Wife and boyfriend sentenced to life imprisonment for murder of husband



Justice has prevailed in the murder of school teacher Daniel Ramaepadi.


The two accused, Glenrose Vuyela Ramaepadi aged 41 and Sewisha Johannes Mphego aged 43 were each sentenced to life imprisonment by the Limpopo Division of the High Court in Polokwane on Friday 12 November 2021, for the brutal murder of 57-year-old  Ramaepadi, the husband of Glenrose, during 2017.

Ramaepadi, a teacher at Manoke Secondary School was killed on Saturday 22 July 2017.


“The duo was in a relationship when they plotted to kill the wife’s husband and hired a hitman, the hitman finally carried out the deadly action and shot the deceased while at his home at Ga-Matodi village in the Tubatse policing area,” said Limpopo SAPS spokesman Brig Motlafelo Mojapelo.


He said a case of murder was then opened at Tubatse SAPS and police commenced with initial investigations and manhunt for the suspects. The case was later transferred to Provincial Investigating Unit and assigned to Sergeant Qiunani Mgabine.


“The two accused and the hitman were arrested, unfortunately during the trial, the hitman mysteriously died while in jail and the two accused were released after the case was struck off the roll due to lack of evidence.


“Following thorough investigations by Sergeant Mgabine, the pair was positively linked to the murder, and they were re-arrested and subsequently convicted,” added Mojapelo


The Provincial Commissioner of Police in Limpopo Lieutenant General Thembi Hadebe, commended the relentless efforts and determination manifested by the investigating officer which led to the hefty sentence and ensuring that justice prevailed.
