Sabelo Mhlanzi sentenced to ten years’ imprisonment

The Johannesburg Magistrate’s Court recently sentenced Sabelo Mhlanzi (28) to ten years’ imprisonment for business robbery and possession of an unlicensed firearm.

Spokesperson for Jeppe SAPS Captain Richard Munyayi said Mhlanzi was arrested last year for business robbery in Jeppestown.

“A 28-year-old businesswoman was at her shop when two men entered. They produced firearms and demanded money. They took R10 000 and groceries before they left the shop.

“Police were called to the scene and a description was given to them. They went out looking for the suspects and spotted them walking on the street.

“They ran away when they saw the police and then police gave chase. One of the men, who was later identified as Sabelo Mhlanzi, was arrested and found to be in possession of a firearm. He was taken to the Jeppe SAPS where he was charged with business robbery and possession of an unlicensed firearm,” said Munyayi.

Mhlanzi was found guilty and sentenced to eight years for armed robbery and two years for possession of an unlicensed firearm and ammunition.

“Both sentences will run concurrently,” said Munyayi.
