2 more in court for Chanelle killing

2011-11-18 12:06

Pretoria - Another two men appeared in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on Friday in connection with the recent murder of a young mother in the Tshwane suburb of Faerie Glen.

This brings to five the number of men who have appeared in court for the murder of 26-year-old Chanelle Henning.

She was shot dead last Tuesday while driving home after dropping off her 5-year-old son at a pre-primary school in Manitoba Drive.

Andre Gouws and Willem Pieterse have been charged with murder, conspiracy to commit murder, unlawful possession of a firearm and illegal possession of ammunition.

The case against them was postponed until Wednesday, when they will appear with Ambrose Monye, 37, Preshan Singh, 24, and suspended policeman Gerhardus Petrus du Plessis, 34.

Pieterse asked the court for a Legal Aid representative.

Suspects allege police assault


Monye and Singh appeared before Magistrate Maryke de la Rey on Friday.

They complained, through their legal representatives, on Thursday that they had been assaulted by the police.

During their appearance on Friday, they confirmed that they had been taken to see the district surgeon as was instructed by De La Rey.

De La Rey ordered that Pieterse, Singh and Monye be held in the Pretoria Central Prison.

Shortly after Henning's murder witnesses told the police that two men on a motorbike overtook her car and fired several shots. One hit her chest, fatally wounding her.

Her car continued moving for about 100 metres before crashing into a rock on the pavement.

Monye and Singh are expected to bring formal applications for bail on November 29. It is not clear whether the other three men will seek bail.

Cop confesses to shooting

On Wednesday, Gauteng deputy police commissioner Major-General Nobesuthu Masiye said Du Plessis had confessed to being the one who had "pulled the trigger".

She said Du Plessis, a detective constable stationed at the Hercules Police Station in Pretoria, had handed himself over to the police on Monday night.

He had been suspended two weeks before the Faerie Glen shooting for allegedly stealing two murder dockets.

The Beeld newspaper reported on Friday that a 20-year-old man appeared in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on Thursday for stealing the weapon that was allegedly used to kill Henning.

According to the report, Deon Schoeman was alleged to have stolen the gun in February before apparently selling it. It was not clear to whom he sold the weapon.

      I thought for a second you were talking about our Gov.

      Cy - 2011-11-18 13:01

      @johnnybgood I give you one guess what happened, he was found not guilty as it was proofed that he acted in self defense! Some food for thought!!!!

      Cy - 2011-11-18 13:08

      @Tshifhiwa Why do you say it is not ayoba! The government want this country to transform in sports and at the workplace, why can't the criminals also transform! But yes as you say, may they rot in jail!

      aai @CY...your spelling leaves much to be desired! *excuse me while I go back to rolling my eyes at you*

      Hasane - 2011-11-18 15:27

      Yes they may rot in jail but this story is making headlines in the media because she is white, our fellow black sister had been the vactims of similar modus operandi but they were not in media like this one. this is not fair.

      Tshifhiwa - 2011-11-18 17:41

      @Hasene, if we don’t come forward with info what can the media do? Example Mashobane a.k.a King of bling was worshiped in the townships, people knew how he gets his wealth but they never reported him to the authorities and you want to blame that on Media? Think again my man.

  • Sonja - 2011-11-18 12:28

    It will all come down to one thing...Andre Gouws a friend of Mr Nico Hennig for 20 years, then who gave him the instructions to kill Chanelle, it makes one wonder who was the brain behind the madness....may they all burn in hell, and be tortured in jail for the rest of their living years...No Bail, No Parole only Life sentence forever!

      Robbie - 2011-11-18 12:40

      Sonja-there was no brain behind this madness. If you want to do something criminal-DO IT ALONE. If more than one person knows about it then you are going to get caught!!!

      Fred - 2011-11-18 12:54

      I agree with your sentiments except I may point out there is no such places as heaven and hell. Nice idea but pure bronze age myth. This is the 21st century, we now now the earth is not flat and that the Earth moves around the Sun and that germs cause disease.

      Frik - 2011-11-18 13:02

      @Fred - So! How would you define it then?

      Fanie - 2011-11-18 13:12

      Se ek ook

      Frik - 2011-11-18 13:27

      @Cy - You should become a writer!

      Cy - 2011-11-18 13:30

      @Sonja Think a bit, how does a love triangle sound to you (chanell, her husband and Andre), maybe chanelle cheated on her husband with Andre or her husband cheated on her with Andre, maybe thats the reason for the divorce. Maybe chanelle broke up with Andre, he got mad and hired people to kill her, or maybe the divorce effected her husband and Andre's love relationship so much that her husband broke up with Andre and as Andre felt it is chanelle's fault he hired people to kill her. All of these excludes the husband as the masterbater behind the murder. I can go around and provide at least 12 other scenarios which will exclude the husband from die murder. Andre has been in custody for a while now, don't you think if the husband was the masterbater they would have arrested him already, they only say "due to the sensitivity of the case at this stage as more arrests are expected, they can't provide the motive for the killing". Maybe her husband is also a target, maybe thats the reason he asked family friends to look after his son, so that his son is save, if he is attacked so that his is son is not in the way and also be killed. Maybe the husband was the actual target maybe due to a business deal gone bad between him and his friend or somebody else and chanelle was just the first target. Think about it before you jump to unproven conclusions. btw, I don't say her husband is not guilty, it is possibe that he is the masterbater, but also he is maybe not the masterbater.

    Scum, taking a life for money, no bail let them suffer!!!!

  • Lee - 2011-11-18 12:32

    I am telling you now that the ex husband is behind this. He arranged it all.

      Robbie - 2011-11-18 13:03

      Well done Lee!!!

      Cy - 2011-11-18 13:31

      prove it then if you are so sure!!!!!!

      jo.dovey - 2011-11-18 19:29

      Quite right, it will eventually come to light

      Herman - 2011-11-19 00:16

      Go Sherlock!

  • Andre - 2011-11-18 12:34

    I forgot to mention, they take an innocent life & want to complain about being assaulted, !!

      Cy - 2011-11-18 13:32

      Who says she was innocent, the cops haven't even given the motive of the killing yet due to the sensitivity of the case at this stage as more arrest are expected.

      thomas.mazibisa - 2011-11-18 13:46

      who wouldn't assault a suspect in such a case? I would

  • Lee - 2011-11-18 12:35

    Ambrose Monye is a friend of the ex husbands on facebook.

      Cy - 2011-11-18 13:50

      mmm, have been on the husbands facebook page as soon as it was annouced who the organisers were and no, Ambrose monye was not one of her husbands friends. I don't even think Ambrose Monye is even on FB. I checked Andre Gouws fb page also and he ain't friends with a Ambrose either. Do you even know what you are talking about making false allegations. If the andre gouws on chanelles husband fb page is the andre who was caught, he looks like if he maybe a druggie and maybe part of oggy dealings. Who knows, maybe a business deal between the husbnd and andre went bad and this was to get him back, or a business deal between the husband and one of andre's other doggy friends...who knows.

    This is a seriously a tragic event, because there are no winners.This woman lost her life and their child has to do without his parents.Very sad affair indeed.

  • CharlM - 2011-11-18 13:42

    How many grown men does it take to kill a young mother of a 4 year old boy? 5 and counting, and none of them should get away with it. Pathetic bunch of losers.

  • Whitemouse - 2011-11-18 14:23

    What did Chanelle know? That is why she go killed!

  • Lee - 2011-11-18 15:11

    @Cy you seem to have something to say about a few comments made on here. If I have a strong "gut feel" that the ex is involved I'm entitled to do that and the court can prove what happened, I'm only betting on what I feel. I got the info about Ambrose Monye being a friend on his facebook from other sources. Also, like even a death of someone who is on facebook, that person gets removed or blocked and I can only think it's to stop people like you trying to view their profile. I note you can make many comments on here and say what you feel but all else just seem to get @?? from you. Who made you God on this site.
