Zinhle Maditla

Zinhle Maditla faces possible multiple life sentences after pleading guilty to premeditated murder of her four children. Maditla admitted to feeding her four children rat poison. 8-year-old Minenhle Maditla, 6-year-old Blessing Maditla, 4-year-old Shaniqua Maditla and 11-month-old Ethan Maditla were found wrapped in blankets on December 30, 2018. Maditla had allegedly discovered the father of two of her children with another woman. A pre-sentencing report says the 25-year-old may have been stressed about how she would take care of her children as a single and unemployed mother of four.
