JOHANNESBURG - Two men accused of killing Mozambican national Emmanuel Sithole, also known as Emmanuel Josias, will be sentenced in the Johannesburg Magistrates Court tomorrow.

Sifundo Mzimela and Mthinta Bhengu were found guilty of the murder on 18 April.

Sithole was attacked during widespread xenophobic attacks in South Africa last year.

A third accused, Ayanda Sibiya, was found guilty of assault and robbery.

The National Prosecuting Authority’s Phindi Louw says the three will be sentenced tomorrow. 

“I can confirm that Mr Bhengu and two others appeared in the Johannesburg Magistrates Court of Friday where the State together with the defence argued in mitigating and aggravating sentence and the matter was postponed to Monday.”
