An employee at a Limpopo Hospital is behind bars for stealing food meant for patients.

Mpumalanga National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) spokesperson, Monica Nyuswa said Mkhonto pleaded guilty in November 2023, and was subsequently convicted of murdering the police officer. Nyuswa said:

She told the court that she was in a romantic relationship with the deceased (Thwala) and they were residing together from January to July 2022, at Gedlembane, in Pienaar.

After realising that their relationship was volatile she left to her parental home.

On August 2, 2022, the NPA said Mkhonto visited Thwala in Gedlembane. During that visit, an altercation between the two ensued.

After the altercation, the police sergeant fell asleep and that is when Mkhonto took his service pistol and fatally shot him several times while he was in bed.

She then left the scene, taking the deceased’s firearm and vehicle.

On her way to her homestead in Masoyi, she came across a road block in Zwelisha, near KaBokweni, and she threw away the deceased’s firearm which was found by members of the public the following morning.

Upon arrival at her home, Mkhonto then informed her friend about the crime she had committed, and the police were alerted.

She was subsequently arrested and the State successfully opposed her release on bail.
