On the 30thof March 2021, the Durban High Court Judge Narini Hiralall ruled that Mvuyisi Noguda indeed killed the 23-year-old artist and LGBTQ activist on 6 February 2020 that way he will be sententenced to 25 Years in Prison for his cruel and cold act of hate crime!
LGBTQi Society says at least justice was served but this was just the biggening, Member Hlengiwe Buthelezi made comments after the verdict on Tuesday after a long take of advocating on the case with extended society of the LGBTQi and the general public who stood in radically resilience on #JusticeForLindoCele who was brutally stabbed 21 wounds to death.
Acting Programmes Manager for the Durban Lesbian and Gay Community and Health Centre Ms. Nonhlanhla Mkhize, noted that the defense had been unable to provide a witness, specifically the person who allegedly told Noguda that he’d been raped, to support his claim.
KZN MEC for Social Development Nonhlanhla Khoza dictums that the south African government slams on such acts of hate crime cases and this verdict should be an example to perpetrators of crimes of this nature.
