Double life sentence for murder accused

The man accused for murdering an elderly couple from Great Brak River was handed down a double life sentence in the Mossel Bay High Court on Tuesday 12 September 2017.

Thamsanqa Sishuba (27) was arrested after the bodies of Tewie (72) and Eurika (62) Human was discovered in their home in Sandhoogte Road in Great Brak River in June 2017.

Throughout court proceedings Sishuba claimed his innocence, blaming the murders on his co-accused Steven Lekoro. Tewie Human died from wounds sustained from a panga and his body was discovered in the garage of their home, while Eurika died in the main bedroom from stab wounds.

Lekoro, who is considered the master brain behind the murders fled to Lesotho shortly after the crimes, and is still at large.

During sentencing, Judge Robert Henney told Sishuba that not only did he not show any remorse, but he also neglected to make use of the opportunity to assist police in apprehending Lekoro. He told the court that the Human couple was elderly people who were unable to defend themselves.

Besides two life sentences, Sishuba was also sentenced to a total of thirty years behind bars on two counts of robbery with aggravating circumstances.
