Estcourt feud: accussed to know fate tomorrow

2010-05-13 00:00

ESTCOURT murder accused Mohamed Azeem Yunus (34), who is charged with the murder of Vinod Ramsarup and the attempted murder of Sarah Sathar and her daughter (8) in a drive-by shooting on the N3 on May 17, 2007, will know his fate tomorrow.

The case has its roots in an acrimonious feud between members of the Yunus and Sathar families in Estcourt, which erupted after Sarah and Asgur Sathar’s son, Shoaib, was charged with the murder of Yunus’s sister, Safia, in September 2005.

Yunus has alleged that he shot at Sarah Sathar in self-defence when he saw her pointing a silver firearm at him while they both drove along the N3.

Sathar, who was shot 11 times, denies she was armed. She told the court her daughter suffered only a graze, but Ramsarup (a friend who was driving the bakkie she was in) was killed.
