Flabba’s girlfriend released on parole

Flabba’s girlfriend, Sindisive Precious Mangele, was released on parole today.

The Department of Correctional Services confirmed her release. “The Correctional Supervision and Parole Board, (CSPB took this decision) having assessed Manqele’s profile. It was submitted by the Case Management Committee and other material presented for parole consideration,” read the statement.

The court sentenced her to 12 years’ imprisonment for murder in 2015. According to the department, they decided based on Mangele’s positive support system. Her parole placement is also in line with Section 73 of the Correctional Services Act. The Act determines the minimum period of sentence that must be served before consideration may be granted for placement.

“Mangele takes responsibility for the offence she committed and is remorseful about it. She completed all the identified programmes as per her Correctional Sentence Plan. She also took part in the Victim-Offender-Dialogue in 2018.

“It is critical to highlight that parole placement is not the end of the sentence as Mangele will complete the rest of the sentence in the system of community corrections, whereby she is expected to comply with a specific set of conditions and will be subjected to supervision until her sentence expires on May 28, 2028.
