Pitch Black Afro Guilty of Culpable Homicide is pronounced by the Court. Throwback Hip Hop artist Pitch Black Afro’s real name Thulani Ngcobo has been waiting for his sentence for a long time and the verdict has finally been reached.
The court found the rapper guilty on charges of guilty murder for the murder of his wife, Catherine Modisane. However, Ngobo was not found guilty of defeating the ends of justice.
Ngcobo has been on trial at the South Gauteng High Court since being accused of killing his wife at a bed and breakfast facility in Yeoville, Johannesburg in 2018.
Judge J du Plessis said that the state could not prove beyond doubt that the rapper was trying to kill his wife. It was then concluded from a post-mortem report that Modisane died of blunt-force trauma to the head.
“Under state concerns, he portrayed himself as a bad witness,” says Judge J du Plessis.
Pitch Black Afro then admitted that the police had forced him to recognize the crime against him, and he wasn’t going to take it lightly.
”I won’t take this lying down. Bayang’sukela.. They’ve wasted one-and-a-half years of my life,” he said. won’t take this lying down” he said
