Pitch Black Afro has been found guilty of culpable homicide by the Gauteng High Court in Johannesburg for the death of his wife, Catherine Modisane.
hulani Ngcobo, aka Pitch Black Afro who was facing charges of murder and defeating the ends of justice, appeared in Court on Thursday June 18.
Handing down his judgement, Judge J. Du Plessis said he could not find that the rapper intentionally killed his wife Catherine Modipane because both of them were heavily intoxicated on the day of her death.
Judge J du Plessis maintained the State did not prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Ngcobo had planned to kill his wife beforehand, according to the report.
“The accused is therefore found guilty of culpable homicide and not murder. He is found not guilty on count 2,” said the judge.
The rapper is expected back in Court on Friday, 19 June for his sentencing.
