Tshegofatso Pule’s killer speaks on getting Ntuthuko Shoba raped in prison

Johannesburg – The man convicted of killing Tshegofatso Pule has admitted to the Johannesburg High Court that he spoke about getting Ntuthuko Shoba raped by gang members in prison.

Muzikayise Malephane has been on the witness stand in the Johannesburg High Court on Wednesday testifying against Shoba, who is alleged to be the mastermind behind Pule’s death.

Malephane is serving 20 years for Pule’s murder and has turned State witness.

When he was cross examined by Shoba’s lawyer Norman Makhubela, he was asked about a video taken by a journalist after his sentencing where he said: “I hope they get him before I do.”

“To be honest, your honour, I was going to injure him,” said Malephane.

He was also asked about a voice note that was leaked from prison where he said he would organise members of the 26 or 28 gangs to rape Shoba.

“I was just talking on group chats. I had not arranged such,” he said, adding that did not mean this, but he was just angry.

The matter has been postponed to Thursday where the cross-examination will continue.
