Cape Town – Century City serial killer Khangayi Sedumedi will spend the rest of his life behind bars.
On Thursday, Western Cape High Court Judge President John Hlophe sentenced him to seven life terms, plus forty years direct imprisonment. The sentences are to run concurrently.
Sedumedi, a security guard, pleaded guilty to 21 of 23 charges which included eight of rape, four of murder, robbery with aggravating circumstances, assault and kidnapping. Two of the charges were withdrawn.
In a plea and sentence agreement, Sedumedi described how he came upon his victims, admitting most were “random”.
Many were young jobseekers, and Sedumedi approached them under the pretext that he knew of job opportunities.
