Known as the "Donnybrook Serial Killer," Zikode murdered 18 people and attempted to murder another 11 over a period of two years in the rural Natal midlands town of Donnybrook in South Africa. All his victims were between 20 and 30. His modus operandi was to kick open the door of his victims' house, shoot the men in the head and drag the women to nearby plantations, where he would rape them repeatedly - sometimes for as long as five hours - and kill them. If they resisted he would shoot them first and commit necrophilia. Sometimes he would attack women from behind in footpaths in the area. Mhlengwa, 21 was arrested on September 29, 1995.
On January 7, 1997, a High Court judge sentenced 23-year-old Zikode (23) to 140 years in prison, including five life sentences for a six-month rape and murder rampage. The judge said during sentencing that Zikode had absolutely no regard for human life and his attitude to women was "contemptible," and found it unnecessary to review the "gory details" of the case. Zikode was convicted on 21 charges, including eight murders, five rapes, five attempted murders and one indecent assault, between April and September 1995.
The judge noted "with dismay" that ZIKODE was arrested for the first time in July 1995 for the attempted murder of Beauty ZULU. While on bail he committed five more offences - two attempted murders, housebreaking with intent to rape and murder.

Als "Donnybrook Serial Killer" ermordete ZIKODE in einem Zeitraum von 2 Jahren 18 Menschen in Südafrika und versuchte 11 weitere zu töten. Alle Opfer waren zwischen 20 und 30 Jahre alt. Sein Vorgehen war brutal & kaltblütig: Er trat die Tür eines Haus ein, erschoß den Hausherren, zerrte die Frau auf ein nahegelegenes Feld, vergewaltigte sie mehrmals und erschoß sie ebenfalls. Wenn die Gegenwehr zu groß war, erschoß er die Frauen zuerst und verging sich an den Leichen. Einige der Opfer wurden auch auf Feldwegen von hinten angefallen.
Mhlengwa ZIKODE war 21 als er am 29. September 1995 festgenommen wurde.
Am 7. Jänner 1997 verurteilte ihn der Oberste Gerichtshof zu 140 Jahren Haft in 21 Fällen, darunter 8 Morde, 5 Vergewaltigungen, 5 Mordversuche zwischen April und September 1995.
Der Richter betonte nochmals sein Unbehagen darüber, daß ZIKODE im Juli 1995 zum ersten Mal wegen des Mordversuchs an Beauty ZULU verhaftet worden war und während seiner Zeit auf Kaution fünf weitere Attacken verübte - zwei Mordversuche, Einbruch mit der Absicht zu vergewaltigen und zu morden.
