Eyewitness News reporter Nkosikhona Duma reports the judge said Sibusiso Mpungose must be removed from society.

Sibusiso Mpungose has been sentenced to four life terms for killing his three children and his stepdaughter.

The bodies of the three children, aged four, six and 10, were found hanging in their home while the body of the 16-year-old stepdaughter was discovered hanging from a tree.

The court heard that Mpungose killed his children to spite his wife.
