EX CONVICT KILLS SIX ZIMBAS IN SA newsdzeZimbabweNewsdzeZimbabwe

A 21-year-old South African ex-convict, who allegedly raped and murdered six Zimbabwean women in cold blood, is expected to return to court today.

Sifiso Mkwananzi was arrested in 2022 on charges of raping and murdering six Zimbabwean women, in addition to charges of aggravated robbery and possession of a firearm.

The bodies of the women were found in a beating workshop in Johannesburg.

Three of the murdered women were identified as Joyce Moyo, Nyarai Chihota and Patricia Magisa.

Mkwananzi was in court last Friday and is expected to return today, when the National Prosecuting Authority will have witnesses who will support the premeditation and rape claims.

Through his lawyer, Vuyoloweto Makika, Mkwananzi admitted killing the women, but insisted it was “unintentional”.

“I can’t imagine going to prison for a crime I didn’t commit,” he said. “Killing them was just an instinctive reaction that suddenly appeared during our argument. Therefore, I deny that the murders were intentional.”

Investigating officer, Mr Vincent Saunders, said he believed the murders were revenge killings after he was jailed for 10 months in 2021, accused of raping a commercial sex worker.

He added that all six women “were killed in the same way and were all Zimbabweans.” Announce
