Mkhwanazi was found guilty of killing University of Johannesburg (UJ) student Palesa Madiba in 2013. 

Madiba went missing in 2013. Her body was found two years later in a shallow grave at a house in Phiri.

Mkhwanazi lived in a back room of the property owned by his family.

Before his arrest last year, his family had obtained a protection order against Madiba's family to prevent them from going to their house in an attempt to locate her body.
