South Africa: 28-year-old Zimbabwean Handed 6 Life Terms & 192 Years In Jail

South Africa: 28-year-old Zimbabwean Handed 6 Life Terms & 192 Years In Jail

A 28-year-old Zimbabwean national has been handed six life terms and 192 years behind bars by the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria for a string of crimes.

Wellington Kachidza pleaded guilty to 34 counts – six counts of murder, three counts of rape, eight counts of kidnapping, eight counts of extortion, eight counts of robbery with aggravating circumstances and being in the country illegally.

According to the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA), Kachidza’s crime spree took place in Pretoria, between January 2018 and December 2019.

Kachidza’s murder victims were men whom he’d lure under the guise of seeking assistance with driving before kidnapping them and demanding ransom money from their families. He would then kill the men after the monies were paid.

The reported cause of death based on post-mortem for the victims was head injury or trauma to the head. Said NPA spokesperson Lumka Mahanjana:

With the three female victims, he pretended to be offering employment opportunities, he would lure them to a close-by bush or veld, rape them and rob them of their belongings and walk away. Kachidza was arrested on the 15 of January 2020, based on an intelligence-driven operation and was later linked by DNA evidence to the rape counts. He has been in custody since his arrest.

The lead prosecutor in Wellington Kachidza’s case, Prosecutor Adv. Pieter Coetzer argued in court, that the motive behind his crimes was pure greed – and that his evil deeds have had a severe impact, particularly on his rape victims and the families of the men he murdered.

Let us just respect ourselves and shut up when we have nothing to say. As Zimbabweans we should say that we are disappointed as Zimbabwe as a whole. It seems like we are simply rearing criminals, yet from today it is much better to develop our youths so that they won't sit on their hands. Please let's just use our minds and stop posting senseless comments. Thank you Pindula for the update. They that incriminate themselves should rot in jail.

Notice to Shona people::

The Bulawayo pregnate woman association has complained to local authorities and to us their Ndebele husbands that they are mostly abused by the noise done by the Shona expecting woman during delivery,as this causes them to fail to concentrate on their delivery also because they will end up laughing too much instead of delivering.

This other lady said ,"my ribs are painful coz there was this Shona delivering a baby @ Mpilo Hospital,she would scream like a donkey hooihooihooihooi and turn to prophetic tounges rambacashasanda cashorapat mbeva uya and starts speaking languages like Tswana riririiriririririri and Chinese also".She also added by saying that Shona must have gave birth to this Kachidza guy the SHONA criminal..

Yours truely

You are going to live long in the SA jails.You are going to be the case study of all training barristers in criminal law.The good,the,bad,the ugly side of all international laws that were used will be reviewed but you will not get a feel of the outside world.Good food,medicine will be provided to keep you going.
