Breaking News! Ntuthuko Shoba Found Guilty of Killing Tshegofatso Pule. After months in and out of court, finally a verdict has been reached. Ntuthuko Shoba has been found guilty of masterminding the killing of Tshegofatso Pule in 2020.
This has been one case that shows how vulnerable women are at the hands of men. Pule was eight months pregnant when her body was found shot and hanging from a tree in Durban Deep in 2020. Muzikayise Malephane was then arrested for the murder, and it later turned out that he was working for Shoba, who got arrested in February 2021. Malephane alleged that he had been hired to kill Pule because Shoba feared his “wife” would find out about Pule’s pregnancy.
Malephane who pleaded guilty of Tshegofatso’s murder is currently serving a 20 year sentence.He drove Tshegofatso to Noordgesig, Soweto and then shot her in her chest he then drove with her to a secluded area in Durban Deep near Roodepoort.
All this time Shoba maintained his innocent and pleaded not guilty of the murder charge against him. Justice has finally been served, as he got charged with murder, an alternative charge of conspiracy to commit murder and defeating the ends of justice. Shoba will be sentenced in May and will remain in custody.
