JOHANNESBURG — A man who murdered three family members in the Sobantu area outside Pietermaritzburg has been sentenced to five life sentences.

About three weeks ago, Njabulo Dlovu killed a seven-year-old girl, her 35-year-old mother and her 65-year-old grandmother. He also raped the girl.

Ndlovu admitted to drinking beer at the deceased’s house with his friend and after his friends left he had consensual sex with the child’s mother and they fell asleep.

He said the grandmother asked him to leave in the middle of the night, threatening to kill him with a knife but after she managed to take it from her, he killed her.

The child’s mother woke up to ask what had happened but they fought and he killed her too.

The seven-year-old came into the room and screamed, he strangled her, raped her twice before strangling her again to make sure she was dead.

The Pietermaritzburg High Court convicted him of three counts of murder and two counts of rape.

NPA regional spokeswoman Natasha Ramkisson-Kara said: “Ndlovu pleaded guilty to these charges last week in the same court. In the same judgment, the judge ordered that his name be placed on the national sex offender registry. Another ruling is that the Department of Corrections must contact the family of the deceased before he is considered for parole.
