The Judge described ex-sergeant James Imhalu as a “serial, trigger-happy policeman who is not allowed him to remain in society.”

“We thank God that justice is on the side of the family today.Although the wheel of justice continues to grind slowly, surely justice will come. It is unfortunate that the family lost theur father and bread winner, but this judgement today would give them some solace.”
