Killers of COPE MP Must Not Get Parole

04 April 2013      

The IFP has welcomed the sentencing of the killers of COPE MP, Reverend Jack Tolo, but is concerned that his killers should serve a minimum of 20 years before they are given any chance of parole. 

IFP Spokesperson on Police, Mr Velaphi Ndlovu, MP, said, "We want to congratulate the investigators for their hard work and witnesses for the efforts they have made in assisting the police in the apprehension and prosecution of these killers. We hope this sends a strong message to would be killers." 

The IFP believes that the justice system has shown how effectively it can function in this case. 

"People like these do not deserve to be part of our society and we can only hope that justice will be handed down as swiftly in all other cases as well," concluded Ndlovu.
