gavel thumb100 TimesLive reports that a man who murdered his company's human resources manager in an attempt to evade a disciplinary hearing has failed in his attempt to have a life sentence reduced.  

Judge Thoba Poyo-Dlwati rejected Buhlebuyeza Majola's appeal against his sentence‚ telling the Pietermaritzburg High Court on Friday that the life term imposed by the Mtunzini High Court was correct.  Majola‚ who worked at Bell Equipment in Richards Bay‚ recruited Sibusiso Majola and together they went to Zenzele Nxumalo's home on 5 August 2011 where they killed him with semi-automatic firearms.  Majola executed the murder plot the day after Nxumalo told him he faced disciplinary proceedings for having been absent without leave.  The court found that killing Nxumalo only for performing his duties was an aggravating factor.
