Two South African men and a juvenile bags life imprisonment

See how LIB is reporting it....

"Two South African men and a juvenile were on Wednesday sentenced to life imprisonment by Mokerong Regional court on charges of murder. 
Thapelo Kgosana (21) and Johannes Madiba (32) were sentenced to life imprisonment whereas an 18-year-old juvenile was sentenced to a diversion program for three years and upon turning 21, he will then serve 2 more years in prison.
The three were convicted of murdering an innocent 29-year-old Martin Sekanka Lebelo who was waiting for the initiates he was to transport home on the morning of their graduation. 
The incident took place last year on youth day 2017-06-16. The accused found the deceased parked in the bush waiting and started accusing him of being a stock thief. They then stoned him to death.
Welcoming the sentence, the Provincial Commissioner, Lieutenant General Nneke Ledwaba stated that these sentences should send a clear message that our criminal justice system does not tolerate any acts of vigilantism".

"We've always said people must desist from taking the law into their own hands but should instead cooperate with the police to fight crime."
