Amos Mbedzi, who was convicted of five charges including sedition and murder, has been sentenced to 85 years and six months in prison by the High Court in Swaziland today (17 September 2012).
Mbedzi was arrested following an attempt to blow up a bridge near the Lozitha royal residence in September 2008. Two people with him died from injuries caused when the bomb exploded prematurely.
Judge Bheki Maphalala sentenced Mbedzi to 25 years jail for the murder of MJ Dlamini; another 25 years for the murder of Jack Govender; 20 years for attempted murder; 15 years for sedition and six month for making an unlawful entry into Swaziland.
