Mpuma lawyer's murder case delayed

THE sentencing of the lawyer who accused a man of bonking his wife and then sprayed him with a hail of bullets was postponed yesterday to August 17.

The decision was taken by the circuit of the Pretoria high court in Nelspruit.

Mandla Petro Mathebula, 39, of White River, Mpumalanga, was found guilty of killing Bhekumuzi Vincent Nkuna in 2007 after finding him with his wife Sibongile Gladys Mkhwanazi.

He was also found guilty of two counts of attempted murder and one of murder.

Mathebula had reportedly suspected his wife was having an affair. He found her travelling around White River in a car with Nkuna. With them were Nomzamo Toppy Khoza and Sipho Ntuli.

Mkhwanazi told the court Mathebula had chased them in his car.

"After about 15km Mathebula caught up with us," Mkhwanazi said. "He rammed our vehicle, causing Nkuna to smash into a building."

Mathebula got out of his car and fatally shot Nkuna. Khoza and Mkhwanazi were critically wounded but survived. Ntuli escaped unhurt.
