AREA CODE - COURT ROOM - Tshepo Mohapi

The death of an unborn child will not be considered murder in the South African criminal law.

This is according to Attorney, Tshepo Mohapi, as he shared his views on VOW FM’s Area Code show this morning.

His views come as the sentencing proceedings in the trial of Ntuthuko Shoba, for the murder of Tshegofatso Pule in 2020, will resume in the Gauteng High Court in Johannesburg tomorrow. He further stated that one needs to be born alive in order to be a victim of murder.
