Kotzé explains brutal attack to police

2012-01-13 12:24

Modimolle - Johan Kotzé told police during questioning over the severe assault on his estranged wife that he just wanted to "hurt her a little bit", it emerged on Friday.

A source close to the investigation, who wanted to remain anonymous, said Kotzé had told the police what he apparently did to the woman.

"It is unreal what he did. It scares one," the source told Beeld.

Kotzé apparently pointed out various things to the police on Thursday.

Last Tuesday Kotzé allegedly forced three men hired as gardeners to rape the woman in his Church Street home. He allegedly also assaulted her. Pieces of her breasts were apparently cut off and sharp objects were used to pierce her silicone breast implants.

Kotzé allegedly also shot and killed his stepson, Conrad Bonnette, 19, after phoning him and asking him to come to the house to "discuss something".

Court


Kotzé lived in his Toyota Fortuner for eight days in a wooded area barely two kilometres outside Modimolle while police were searching for him all over the country. He lost some of his teeth when he crashed into a thorn tree near his hide-out on Tuesday night.

He was transferred from the Modimolle police cells to the Bela-Bela police cells on Wednesday night.

Limpopo police spokesperson Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi said Kotzé was moved for security reasons.

He appeared along with one of his suspected accomplices in the Modimolle Magistrate's Court on Friday. The case was postponed to February 10.

The 42-year-old suspected accomplice was arrested in Hammanskraal outside Pretoria on Wednesday morning. A second suspect was arrested on Friday morning.

Dirk van der Merwe, the man who called police to arrest Kotzé, said that when the fugitive arrived at his home at about 11:45 on Wednesday, he looked weary and dishevelled. "He asked me whether he could shower, but I said I would go and make some coffee, and then phoned the police.

"Many things go through your mind. I didn't know whether he might shoot me," said Van der Merwe, a dental technician.

Two detectives arrested Kotzé "quietly", Van der Merwe said.

Kotzé's hair was unkempt, and he had many cuts and scratches on his legs. He was wearing a khaki shirt and shorts and slip-slops and his feet were covered in dirt.

His estranged wife is still in a place of safety. "She is relieved and very, very glad that he has been caught. She is calmer now, but still crying a lot," said a close female friend

Daughter 'broken'

Meanwhile, Beeld reports that Kotzé's 16-year-old daughter from a previous marriage, who attends school in Bloemfontein, is said to have defended her father.

"He's still my hero, no matter what he has done," the girl told a family friend shortly after her father was arrested on Wednesday.

"She is broken and will have to receive counselling after everything that's happened. He's still her father," said the family friend, a woman who has asked not to be named.

The girl apparently visited her father regularly in Modimolle. A photo on her Facebook profile shows Kotzé giving her a kiss on the cheek.

    As for the daughter "he's still my hero" - think she needs professional help!!! This man is a monster!!!!

      Betweenuandme - 2012-01-13 12:44

      She's 16 years old, still a child. Give her a break.

      Lana-May - 2012-01-13 12:50

      rather give het a psycho analysis....

      procold2 - 2012-01-13 12:54

      We see him as a monster and with this act of violence proves to a sane person that he is but in her eyes it is her father and most likly never was vilent or unkind to her, my heart goes out to her.

      Lana-May - 2012-01-13 12:58

      I also feel sorry for the poor girl, but really, if your hero can do stuff like that..... ur a lil crazy...

      Yolande - 2012-01-13 12:59

      I have to agree to his one, that is very scary, you know what your dad did and still you see him as a hero, please please get that girl help, see needs it urgent

      Randomhero6661 - 2012-01-13 13:00

      i agree she is just 16 its not like she knew this was gna happen...imagine her life from here on out, judgement at every turn for what her father did. she don't need no analysis. More support i think...

      George - 2012-01-13 13:30

      Between, at 16 she should know the difference between a hero and a cowardly bastard sadist.

      Kyle - 2012-01-13 13:41

      Paul - f*off, you're not being smart or funny here

      Betweenuandme - 2012-01-13 13:49

      @Lana-May: She probably does need treatment - but that's not her fault. It's a bit mean to call her crazy.

      Newsmonger - 2012-01-13 13:54

      @ PAUL here have a banana!

      Moi - 2012-01-13 13:59

      She's a child. Also, we have no idea what kind of relationship she has with her father? Could be brainwashed for all we know.

      Janice - 2012-01-13 14:07

      IM SURE PAUL IS THE FOURTH SUSPECT!!!!!

      Kyle - 2012-01-13 15:16

      People she is a child coming to terms with her world being cut out from under her. Cut her some slack, she dont know her life story other than this incident so please dont judge her for something that is far beyond her control or understanding

      angelanell7 - 2012-01-13 15:23

      Dogtertjie word groot! As jou pa in staat is tot sulke wreedaardige vieslike gedrag, kan daar geen liefde in hom wees nie, so jy kan erken jys lief vir jou pa, maar om te sê hy's jou hero maak nie saak wat hy doen nie... jy is naief en moet vinnig grootword, 16jaar oud is nie meer baba nie, hou op dink soos 'n baba!

      trix.duvenage - 2012-01-13 17:05

      Olive: Any case has more than one side. There is nobody anywhere on this forum [on any one of the various artcles on it] that asks: What went wrong in this relationship? I believe either something drasticalle went wron, or alternatively there is something very wrong in this guys top storey.... But since nobody asumingly KNOWS what exactly happened, how can we all just jump on his head? I'm just speculating. What must a woman do to get a man as far as to do this to her and then: What part in this was played by the murdered boy? To me this whole case smells of something other than what we all think.... But...maybe I am wrong...maybe some people are just half sick in the head to [for no reason what so ever] simply kill a boy and torture his mother.....

      Kyle - 2012-01-13 17:12

      @trix.duvenage - unless the women was in the process of cutting off his balls there is nothing that justifies his behaviour, and trying to find some justification just seem an attemtp to put a lighter spim on a horrible act.

      Marleen - 2012-01-13 17:53

      We don't even know if that's what the girl has said. They are quoting a family friend who chooses to remain unidentified. We don't even know if this person exists. Read carefully before believing anything the media says, their main objective is to make money, not to report facts.

      theO rAcLe - 2012-01-13 20:19

      At 16 she is still a child , she cannot and should not just abandon her father no matter what he did, its still her father, she only knows him that way....However for him let the prisoners go to town with him, let him suffer and think about what he has done every day for the rest of his miserable life..... I think he will kill himself shortly..Just Watch.

      Ken - 2012-01-15 20:16

      We don't know if his daughter was correctly quoted. He is her father and she loves her father. I think we should all show a bit of empathy towards all the victims. His daughter and a lot of other family and friends are all victims as well.

      isabel.porzio - 2012-01-16 09:10

      The apple does not fall far from the tree..... she should be evaluated before she reaches adulthood, she may just become the next "Mrs. Lorena Bobbitt".....

  • Alva - 2012-01-13 12:35

    Monster!

      Janice - 2012-01-13 16:44

      Hope you are referring to Paul!!!!!

      Juan - 2012-01-13 20:07

      Paul you are a sicko, you need help, seriously

  • dlawre30 - 2012-01-13 12:38

    There is something seriously wrong with this guy. Cannot control his emotions at all. I hope that they throw the book at him, murder, assault and everything thay can think of. He will probably claim insanity or something and try to get of lightly.

      Vaaldonkie - 2012-01-13 15:40

      You watch too much Television.

  • Gerhard - 2012-01-13 12:39

    He explained it? There is nothing to explain. This was a brutal attack by a savage. He must be strung up. BRING BACK THE DEATH PENALTY! This thing does not belong in modern society.

      Vaaldonkie - 2012-01-13 15:40

      LOL, he probably thought the police would go "Oh, okay then, you're free to go. Sorry for the inconveniece."

      Squeegee - 2012-01-13 16:09

      Guys, this guy is a rapist and murderer, do you actually expect a word of truth out of his mouth? Dream on...

  • Pieter - 2012-01-13 12:40

      penelope.greer - 2012-01-14 19:20

      No, big Bubba is waiting for him LMAO

  • Lana-May - 2012-01-13 12:44

    He is still my hero?? Whats wrong with that girl? She must have her father's pea brain!

      Theresa - 2012-01-13 12:48

      I doubt if she even grasps the severity of her father's actions.Maybe it will sink in later.

      Lana-May - 2012-01-13 12:55

      He let 3 men rape his wife and cut pieces of her breats off.... and then he killed his stepson..... what is not to understand??

      Yolande - 2012-01-13 13:04

      I asked that question too BUT your mom and dad will always be your parents, and he probably never harmed her BUT at 16 you do understand enough and knows what it means to get raped and killed. You cannot see your own dad as a hero after doing that to someone. I think this girl is in shock and will at some stage relies that her dad is not well at all and I think the sooner they get professional help for her the better

      elspeth.hassall - 2012-01-13 13:57

      The child's comment is just a natural, impulsive reaction...leave her be...reality will come soon enough. I sincerely hope she will be receiving councelling from an expert in these matters. Please leave her and her feeling out of this. Thanks

      Johncarlos Cynical Biza - 2012-01-13 14:10

      She's just a victim of culture. Conservative cultures, whether Zulu or Afrikaans, teach kids to be emotionally subservant to their parents even when their parents' actions are morally wrong. Pseudo-Sociology 101.

      yola.me - 2012-01-13 16:01

      Dont e harsh to the little gal. She needs a lil it of councelling. Im sure she has great memories of her father hense he remains a hero.

      Squeegee - 2012-01-13 16:13

      Elspeth, finally, sanity prevails. She will still be hoping against hope that it is all one big mistake. Soon others will start with their conspiracy theories about his innocence and in years to come women will write him letters in prison, fall in love with him and proclaim his innocence. Mad, mad world.

  • Andriette - 2012-01-13 12:44

    Lock him up and throw away the key. I hope his daughter and everyone affected by this pig get the help they need

  • Jason - 2012-01-13 12:48

    So could he explain why he wanted those 3 c*nts to rape her, lemme guess just to hurt her a little... mmmmm Bubba will be hurting you a little you f*cken coward of a man!! I wish I could hurt you... JUST A LITTLE!!

      Richard - 2012-01-13 14:46

      Well said Jason ... I feel your anger. Despicable man !! Bubba and company will take turns on him, I hope!!

  • Peter - 2012-01-13 12:49

    This d@@s is probably used to getting what he wants all the time. I strongly suspect he was going to have her raped, shoot his stepson and then kill her as well. He was then hoping to leave the premises and stage the crime as being done by black criminals. Just my opinion, what a freak. The gang-rape he orchestrated is now probably going to happen to him in jail. Ironic, is it not.

      Sunett - 2012-01-13 13:32

      Ironic - and poetic justice. Kry vir jou, bliksem.

      Samuel - 2012-01-13 13:49

      Maybe jail is the only place where he can get a date

      Eric - 2012-01-14 09:30

      Yes, and it would be nice if his new found lover in prison is HIV positive

  • Peter - 2012-01-13 12:51

    His daughter either does not have all the gory details, or she is just like him - very concerning. Her life is going to be difficult from here on in.

      dumisiledee - 2012-01-13 13:07

      But she's better off without this scumbag of the father. Shame poor girl.

      heather.scheepers3 - 2012-01-13 14:31

      I quite agree an eye for an eye

      Ken - 2012-01-15 20:22

      Agreed. His daughter has just lost her Father and will always be referred to as "his Daughter" I feel very sorry for this young lady who should have our support.

  • SamuraiMama - 2012-01-13 12:51

    Poor, stupid daughter he has. You can hear she's still a snotkop kid.

      Ken - 2012-01-15 20:26

      You are a sad example of "humanity". He is her Father and she loves him. Support her, she is a victim. Don't punish her for what her Father is alleged to have done.

  • Nitro - 2012-01-13 12:53

    Hurt her a little bit??? Oh sure grinders, rape, and a gun don't hurt that much!!

  • Schmee - 2012-01-13 12:53

    His daughter is still probably in one of the stages of grief/shock. Denial is the first stage. She is definitely going to need professional help to work through this lot. One wonders how much poison he has fed her mind in the past.

      Yolande - 2012-01-13 13:07

      Thanks Schmee I have to agree with you, I said that a few times my heart is bleeding for this girls, she will very soon come to the conclusion what her father did is out of this world, they dont even use that in horror movies and then she will need all the help she can get and much more

  • Hendrik - 2012-01-13 12:55

    If only News24 and all the other media could try to get their story straight, then we might even one day REALLY get to know where and how he was arrested. (and what actually wasa done or not done) Who called the cops and why and where was he arrested? I can not readily recall any other crime reported on in this country ever that has had so many diffrent versions spewed out by the media. And then some stories just go away. When are we going to hear that the "mastermind" behind the "hit" on the Henning lady in Pretoria has been named and arrested? What has become of the case where a young girl, also in Pretoria was murdered and her hands/arms cut off. One suspect was arrested and released a few days later and NOTHING in the news after that?

      Clarissa - 2012-01-13 14:26

      Wait for the court case. During session all the technical details arise.

      Richard - 2012-01-13 17:36

      eish hendrik!

      Robi - 2012-01-13 22:02

      Yes Hendrik, Pretoria. Do not forget that Limpopo police are so effective and efficient in addressing issues in question. The way they approached the case until arrest very impressive. Differrentiate between Limpopo Police and Pretoria. Limpopo has more bushes with more informants. Gauteng less bushes with less informants

  • arlene.flynn3 - 2012-01-13 12:57

  • Gavin - 2012-01-13 13:15

    Children who have monsters as heroes, should be watched very closely. And as for hurting her just a little bit, this would've been accomplished by keying her car, burning her post or even just good old fashioned yelling. When you resort to stuff like he did, you take someones soul, put it in a bottle and throw it in the sea. The owner will never find peace again. I hope you come to know just how she felt when you take your first prison shower, and every one thereafter.

      Chum Scrubber - 2012-01-13 13:25

      I think what she is saying now should be ignored at this stage. I think it is just a defence mechanism, it is probably unbearable for her to believe that her father could do something like this. Speak to her again in a months time, she will likely have a different opinion, not a defence induced opinion. Must be hell for her right now.

  • MissGremlin - 2012-01-13 13:44

    Once again, I am alarmed that we are receiving so much detail on this matter. I am all for freedom of the press, but not to the point that the public are allowed to know prejudicial information. Why are the details of his police interviews being published. The public (no offence guys) are made up of bookkeepers and car salesmen and so forth, we, might want to know the details, but are not privvy to ALL of the detail, and so, our opinions are biased, uninformed, hurtful to the family and a slew of other problems. My point is this, I have an opinion on whether he is guilty or not, but it doesn't matter - because I am not the judge, I am not his attorney. Any comment to his punishment due, or mental state or whatever, is basically judging him in the court of public opinion. I don't condone his behaviour in any form or manner, but I do think (as I would for any other human being) that he has the right to a FAIR trial, and to explain (if possible) his actions.

      larisha.toffar - 2012-01-13 16:32

      I agree in some parts of your comment one of them being a fair trail- otherwise we will never know the truth, there is ALWAYS two sides to a story... still doesn't make it right.

      Cheryl - 2012-01-13 16:44

      Can you possibly think of any "side of the story" that he may give that would make what he did in any way even understandable? Do you even understand the act of rape and mutilation ? How can you make it acceptable

      Carol - 2012-01-13 19:03

      I SUPPOSE THE DEVIL MADE HIM DO IT.....GET REAL!

      TaniaSandraSteyn - 2012-01-14 01:03

      For once I don't agree with you. We are a society at the end of it's tether because people are getting away with murder every day. The courts are so congested that the powers that be don't even listen to the info at hand. Aside from that we have a lack of communication and understanding between the parties. The more publicity the case receives - the better the footwork.

      MissGremlin - 2012-01-16 09:26

      Again, let me be clear,I do not condone his alleged actions. No, I can not think of ANY reasonable explantion, should he be found guilty of his alledged actions. No, I don't think the devil made him perform his alleged actions, and yes I do fully comprehend the gravity of the alleged actions. Rape and mutilation are serious offences, and I NEVER said it was an acceptable form of behaviour. SO, with that out of the way, I need to clearly and eloquently point out, that frequently, in cases where there is massive media attention, and public outcry for hanging, lynching, burning and dismemberment - that the accused is often treated differently, (not always to the benefit of the VICTIM). He will be allowed to use the public outcry as a mitigating factor to getting bail, and being able to hide, his lawyers could happlily argue that the state are not able to guarantee his safety, because the public are baying for blood. His lawyers could happlily argue that he will not receive a fair trial, because the public have already formed an opinion, and it is impossible to find a judge who has not been exposed to the media outcry, and formed his own opinion. ALL of this, is to the detrement of the VICTIM. So, go ahead, scream for murder. You are actualy helping his cause.

  • zelna.oberholster - 2012-01-13 13:44

    Sadly he is still his daughter's father. The girl does not deserve a father like him. If you aren't able to be a great role model to your children, don't have them. No child should have to hear that her dad is a monster. But girl, how can he still be your hero? Did you grow up in some parrarel world where deeds like his are celebrated? Tch, as sorry as I am for you, I truly hope you were qouted out of context.

      Lana-May - 2012-01-13 15:19

  • Caroline - 2012-01-13 13:48

    There was a comment about wanting to leave the wife dead. He didn't want her dead - he wanted her to live, humitliated, mutilated, emotionally dead as she relives the sound of her brilliant son (7 distinctions at matric) pathetically begging for his life before having his brains blown out. Lets face it - her life is destroyed. I agree.. there are some miserable excuses of humanity that need to be shared with the public. I would start by draining his silicone balls with a blunt razor blade!! This man is beyond evil - he is Satan incarnate.

    I think that the daughter needs therapy right away. She is clearly unable to understand that her reverence is misplaced. He may be her hero as a Dad, but she needs to understand his failings as a human being ... soon ... before irreperable damage is done to her own psyche.

  • monique.coetzee - 2012-01-13 13:56

    You shouldn't try and justify the guys who raped this woman at the end of the day you have a choice okay. He is sick and should definitely receive the death penalty. The big problem in this country at the moment is the fact that some people don't see that if you do something wrong you deserved to be punished it is actually as simple as that that. If you shoot a man you commit murder, if you raped someone you are guilty and therefore you should be shown the error of your ways and pay for what you did. If you are held at gunpoint and they tell you okay if you don't stab your child, mother, brother, friend or who ever is there with you, I am going to kill you. You still have a choice! If you choose to furt the other person you are guilty as easy as that you still had a choice!! Like the guy who shot Diwani, a friend of mine actually argued that the man should go free because he was not guilty eventhough he admitted to it. She said he is a poor man from the township who needed money to feed his family so he had to kills her. He was corrupted by the man from another country. Who thinks like that!!! My god, he chose to kills that woman he could have said no. You can do other things for money.... People in this country need a wake-up call. Guilty is guilty! I don't care who you are

      monique.coetzee - 2012-01-13 13:57

      I'm saying Kotze should receive a death penalty just to clarify

      Betweenuandme - 2012-01-13 14:20

      @Monique: I agree mostly with what you say. But, when somebody threatens your life with a gun, chances are you'll probably follow orders. Kotze wasn't asking these guys to kill/rape their own family. A person's instinct is to survive so I'm not surprised they did what they were told.

      monique.coetzee - 2012-01-13 14:32

      I am aware of that but it still come down to choice! You can choose! And I won't be able kill or hurt another person like that, just shoot me and get it over with.. and so would half of society I am sure...anyway the ones with a conscious,,,

      Betweenuandme - 2012-01-13 14:39

      One's will to survive is very strong. It's not necessarily about one's conscience (when it's actually happening to you). Let's hope we never find ourselves in a situation like this because it's a choice between seeing our family again or doing as we're told and hurting someone. Horrible horrible situation.

    Here is the thing what does it have to do with anyone what exactly he did to her. In the old days when dinosaurs ruled the earth journalists didn't feel compelled to report every gruesome detail, especially of sexual attacks, and the older I get the better I think that is

    ...NEXT HE'S GOING TO SAY : "THE DEVIL MADE ME DO IT" ... don't they always ?

      Vastar - 2012-01-13 15:01

      No, he will say: "theth dethil made me do thit". Kotser has no front teeth,...remember...?

    This man is disgusting beyond belief

      TaniaSandraSteyn - 2012-01-17 23:44

      And many other men besides. Women are being abused in our Country every day - this case is extreme - similar things happen more often than we know, or want to know. Often in the suburbs. Don't ignore a cry for help.

    What was the motive? What ticked him off? Why? For how long? 3 sides to a story. Your side, my side and the truth. Not interested in the your side, my side, interested in the truth, News 24.

    FRANS To think that Jesus also died for this man on the cross is unthinkable. You are all right, as it is now, this man is destined for hell but the good news for him is that if he accepts Jesus Christ in his life as his saviour he will have the ever lasting life.Woh! What a Lord, how is that possible? How could he mix whith scum, would you say, indeed unbelievable.Bul remember he is GOD and there is no one like him.May He also tough your life this moment.

    Kotze the bloody savage, doesnt deserve jail - what so the tax payers can pay for his water, lights, accommodation and 3 meals a day for the rest of his life - I THINK NOT!!!! He deserves to be beaten within an inch of his life, let him heal and then start again - he can close his eyes when his organs finally fail - stupid PIG!!! And his daughter saying he is her HERO - WTF is she smoking???? Put that poor excuse of a man in the centre of JHB and tell everyone to bring a BIG BAT!!!!

      only thing then is it brings the folk who "deal out the justice" to the same level of depravity that this A Hole exhibited to his victims. Answer is one bullet to the brain thru the mouth, guarantees instant death to the turd , which is what you want not so?

  • Wikus - 2012-01-13 14:24

    I bet he will try to commit suicide. To get any sympathy he will have to be drastic.

      Vastar - 2012-01-13 15:04

      No, he will just have to play sick or terminally ill. Then he will get all the ANC's sympathy. He won't have to be drastic.

      Caroline - 2012-01-13 15:24

      This is what is most repulsive about him - after all this, he didn't even have the balls to blow his own brains out??!! If he was going to do it - he's had 8 days sitting in his car to do so - he is a despicable coward - hater of woman, children and you can bet animals. Let him live, he will be getting his just deserves - death is too quick, easy and good for him..

  • Sam - 2012-01-13 14:40

    Interesting, the victim said in her initial statement (and all others) that three men were forced at gun point, Kotze said he forced three man to rape his wife, the three man say they were held at gun point and forced to rape that woman. News 24 readers who were not even there say all people who were at the scene are lying, the three man raped that woman because the wanted to rape her.... I really like news 24 readers expect analysis, and their high level analysis. This really show how mature our readers are and they can't be fooled by some mumbo jumbo garden workers, rape victing and Kotze we want them all hanged including the victims

      Cheryl - 2012-01-13 16:52

      Agreed, it was one of the first things that occured to me.. apologies for being blunt but is it physically possible to be 'aroused' with your life in danger ie a gun pointed to your head. Not sure the body would co-operate. It would have to have been willing.? or am I missing something? guys?

      Lana - 2012-01-13 17:34

      Two wrongs does not make a right! You want to tell me that three (3) full grown men did not even try to over power him? When his son arrived they did not see the chance to get to him? Did they in ANY way try to help this poor woman? NO???? Did they go to the police station afterwards and hand themselves over because they were "victims"? NO??? Well then...why hide if you are innocent and can actually help by supplying info etc on what happened? One big messy set-up.

      frikdt - 2012-01-14 08:43

      Interesting, latest reports claim the three came from Hammanskraal of their own free will, even stopped along the way to buy pantyhose to pull over their heads. That, together with the fact that they disappeared after the crime, do not seem to support the "forced at gunpoint" theory.

  • justin.k.lavelle - 2012-01-13 16:19

    WTF! He need to go to jail for a very long time and be raped and sodomised and poked with sharp objects! I'm glad he was caught, but hope that there was no misconduct on behalf of the officers of the law which may jeapordise the case against him.

  • Julie - 2012-01-13 17:26

    I hope they will leave his teeth broken!

      zenzaleni - 2012-01-15 02:00

      indeed how true but consider the inmate population's rights to enjoy certain oral enjoyments but this dude's broken teeth will cause unnecessary suffering wont it lol

  • Siegfried - 2012-01-13 17:50

    No jail put him against the wall and shoot him, I will do it for free.

  • Chans - 2012-01-13 18:22

    The family is really stupid for making public what the daughter has to say, shut up and dont involve the young girl in her fathers brutal acts!!! Bloody hell!

      Ernst - 2012-01-13 18:55

      I agree, they threw her to the wolves! she is old enough to know what is right and wrong but emotionally she is only a child still. She is right, her dad is her hero. The reality has not dawned on her yet. Who are you (commenters) with all your witty remarks to suggest that she is like her father etc? I hope someone decide to take you people to court for defamation of character! How many of you said you want to do this or that to him, even shooting him yourselves! Does those comments reflect on your character?, then you are just like him! I rest my case!!!!!!

  • Ingi - 2012-01-13 18:55

    Kesaleteng & Spyker_May - Please don't agrivate this horrific, brutal, disgusting act by that savage Kotze by bringing animals into this. It's an insult to animals to be compared to such a revolting piece of scum!!!

  • Robi - 2012-01-13 19:46

    Freedom in SA is When the police protects the monster for satanic behavior. Why concerned about his safety whereas he violated human right, right to life and safety of others. To hell with security reasons and take him back where he committed the crime.

  • Japana - 2012-01-13 22:06

    Kotze, will study for a degree in prison, start a football team and get released after 3 years. Kotze, see you in 2015!
