Pretoria woman's gory murder condemned

2012-08-14 15:51

Johannesburg - Politicians voiced their condemnation on Tuesday of the murder of a Soshanguve woman, allegedly set alight by her husband.

The department of women, children and people with disabilities said Agnes Ramagoshi, 45, was doused with petrol by her husband before being set alight.

"We urge the law-enforcement agencies to do everything in their power to ensure that Ramagoshi and other victims of crime get justice," Women's Minister Lulu Xingwana said in a statement.

The Sowetan website reported that the attack happened in June following an argument between the married couple.

Agnes Ramagoshi was seriously injured and her husband, Matthew "Mateu" Ramagoshi, 50, was arrested and charged with assault.

However, the charge was changed to murder, following her recent death as a result of her burns.
Gauteng Legislature Inkatha Freedom Party leader Bonginkosi Dlamini also decried the attack.

    OMG! Is there some sort of f'ed up competition out there to see who can commit the most deplorable and heinous crimes?? Vermin should be killed on sight.

      Well said Kala...This news does not seem to get better and continues in its various shocking forms !

      koos.vandermerwe.75 - 2012-08-14 15:59

      Agreed.

      tuco.angeleyes - 2012-08-14 16:22

      POliticians should just rather shut the f&*k up and not say a damn word , they all condone the insane crime levels by virtue of the fact that they have the resouces and ability to change laws to severly punish/put to death monsters like this, AND DO NOTHING! They are quick to pass laws that punish eToll evaders, tax evaders, smokers, driving whilst on a cell but REAL issues such as this are always side lined.

      @leonardb1 ... You said it chum. It shows we who bear the blunt of the tax basis are of no consequence.

      husaberg.twostroke - 2012-08-14 21:50

      Jeeezz what a monster of a person to do such a thing. Is it the latest fashion in the new South-Africa to commit murder.

      delish7564 - 2012-08-15 07:48

      @Alicia. Yes, I tried too :(. Is it just me, but I don't recall these same politicians condemning the shooting of the mother yesterday. A killing is a killing regardless of who the victim was, race should not come into it!!!!!

    What is the ratio of psychopaths per hundred thousand in South Africa? Must be one of the highest in the world. Rest in peace Agnes, no one can harm you now.

      kevin.pitzer - 2012-08-14 16:03

      @Emile.....Now thats an interesting question as I am sure that given the gory things we all read here on News 24 that the stats wont shock us !

      lacrimose.wolf - 2012-08-14 19:57

      An excellent question. Our never-mentioned mental health crisis that is like the hungry caterpillar, slowly chomping its way through all layers of society

    Poor women. RIP

  • andre.vandeventer.16 - 2012-08-14 16:22

    There is no fear of the law in SA because more criminals are outside prison than inside, Bring back the death penalty and all will be solved. Rgere is no justice in justice!

  • lerato.motshana - 2012-08-14 16:29

    Any kind of murder, abuse must be condenmed, no human being is must ever go through anything as close as this. is time that human lives are respected. SA is not safe for everyone,only our politicians (fraudsters)and this murderers and rapists must remain in this country, clearly they are the only safe people here.

  • craig.lowe.3572 - 2012-08-14 16:33

    WHAT ABOUT THE FARMERS WIFE, WHY SO LITTLE NOISE ABOUT THAT, THE TOTAL INACTIVTY OF THE POWERS TO BE WOULD MAKE ONE WONDER WETHER THEY ARE NOT ASSESORIES AFTER THE FACT, AS GUILTY OF THE CRIME AS THE ACCUSSED, MAYBE A CLASS ACTION AGAINST SAID POWERS, BE SHOULD BE INVESTIGATED, THE TIME OF AVOIDING RESPONSIBILITY WITH SILLY WORDS MUST END NOW OR WE ARE ALL DOOMED

      mihaip007 - 2012-08-14 16:40

      the reason for the low noise is because of the CENSORSHIP on NEWS24 - my comments were all removed because I pointed out that the article pertaining to the murder of that mother did NOT mention the colour of the murderers! So I have a new term for those murderers: Article-Colourless

      mihaip007 - 2012-08-14 16:40

      but we all know the colour

      mihaip007 - 2012-08-14 16:45

      that is because we have some dumb F#$$#s that like to lick some anc arses by removing our comments out! OR because they like to portray a different picture to the world out there! The one where the white minority is the evil one! Why do they not mention the colours in the other articles of the murderers? They were QUICK on the beard one!

      BigChiefPlumbPudding - 2012-08-14 16:53

      The small minded racist trolls can't bare the truth. If you don't want comments, then please close all the public comments pages. Idiots.

      if you asked me, we should get out there in force, 'cause this is REALLY getting out of hand! Petitions - hmmm good idea in a CIVILISED country! Ours is DESPICABLE! just like the anc and the spear at the helm!

  • thabogerald.molobi - 2012-08-14 17:13

    People must stop commenting if they think that their racist comment do not hurt others,murder is murder regardless of race or colour.

  • johan.vermeulen.127 - 2012-08-14 17:19

    Dear politicians - do you know how many white Farmers are burnt to death with irons and hot water?

  • thabogerald.molobi - 2012-08-14 17:22

    We all have problems but killing someone is barbaric and the bastard must be stoned to death too,idiot.

  • mike.jankelowitz - 2012-08-14 17:40

    Everyone deplores these heineous criminal murders but the authorities who can make the difference dont care as long as they are making money, taking money and living a good life. What about the woman in Pretoria who was shot by the 3 scumbags who stole her car? Should that also be decried by the politicians? Or perhaps that is okay because it was only a white woman. I deplore all these vicious attacks on women and children no matter the colour. Funny how SARS works so well and yet the police abnd justice departments are failing miserably. Is it because there is no money for the thieving politicians to lay their grubby paws on? Perhaps SA should have an incentive bonus, for every single murder that takes place in our country, their salaries must be reduced. That way, at the end of the year, they will have to refund the people of South Africa for the misery they are not stopping. Come on MR President, get off your backsde and make this country safe for us. Or do you want to be remembered as the useless most stupid President of all time? At this rate, you are fast heading for that title.

  • irene.buthelezi.1 - 2012-08-14 18:14

    Oh wow, all these silverback politicians come crawling out from under their rocks because it's a black woman that's killed but remain eerily silent about attacks and murders on whites. And you want me to respect this filth? N-E-V-E-R!

  • patricia.dewet.92 - 2012-08-14 19:34

    What about the women killed at her farm gate. Maybe that is not important.

  • Vince.York - 2012-08-14 20:24

    Tragically sick society the ANC have allowed to burgeon out of control, to have incidents of such horror among our citizens

  • Harold Chisimba - 2012-08-15 11:17

    ARE JAILS TOO FULL? OK,BRING BACK DEATH PENALTY OR LEGALISE MOB JUSTICE.

  • kgotlaetsile.mophuti - 2012-08-15 14:48

    The same goes to you white people when the story is about a white person being killed u fill news24 with hundreds of comments blaming black people but when a black person gets killed ud rather make jokes
