President Jacob Zuma visited the family home of slain Courtney Pieters on Wednesday. During his visit a plaque honouring Pieters' life was unveiled.

Three-year-old Courtney Pieters was raped twice before she was killed and buried in a shallow grave.

According to the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA), Courtney was the 19th child murdered in the Western Cape this year.

On Wednesday, Mortimer Saunders, 40, who is believed to have lived with the Pieters family, faced angry members of the public when he appeared in the Goodwood Magistrate’s Court on charges of murder and rape.
