Johannesburg - A 32-year-old police constable has been sentenced to 15 years imprisonment for killing his girlfriend in front of her children, the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (Ipid) said on Monday.

Spokesperson Moses Dlamini said Constable Cingakufani Mbiza was also declared unfit to own or possess a firearm.

Mbiza shot dead his girlfriend, Cinna Ncada, 23, in the head on May 28 last year. She was shot dead in front of her young children, at the time aged 3 and 5 years respectively.

The shooting happened in the street at the corner of Vasco da Gama and 12th Avenue in Marlboro. The policeman then fled the scene.

The Ipid took over the case and Mbiza was arrested while at work at the Johannesburg Central police station.

The post mortem found the cause of death to be a gunshot wound to the head.

His 5-year-old son testified against him with the assistance of a social worker on Wednesday last week, Dlamini said.

"Other witnesses also testified against the accused. The accused was found guilty of murder and sentenced to 15 years imprisonment.

Mbiza was sentenced on Thursday last week.
