Cannibal gets 18 years

A black man who ate his murdered victim’s heart has been sentenced to 18 years in prison in the Western Cape High Court.

Thirty-five-year old Andrew Chimboza pleaded guilty to killing 62-year-old Mbuyiselo Manona, in Gugulethu in 2014. He denied eating his heart.

Chimboza stabbed his victim in the neck with a fork during an argument and stabbed him several times with a knife.

Sentencing got underway in the Western Cape High Court on Wednesday morning.

Judge Ashley Binns-Ward read through the horrific evidence led during the trial before handing down the sentence.
