The Station Commander at Kakamas applauded the police members involved for their hard work on the cases that made these sentences possible
TWO MEN from Kakamas have been sentenced to prison for attempted murder in two separate incidents.
Paulus Maduna, 29, was this week sentenced in the Upington Regional Court to seven years’ imprisonment, following an incident which took place on September 30 last year in Middel Street, Langverwag, Kakamas.
On the day, the complainant and her sister were on their way home when Maduna unexpectedly approached her and stabbed her with a knife in the neck and in the head.
During the second incident, a woman was found lying on the ground in Hashvalley, Langverwag, Kakamas after she had been stabbed with a knife by her boyfriend, on December 16 last year.
The accused, Wayne van Zyl, 34, was sentenced in the Upington Regional Court to five years’ imprisonment.
The Station Commander at Kakamas, Colonel De Bruin, yesterday applauded the police members involved for their hard work on the cases that made these sentences possible.
De Bruin added that these sentences would send out a strong message to those “who do not have respect for the life of another person”.
