Justice Modiri Letsididi sentenced Poloko to death for the murder, as well as 12 years in jail for the attempted murder charge and 10 years for the robbery.

Letsididi, in passing sentence, had noted that there were several aggravating factors in the case. 

“The crimes were committed in a brutal and ruthless manner because he strangled the deceased. Strangulation by nature leads to a slow and painful death.

In all the circumstances, I am unable to find any extenuating circumstances in the conviction of the offences that could reduce the accused’s blameworthiness.”

sentence this year as Justice Bashi Moesi dismissed Poloko’s application. 

Poloko had made an application he referred to as “an application for redress that sought the Court to discharge his conviction and sentence” before Justice Moesi while awaiting his appeal at the Court of Appeal (CoA).

Poloko was later dubbed “Facebook murderer” since he used to post about his fate on Facebook.

On his very last Facebook post, the former a graduate of Counselling from Tonota College of Education wrote, “Ths is my last msg people, i thank everybody for bein thr 4 me. Goodbye.god is there” (sic).
