Lucky Dube Murderers Get Life In Prison
Dube, 43, was killed in a botched carjacking in October 2007. Dube recorded more than 20 albums and had shared a stage with Sinead O'Connor, Peter Gabriel and Sting.
The High Court in Johannesburg also sentenced Sifiso Mhlanga, Julius Gxowa, and Mbuti Mabe to 15 years each for their attempted robbery of Dube's car, SAPA said. They were found guilty earlier this week.
The singer won over 20 awards locally and internationally. His first album, released in 1984 with the title "Rastas Never Die," was banned by South Africa's apartheid government.
South Africa has one of the world's highest rates of violent crime, with frequent murders, rapes and carjackings.
