Justice Prevails For The Family Of The Late Lucky Dube

A judge sentenced three men convicted of murdering an internationally known South African reggae star in a botched carjacking to life in prison Thursday.
Lucky Dube’s 2007 killing drew worldwide attention to crime in South Africa, which has one of the world’s highest murder rates.
Sifiso Mhlanga, Mbuti Mabe and Julius Gxowa were convicted Tuesday in Dube’s death. Hours before the verdict was announced, Mabe and Mhlanga assaulted police officers in a foiled bid to escape from the court.
Thokozani Dube, who was in the car when his father was shot, broke into tears as the sentences were announced and was comforted by his mother. Later, family members and their supporters gathered outside the courthouse and sang South Africa’s national anthem.
Dube, who launched his career in the 1980s with criticism of the apartheid regime, went on to become a huge international star. He recorded more than 20 albums and shared stages with the likes of Michael Jackson, Peter Gabriel, Ziggy Marley and Sting.
