This was according to Xolisile Mpungose’s victim impact statement, which was read out in the Pietermaritzburg High Court yesterday before Sibusiso “Sbu” Mpungose was sentenced to four life terms for murdering his three children and 16-year-old stepdaughter.
“I cannot face other children without thinking about my children. The most painful fact is that they are gone and will never come back to me. I’ll never be able to talk to them, touch them or hear their voices ever again, and my plans for them are gone with them.
“I see no reason for getting up in the morning. I’m in a situation that seems to have no end,” Judge Sharmaine Balton read from Xolisile Mpungose’s statement.
Sbu Mpungose last month pleaded guilty to killing Kuhlekonke, 4, Khwezi, 6, Siphesihle, 10, and stepdaughter Ayakha Jiyane.
