    Right, now hang him!

      lownabester - 2012-09-18 13:18

      And make it quick. I am not paying for his stay in jail.

      Rabbler.Rouser - 2012-09-18 13:19

      Unfortunately he won't get hanged in South Africa. So he must be jailed for life.

      @sebenza. your insensitive attempt at generalised irony is uncalled for. whites have gone to jail for criminal activity since the dawn of the legal system, and there is no misconception about our ability to become corrupt or violent, so dont pretend that we are ignorant.

      So Mr President, how are you going to handle this one?

      melinda.botha.75 - 2012-09-18 15:26

      hang the sick F

      Hallelujah! Now please lock this monster away forever - may he NEVER be placed in a position to do harm to any other innocent person again! My heart goes out to all those who have been harmed by him, including his wife and child!

    needs the cure,lethal injection and not by a needle, one in b#m and let him waste away hope he gets every disese possible and the correction service is slow on treatment.

  • marc.rule - 2012-09-18 13:05

    AN EYE FOR AN EYE. The punishment MUST be the same as the crime.

      judy.judge.73 - 2012-09-18 13:21

      He should die, but let the inmates have their way with him for a good while!

  • godesha - 2012-09-18 13:06

    It sure wasn't the tooth fairy that killed that poor girl. No community service for you this time round. May he spend the rest of his miserable live in jail.

  • truthis.tway - 2012-09-18 13:14

    Not everyone in prison is a rapist. Prison rape is a blight. Read about the 16 year old who was raped in prison. Your freedom is denied and society is protected. What a bunch of hypocrites.

      arthur.hugh - 2012-09-18 13:49

      What drugs are you on?

      truthis.tway - 2012-09-18 14:16

      You think prison rpae is cool then?

  • bond.ndalo - 2012-09-18 13:15

    life in prison is the way to go

      henk.vanrensburg.31 - 2012-09-18 13:23

      Nope, straight to the grave rather!

      bond.ndalo - 2012-09-18 14:55

      not in South Africa

      judy.judge.73 - 2012-09-18 15:47

      Life long rape in prison works for me

  • henk.vanrensburg.31 - 2012-09-18 13:22

    And so justice previals.....He must be executed!!!!! Preferable shot with a .22 in the back of the head. That will be the cheapest solution!

      arthur.hugh - 2012-09-18 13:49

      Not even a 2.2 - just a bolt gun.

  • margie.swanepoel - 2012-09-18 13:26

    Congratulations to all the police involved in this investigation, especially Peet du Toit. Job well done guys!

  • andriesmogomotsi.rantu - 2012-09-18 13:31

  • twist.cas - 2012-09-18 13:31

    The man is also guilty of rape, he intentionally burnt the body to hide evidence. Guilty as charged.Why did he burn the body if he did not rape the victim. Castrade him.....bloody dog.

      godesha - 2012-09-18 13:37

      Dogs don't rape. People do.

      judy.judge.73 - 2012-09-18 15:42

      Not to worry, his punishment for rape will be meted out in a very novel way by the inmates, may they indeed have acres of fun with him!

  • sonia.bloem - 2012-09-18 13:46

    Burn him!!!!

  • denis.dendrinos - 2012-09-18 13:52

    Bye Bye sicko......... Maybe cos he's white the government will allow the death penalty, cos he deserves it! On second thought.....

  • siyanda.yeni.5 - 2012-09-18 14:30

    As an attorney myself,i always knew the state's case with regard to the rape charge against \Sunday Rapist\ was too weak for them to sustain a conviction! Victory for the defense council!

      godesha - 2012-09-18 15:16

      Only because he burnt her body. I take it you are a defense attorney.

  • hloniphile.fakazi - 2012-09-18 15:08

    Death penalty should be brought back!!! He really deserve it!

  • jenny.vaughan.129 - 2012-09-18 16:48

    He will make someone a good submissive wife in jail. I just hope Papa is a big insatiable man. Let fear and pain rule his life. Nowhere to run to.
