Butchery robber gets the chop
LAST Monday a man was sentenced to 15 years imprisonment for an armed robbery at KC Meats in July 2017. The eShowe Regional Court heard how Nkosinathi Mhuqu Cele (34) demanded the employees, who had just cashed up the day’s takings and locked the butchery, hand over the bag of money before running into the bush. A case of armed robbery was opened at the eShowe SAPS and the docket was allocated to D/Sgt Wynne. In October he received information from an informer about the whereabouts of the suspect. The suspect was arrested at Nkanini outside eShowe and was identified by both victims during an identification parade. The court received a well investigated docket resulting in the conviction and sentencing.
