 2020.

He was implicated after convicted hitman, Mzikayise Malepane turned state witness.

Pule, who was eight months pregnant at the time of her death, was hung from a tree in Roodepoort, west of Johannesburg.

Following the conviction, Police Miniter Bheki Cele congratulated the investigators involved in the murder case.

“Police Minister General Bheki Cele has congratulated the detectives who worked on this case, saying the conviction must serve as a reminder for all police officers to always prioritise GBVF(Gender-Based Violence and Femicide ), saying it’s through vigorous dedicated detective work that has led us to this guilty verdict,” said Cele’s Spokesperson, Lirhandzu Themba.
