Man put in jail for stabbing victim over broken shack windows
A 30-year old KwaZulu-Natal man who murdered a man due to an heated argument over a broken window has been put to jail for 15 years.
This week saw the sentence of Simphiwe Nkomo in the Verulam Regional Court for the killing Philani Dladla (30).
According to police, Dladla had been on a walk with two of his friends when they passed by Nkomo and his brother sitting close to a dwelling at Magwaveni.
According to police spokesperson Colonel Thembeka Mbele:
“Nkomo’s brother accused the victim and his friends of breaking the windows at his shack, but they denied doing so.”
It is alleged that the victim and his friends asked Nkomo’s brother who broke the windows which led to an heated argument.
“Nkomo assaulted one of the women and thereafter Dladla reprimanded him and the friends left.”
“Nkomo followed them with a knife and stabbed Dladla multiple times. Dladla alerted his friends to run for their lives.”
“He sustained multiple stab wounds and was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.”
Mbele said a murder case was filed at Tongaat police station for investigation.
“Nkomo fled the area and was traced and tracked in the Eastern Cape. Detectives arrested Nkomo in February 2019.”
He remanded in custody throughout the trial until his prosecution was successful.
