Man Sentenced For Sacrificing His 1-Year-Old Nephew In Satanic Money Ritual

Prosecutor Wilsenach urged the court to impose a just sentence of life imprisonment, emphasizing the need for accountability and justice for the victim and his family.

In a disturbing case that has shocked the community, a 37-year-old man from Ekangala has been sentenced for the murder of his one-year-old nephew. The North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria found Sipho Vincent Maseko guilty of killing the child in order to perform a satanic ritual.

The court not only handed down a sentence for the heinous crime but also declared Maseko unfit to possess a firearm. As part of the sentencing, the police were authorized to conduct a search and seizure of firearms at his home.

Additionally, the court ordered that the mother of the deceased be informed if Maseko becomes eligible for parole and makes representations.

During the sentencing proceedings, the court heard a victim impact statement from the mother of the child. She described her brother as a monster and devil, expressing the emotional damage caused by the incident. The trauma was so severe that she turned to alcohol in an attempt to numb the pain, resulting in a miscarriage due to stress and insomnia. Now, with a four-month-old baby, she lives in constant fear that her new child may suffer the same fate as her deceased son.

The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) spokesperson, Lumka Mahanjana, reiterated the mother’s concerns, stating that the sentencing aimed to raise awareness of the need to protect the most vulnerable members of society.

In aggravation, the prosecutor, Advocate Andre Wilsenach, highlighted Maseko’s lack of remorse for his actions. Not only did he fail to apologize to the family for his heinous crime, but he also sacrificed an innocent child in pursuit of personal gain and fortune. Motivated by greed, Maseko’s actions were driven by a desire for material wealth.

Agreeing with the state’s arguments, Judge Mashudu Munzhelele condemned Maseko’s actions and motivations. Instead of taking responsibility, he attempted to shift the blame onto external forces, claiming influence from the devil. The judge noted that Maseko had failed in his duty to protect the child and that the boy had suffered at the hands of his own uncle.

Given the severity of the crime and the lack of remorse shown by the defendant, Judge Munzhelele found no substantial and compelling circumstances to deviate from imposing the prescribed minimum sentence.

The court hoped that this sentence would serve as a reminder to the public about the importance of safeguarding and protecting the most vulnerable members of society.
