Umbumbulu serial rapist sentenced to life in jail

A clear and present danger to society, and especially women, " was how Acting Judge Anand Maharaj described a serial rapist and murderer, whose victims included a heavily pregnant mother-to-be and a mentally challenged woman.
In October 2013 one of Ndimande victims was a first time six months' pregnant woman. Ndimande stormed into her Umbumbulu home and forced himself on her. After he had raped her, he put his hands around the young mother-to-be neck and choked her to death. Her neighbours found her half naked body the next day. Another one of his victims was a mentally challenged woman. She survived the April 2011 attack and was present in court to give evidence.
Judge Maharaj found Ndimande guilty on five counts of rape; two counts of murder, two counts of robbery with aggravating circumstances; one count of malicious damage to property; two counts of escaping from lawful custody; one of fleeing from law- enforcement officers at the Umbumbulu court and the other one from fleeing from Durban High court. Ndimande was sentences to two life imprisonment.
Constable G.M. Makhonza who is stationed at Umbumbulu SAPS worked long and hard on this case to ensure a hefty sentence was given to the accused. Cst. Makhonza received the case in 2013 and has worked 4 long years to put Bhekunjani Ndimande behind bars. This is excellent investigation and professional service given by Cst. Makhonza. The accused, Ndimande, escaped twice when at court during his trial but Cst Makhonza worked continuously to ensure he was apprehended each time and brought before the court for the completion of his trial.
Ethekwini Outer South Cluster Head of Investigations, Colonel Anita Narayan said, " The commitment and professionalism of Cst. Makhonza led to the securing of an excellent conviction of two life terms of imprisonment! Cst. Makhonza did not only bring justice for those hurt and who died in these crimes, but he also ensured that the accused , Ndimande, would never do this again to someone else. He has helped remove a danger criminal off our streets! I commend Cst. Makhonza for an outstanding investigation! I am very proud of him."
