Kebble killer surrenders guns

2012-03-17 12:36

Johannesburg - Brett Kebble's self confessed killer handed all his firearms to police just three months after being issued with new gun licences, according to a weekend report.

Mikey Schultz and Nigel McGurk were issued with five and four gun licences respectively in 2011, despite confessing to the 2005 murder, the Saturday Star reported.

Police spokesperson Captain Dennis Adriao said Schultz voluntarily surrendered his weapons at the Sandton police station on Friday "pending the outcome of an investigation" in to how he was re-issued new gun licences.

Adriao would not comment on McGurk's case, according to the newspaper. The two, who claimed Kebble's killing was an assisted suicide, handed in their guns after they were arrested.

They were given indemnity from prosecution to testify against drug trafficker Glenn Agliotti, the man who allegedly masterminded Kebble's murder.

Agliotti was eventually acquitted.

      Just shows how responsible the directorate of fire-arms is, I really think this government should hand over now to the DA and avoid embarassment.

      @ Africa "What is this country coming to ??" When the directorate of firearms will issue 9 gun licences to two self-confessed murderers....

    Why didn't kebble just commit a suicide instead of damaging our country's image first...

      John - 2012-03-17 14:35

      Silly of him... trying to compete with out politicians. He should have left the damaging our country's images to the ANC and Juju. They are better at it.

    People get away with murder by using the indemnity law. The police should do better detective work and refer from giving people indemnity.

      Didn't Jackie Selebi help here he was good friends with Agliotti and being the Police Commissioner and Head of Interpol he must have had the say in the indemnity ?!

    who do they know?

  • Johann Eloff - 2012-03-17 13:22

    At least there are others that also know how to beat the system...thought it was a bit of a one sided affair with all the high profile non-whites getting away with all types of criminal activities.

    @Dries. If you dont know anything then keep quiet. Police cant give indemnities. Onley the court IF the magistrate except it. THEN the detectives MUST do it. NOT by choice. Understand?

      Ben - 2012-03-17 13:40

      Let me guess.... you a policeman?

      Kevin - 2012-03-18 10:52

      Why were they all given indemnity. Give 1 and nail the other murderers.

    @Adam: The people in government cannot be embarassed. They do not posses the ability to experiance that emotion.

  • Benita - 2012-03-17 15:56

    Can they be left in peace

  • Ryan - 2012-03-17 17:48

    So you get 2 people who admit to killing someone...and then both get indemnity if they testify against the mastermind of the murder..who then also gets off! This is a cover up by top people high up!!! Unreal..and unjust! But remember God is not bent, bribed or fooled..and judgement will be given..both in this lifetime, and the next.

      TheJaydedKing - 2012-03-17 20:36

      Feel the same way.

  • Kevin - 2012-03-18 10:50
