Little comfort for Flabba's family as killer is sentenced to 12 years
Nkululeko 'Flabba' Habedi's cousin, Themba Mgiba, says no amount of jail time will bring the family peace.
JOHANNESBURG - Nkululeko Flabba Habedi's family say while they welcome the 12-year sentence handed to his killer it will do little to bring them peace.
Sindisiwe Manqele was sentenced in the High Court sitting in Palm Ridge this afternoon.
WATCH: Manqele gets 12 years for murdering Flabba.
She killed the rapper at his home in Alexandra last year on 9 March 2015.
He says one of the things she has to go through while in prison is anger management.
"These are the programmes; a life skills programme, self-esteem programme and anger management programme."
LISTEN: Flabba's killer sentenced to 12 years.
Sithole granted the convicted killer R15,000 bail, as her defence prepares for leave to appeal her murder conviction and 12 year sentence.
This is above R10,000 already paid.
Habedi's cousin, Themba Mgiba, says no amount of jail time will bring the family peace.
"This is not going to bring him back but the law has taken its course."
The defence is expected back in court to apply for leave to appeal early next month.
