Woman jailed for unusual robbery, murder plot
A KwaZulu-Natal woman was sentenced to 30 years in jail by the High Court in Pietermaritzburg on Friday for robbery and her involvement in the murder of a domestic worker.
Phumzile Innocentia Radebe, 37, was sentenced to 20 years for the murder of Kanyisa Mabungane, whom she befriended to get her to break into her home.
Mabungane was strangled to death by one of Radebe’s accomplices during the robbery in March 2010.
Radebe was also given two 10 year sentences for the robbery of Margaret Mbamdo and of Mabungane.
One of the robbery sentences would run concurrently with the 20-year murder term.
