A MAN, who killed four sisters after torching the hut they were sleeping in in Gokwe, has been sentenced to life in prison.

Dingilizwe Dube (39) of Gayela Village under Chief Madliwa’s area in Nkayi District was told by Bulawayo High Court judge Justice Nokuthula Moyo on circuit in Gweru that he missed death sentence by a whisker because he had been convicted of a lesser charge of murder with constructive intent.

Justice Moyo said Dube, who had no intention of killing the four sisters but his father in-law, was negligent in causing their death as he did not check if his father-in-law’s bedroom in which they were sleeping was occupied or not before setting it on fire.
