TO HANG: Thamo

A man branded a cold-blooded killer was sentenced to hang last Tuesday. 34-year-old Zibani Thamo will pay the ultimate penalty after he murdered his girlfriend and dismembered her body before burning and burying her remains in various shallows graves.
Francistown High Court Justice Judge Rannowane condemned the Maitengwe born Thamo to death after finding no extenuating factors in the ruthless killing four years ago at the couples rented house in Somerset.

Rannowane branded Thamo a ruthless cold-blooded murderer who not only killed, but also callously disposed of the remains of his victim in a manner that would make discovery difficult. He also noted that Thamo had maintained throughout the trial that he never killed his girlfriend Sihle Dube, and consequently never gave any evidence of extenuating factors. “The court will therefore never know the precise circumstances in which the deceased lost her life,” the judge said.

He said it was on record that the couple had a troubled love relationship that was characterized by violent attacks on Sihle.
“To subject a defenceless woman to regular bouts of violence and finally kill her is morally repugnant,” Rannowane said.
The convicted man’s lawyer Chadwick from Chadwick, Anderson and Partners had submitted in mitigation that such cases did not usually attract the death sentence. However the judge pointed out: “After a very careful and most anxious consideration, I find that there were no extenuating circumstances. I am therefore under an obligation to pass the ultimate penalty prescribed by law.”
He ended by sending Thamo to the gallows with the chilling words, “I hereby sentence you to be hanged by your neck until you are dead. May God have mercy on your soul.”

Is he dead yet? No. He is on death row, which means no one knows when they are going to hang him. Even he doesn’t know. But in the meantime he will be in prison, where he was for the last 3 years, where he will be fed, given free clothing and if he is sick, gets free medical treatment. Before he is to be hanged, they will take him to the clinic once again to make sure he is fit to be hanged and if he is unwell, they will postpone the hanging. When he is finally due for… Read more »

There is no better fitting punishment for this kind of crime. For those who oppose capital punishment, just read this and tell us if there is any more fitting sentence for this kind of crime. SA wishes they had not done away with it. The killers with multiple life sentences are still killing within and without prisons! They change anyone who comes into contact with them into a hardcore killer when they should long be dead! People like this can’t be allowed to continue to influence our lives.

Bupt guys being honest does he really get to pay the same price the victim paid if it was for me the way you end someone’life should be the same way yours is ended coz people do unbelievable things to other people and they get a moer lesser price than the victims and those who are related to the victims gone why is killing the last solution to a unfunctioning relationship well may the LORD FORGIVE YOU AND YOUR SOUL REST IN PEACE EVEN THOUGH YOU DIDNT LEAVE ANY PEACE BEHIND

SBD

Zibani- IF YOUU OULD HEAR ME. THE LORD IS READY TO FORGIVE YOU! Do not condemn your self any further my dear brother but open your heart to receive his mercy. I know you may feel hopeless right now, but in JESUS there is forgiveness: regardless of what you have done. Grace be unto you in Jesus name.

The law is really silly when it comes to the death penalty. Two convicts who both caused death(killed) of another human being can have two different sentences. The one who did it deliberately gets the death penalty. The other one who says he did not intend to do it, or did it in self defence, gets a lighter sentence and at times even gets off. But both have killed someone. So what does the sentence serve and what is the punishment for, if the other killer gets off? A few years back a man stabbed his girl friend 40times and… Read more »

There is nothing I dislike like God being dragged into nonsense like this. People that are not well read in the Bible and dont know what God says about such behaviour should be quiet and refrain from dragging God into such garbage. In the New Testament, the highest commandement is to love our neigbours like we love ourselves. In so doing one cannot possibly brutally murder their brother because they would not murder themselves. Infact as opposed to the Old Testament that says “thou shall not kill’ Jesus says in the New Testament if you HATE your brother then in… Read more »
