A Ugandan and a Kenyan, who were facing robbery and attempted murder charges, were yesterday sentenced to 15 years imprisonment by High Court Judge Qinisile Mabuza.
They are Samson Dennis (39) and Daniel Kingipanga (24), respectively.
Judge Mabuza said in passing sentence, she considered the nature of the crime, the interests of society, the accused and the victim.
She said crime of robbery was a very serious one, adding that it was gaining frightening momentum in Swaziland.
The judge remarked that it was even more dangerous when a firearm is used.
“A firearm invariably has fatal consequences,” she commented.
“In this case, it was used to subdue the owners and customers of the shop. Accused two (Kingipanga) used the firearm to fend off the police who were pursuing him. Fortunately, no one was killed.”
Justice Mabuza said the society had to be protected from this type of crime.
‘It threatens people’s lives,” she said.
“It takes away by force what people have honestly acquired. While it is being carried out it threatens the victims who are left traumatised.”
The judge observed that Dennis and Kingipanga were young and able bodied, adding that they could have been gainfully employed. She took into account that when they attacked the radio shop they did not shoot any person. The judge said they shot the glass counter where the cell phones were.
“When they left they shot at the floor,” she said.
“I have taken into account that most of the cellphones were recovered and given back to the owners of the radio shop. In respect of accused two, I have taken into account that nobody was fatally injured whilst he was being chased by the police.”
The two committed the crimes at the Manzini Bus Rank on December 25, 2004
In count one (robbery), they were both sentenced to five years without an option of a fine.
They robbed one Jethro Salema Simelane of the cell phones.
On count two (attempted murder of Richard Ndukuzezwe Sibandze) Kingipanga was sentenced to five years without an option of a fine.
In the last count, Kingipanga was to sentenced to five years for attempted to kill a police officer Mphikelel Mabuza in Manzini.
Phathaphatha Mdluli prosecuted while the accused persons conducted their own defence.

Kenyan Ph.D. Student Arrested for Threatening Email
BEAUMONT, Texas – A Lamar University doctoral student was charged with making a terroristic threat after allegedly sending an e-mail threatening to violently disrupt Saturday’s commencement ceremony because he was upset he couldn’t graduate.
Daniel Ogwoka Siringi, 34, was arraigned Thursday on the third-degree felony charge, Beaumont police Officer David Byars said.
Investigators said Siringi denied any involvement in the anonymous e-mail sent to the southeastern Texas school’s president and said secretaries in the graduate office were trying to victimize him.
The e-mail threatened to place people “in fear of serious bodily injury,” according to the state’s probable cause affidavit.
“He didn’t do it,” said Siringi’s attorney, Bruce Hoffer. He added that the state’s claims are based on “innuendo” and “didn’t go far enough to say that he really did any kind of terroristic threat.”
U.S. Marshals on Thursday took Siringi to a federal courthouse where Hoffer said he now faces arraignment on federal charges that the threat was made using a communication system that crossed state lines.
Jefferson County District Attorney Tom Maness told KFDM-TV that the threat was comparable to the 2007 Virginia Tech shootings in which a student killed 32 people before turning the gun on himself. Maness said he could not elaborate on the exact nature of the threatened injury but said no guns were found.
“We don’t take this lightly, we have zero tolerance for these,” Maness told the Beaumont Enterprise.
Siringi, a chemical engineering doctoral student, was denied graduation because he missed a deadline on his dissertation, said Kevin B. Smith, Lamar’s senior associate provost for academic affairs.
He remained in custody Thursday on a $200,000 bond. If convicted, Siringi could face up to 10 years in state prison and a $200,000 fine, Maness said.
