Panayiotou sentenced to life behind bars

Port Elizabeth business man, Christopher Panayiotou, and his two co-accused, Sinethemba Nenembe & Zolani Sibeko were convicted of the murder of Jayde Panayiotou in April 2015. Judgement was handed down on 2 November 2017 the day that Panayiotou turned 31.

Panayiotou's sister Kaliope Panayiotou told the court that they missed Jayde and her death left a huge void in their lives. She described her brother as a gentle giant and a loving and compassionate human being, and asked the court to have mercy when sentencing him.

Panayiotou was found guilty of murder and was sentenced to life behind bars, while Nenembe was found guilty of murder and robbery and was sentenced to life plus an additional 15 years for his role in Jayde’s murder. Sibeko will spend 15 years in jail for conspiracy to commit murder.
