PRETORIA - A convicted man who killed a Pretoria police officer was sent to prison for the rest of his life on Friday for the 2008 murder of the inspector who was responding to an ATM bombing. 

North Gauteng High Court Judge Bert Bam sentenced Sibusiso Moloi to a further 70 years for a range of crimes, including illegal possession of explosives and firearms. 

It was a bullet fired from an AK-47 which ricocheted off the bonnet of inspector Jaco Botha’s patrol car which struck him in the neck and head. 

Moloi was part of the gang which blew up two ATMs before opening fire on the first police officer to arrive at the scene. 

The robbers made off with R13,000 and cigarettes stolen from a local convenient store. 

As it turns out, it was a thumbprint on a packet of cigarettes found on the floor in the shop which linked Moloi to the crime. 

During sentencing, Bam told Moloi that no individual or business was safe anymore because of criminal gangs like his.
