Dad hunts down daughter's killers

2012-04-19 10:48
Cape Town - It took the father of a murdered teenager only five days to find the three men who killed his daughter.

Vusimuzi Silwanyana, 42, a trained soldier, told the Daily Voice that he had lost faith in the police’s ability to find the killers of his daughter.

Pretty Nontombi Jonginamba, 14, was hacked to death in her mother's home in Gugulethu last week.

When police seemed to make no headway in finding the killers, Silwanyana travelled from Durban and started his own investigation in Cape Town.

Silwanyana said there was a lot of talk in the community about the murder, and he asked residents for help.

He was then contacted by a woman who said she had information, which led to the arrest of one of the men.

The suspect was taken to police where revealed that the murder had been a robbery gone wrong, and that she was killed so she could not identify them.

Two more men were later arrested.  

They are due to appear in court on Thursday.
