Mmegi Online :: CoA reduce sentence for ‘ARV secret’ passion killer








The CoA has reduced Kangangwane Ube’s sentence to 10 years after the lower court hit him with 15 years for manslaughter.

Ube was initially charged with murder of his girlfriend in March 2014, but the charge was later changed to manslaughter.

According to the facts, Ube and the deceased were in a tumultuous relationship characterised by fighting, manipulation and mistrust.

On the fateful day they quarreled after he complained about the deceased’s financial management and that she kept a secret that she was on ARV treatment and that she had given him the virus.

However, the reduction of the sentence was

not based on the background of the case.

According to Justice Arthur Hamilton’s ruling, the reduced sentence was based solely on the account that Ube had spent time in jail before he was convicted.

“While the quarrel, which preceded the killing, may have involved recriminations on either side, I do not regard the background including the financial complaints and HIV virus as significant for the purpose of sentencing,” he said.

He explained that 10 years was appropriate with credit given to time spent in prison, that he had pleaded guilty and that was said to have shown remorse.
