Johannesburg - A former policeman was sentenced to 18 months' correctional supervision for culpable homicide by the Kempton Park Regional Court on Friday, said the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (Ipid).
Manape Phineas Kgoale also received a five year suspended sentence for shooting dead 45-year-old Jeanette Odendaal after she crashed into a stationary police car outside the Kempton Park station in 2011, said Ipid spokesman Moses Dlamini.
He was declared unfit to possess a firearm.
Kgoale, who was initially charged with murder, pleaded guilty to a charge of culpable homicide.
In an affidavit, he said he had thought Odendaal was a hijacker or a car thief.
He was fired from the police after being found guilty by a disciplinary committee in August 2011. - Sapa
