However, since the death penalty in South Africa had been declared unconstitutional in 1995, Sithole was sentenced to 2,410 years in prison, with no possibility of parole for at least 930 years. Clearly, the sentence meant to keep Sithole behind bars for the rest of his life.
Sithole was incarcerated in the maximum-security section of Pretoria Central Prison, the highest-security cellblock in South Africa, known as C-Max.
