Captain Thulani Zwane said 30-year-old Xolani Sifiso Mtshali also received 15 years in prison for robbery with aggravating circumstances and another 15 years for attempted murder on Monday.
Mtshali shot dead a motorist and wounded his passenger in January.
“He held the two at gun-point, tied the driver with his shoe laces and forced them into the back seat of their car before driving to a secluded place in Lindelani sugar cane field where he shot them.”
He robbed them of their belongings and fled in their vehicle.
