Six men were sentenced for murder last week after entering into a plea agreement with the state.

Phakamani Hadebe, Nhlangano Ndlovu, Sanele Mbhele, Siphakanyiswa Dladla, Zitha Radebe, and Siphiwe Mazibuko were sentenced to prison terms ranging from six to 22 years.

According to the plea agreement, the men identified a man named Khanyisani Mpungose as the one who hired them to assassinate the Gauteng health officer.
