The Western Cape Provincial Commissioner Lieutenant General Thembisile Phathekile welcomes the judgement by the Strand Regional court on 20 February 2023.
The court found Anele White guilty of murder and sentenced him to an effective 12 years in prison.
In November 2021, White got involved in a physical altercation with a 25 year old male at a shebeen in Ezinkomeni informal settlement.
The 33 year old White left and came back later with a knife which he used to stab the victim to death. He was arrested on the same day by Lwandle police and remanded in custody.
His case was assigned to an experienced investigator, Detective Sergeant Mfundo Soyiyo of Lwandle Detective unit, who worked hand in glove with the prosecuting team in ensuring that the perpetrator is brought to book.
Following a two year trial, Anele White was sentenced to 12 years imprisonment and declared unfit to possess a firearm.
