Cape Town - Former 7de Laan star Pedro Camara's father finally received justice after his murderers were found guilty in the Worcester Magistrate court, reports Daily Voice.

Camara's father, Abel Camara, was shot dead at his Rawsonville bar in 2007.

Ashley Manukula, 22, Samora Manisi, 27, Thanduxo Khohlakali, 28, and Alie Mpumlo, 27, were arrested for the murder.
On Wednesday three of the four accused were found guilty (excluding Khohlakali) for murder and armed robbery.

Pedro, who played Carlos in the soapie, was happy that justice had finally prevailed.

According to the Daily Voice, the actor said: "This does not bring back my father. It was a brutal and senseless murder... I miss my dad terribly.

"The murder is so senseless and barbaric... he was a defenceless old man. I am glad the case has ended... it was hell," he said.

Sentencing is set to take place in August.
