3 arrested for Corrie Sanders murder

2012-09-27 13:12

Johannesburg - Three people have been arrested in connection with the murder of Corrie Sanders, North West police confirmed on Thursday.

The suspects - one aged 19 and the others aged 20 - were arrested after police received information which led them to an address in Oukasie, an informal settlement near Brits.

Two were arrested at this address, and police confiscated a cellphone, vehicle key, purse and cash that were allegedly taken during the robbery on Saturday night in which Sanders was shot dead.

The third suspect was arrested at a different address.

The suspects will appear in the Brits Magistrate's Court on Monday on charges of murder and armed robbery.

    You see what can be achieved if you get off your butts.

      Well done SAPS!

      mantothieve.missingman - 2012-09-27 13:22

      No when the international arena eyes on you then the anc makes a plan fast.But a normal rax payer get killed they wont bother.

      mike.down.5492 - 2012-09-27 13:22

      Sebenza what are you insinuating you know who the culprits are? and it's not them....maybe you should hand yourself over to the police .

      john.kirkwood.9619 - 2012-09-27 13:23

      good work, i feel the complete opisite to sebenza, please assault them maybe they can be killed for escaping or something

      rbphiri - 2012-09-27 13:29

      Corrie...I knew you would win the final round. TKO for the 3 B@STARDS

      rbphiri - 2012-09-27 13:34

      They thought that they had the last punch...let's see human rounds their rear ends can take in prison.

      davy.crockett.5209 - 2012-09-27 13:36

      The police should be commended but we must give these poor guys leniency. They are products of a broken society and we should show compassion.

      aniken.vader.31 - 2012-09-27 13:40

      sebenza works for anc24 and that is why any comments that are as terrible as his do not get removed, but some of our do..!

      warren.vanwyk.3 - 2012-09-27 13:42

      @ davy.crockett.5209: I agree with you 100%, we should show them the same compassion they showed Corrie Saunders (& his family).

      danie.strydom.7 - 2012-09-27 13:47

      @ sebenza. You are the reason racism will never die. Why antagonize people on every thread you can. Why don't you go and get a job? Disrespecting comments on any thread where Corrie Sanders is mentioned shows your complete lack of understanding for this true hero. Not because of his colour my ignorant racist poephol, but because he died whilst protecting his family without thinking of his own safety. Like so many of your ignorant friends, do you even know who your father is? Or where all your children are? Close your zipper and start using your brains when making comments. Having balls doesn't mean you have to think with them all the time.

      klippies.coke.7 - 2012-09-27 13:48

      Ag Sebenza, you're just another white troll out to get negative attention. You give the human race a bad name. Hope you have a bad day :-)

      Willie - 2012-09-27 13:49

      If it's positive, let's not waste time,give free one ay tickets to China with luggages full of cocaine.Problem solved

      jonivdw - 2012-09-27 13:59

      Hey Guys, chill... Sebenza (van Rooy) is a white troll.... Don't let him get your knickers in a knot for his entertainment.

      shirley.steenkamp - 2012-09-27 14:02

      Hopefully the VERMIN commit suicide!!!!!!

      fussed.anderson - 2012-09-27 14:09

      @ sebenza Did you know that your father and mother are the same person????

      Ritz40 - 2012-09-27 14:09

      @sebenza hehe looks like Danie strike a cord, the truth is sometimes difficult to handle, maybe always in your case. Go find your father and ask him to teach you that real men respects other people and themselves!!

      anakin.skyvader.9 - 2012-09-27 14:19

      @davy.crockett.5209 - F**k you and your "ag shame" compassion. If they had stolen something we can replace I wouldn't be so peeved..where's the compassion for victims in this??!! WHY did they have to storm into the restaurant firing shots at everyone and anythinglike a bunch of wild barbarians?? Up yours.

      jonivdw - 2012-09-27 14:22

      Davy Crockett looks like another troll.... Check out some of his other comments!

      trevor.myburgh.12 - 2012-09-27 14:23

      Sebenza, may you rot in hell with your low life ancestors, this is once again an unnecessary killing which the ANC should take responsibility for

      DuToitCoetzee - 2012-09-27 14:28

      Sebenza who said the police "force false admission of guilt"? Maybe the people of Oukasie lift the suspects out because they are tired of crime. Did you red that they found some of the stolen stuff on them? Where does the police get it to "plant" it?

      jonivdw - 2012-09-27 14:29

      Don't feed the troll, he'll only come back for more! He's not real.....

      kobie.nel1 - 2012-09-27 14:46

      sebenza and davy.crocket. Please excuse the majority of commenters here, they are not the sharpest of the bunch, and obviously not able to second level thinking....or do some call it "satire". Admit, I also miss it sometimes if I'm pssst off.

      mukosit - 2012-09-27 18:02

      Warning: NOT TO BE READ BY SENSITIVE READERS First it was Lucky Dube, then Eugène Terre'Blanche and now Corrie Sanders, all assassinated by "illegal foreigners" (people from other countries without documents).

      husaberg.twostroke - 2012-09-27 20:50

      AWESOME SAP. Well done.

      preshen.govender.90 - 2012-09-27 21:22

      Big up to the Po-po

      john32 - 2012-09-28 12:01

      on news it states that the 3 are Zimbabweans! Foreigners nogal coming into our country and shooting and stealing what they want. Thanks SA government for lettong these %&*( into our country and shooting hero's and citizens of this country. You are great you *&^0 piece of ^&*( government.

      john32 - 2012-09-28 12:04

      the cause of Corrie Sanders death is the ANC government- they to useless to do security checks and cant control all the zimbo's that are dangerous from coming into this country !! the cANCer spreads

  • tinkerbell7 - 2012-09-27 13:15

    Good on the SAPS!!!

      rbphiri - 2012-09-27 13:30

      For once they were not at kfc, the greasy chickens are safe...for now.

      fredster.mania.5 - 2012-09-27 13:39

      That is why it is so important for the SAPS to have a good relationship with the community, well done

      maarten.slabbert.7 - 2012-09-27 18:50

      Anybody who still thinks of employing any of the foreigners should be locked up too. Rather give the work to real South Africans. South Africa for South Africans I say.

  • madise.paul - 2012-09-27 13:16

    What a good catch!

      rbphiri - 2012-09-27 13:42

      The three prosecuted b@stards means that it's gonna be an early christmas for the inmates in jail.

      patson.nedzamba - 2012-09-27 15:13

      In cases like these, one cannot entirely blame xenophobic attacks

  • camp.j - 2012-09-27 13:18

    BIG up you SAPS! This is good news

  • narike.lintvelt.9 - 2012-09-27 13:18

    good. now let justice take its proper course.

      christian.denyschen - 2012-09-27 13:27

      No we want mob justice, after them we want juju.

      rbphiri - 2012-09-27 13:43

      good. now let inmates take their inproper intercourse

  • Robin - 2012-09-27 13:19

    People arrested just so the cops can claim an arrest and release them later on lack of evidence when the media attention is gone.

      mike.down.5492 - 2012-09-27 13:23

      And you base this on ?

      kim.bezuidenhout - 2012-09-27 13:26

      Robin,you are a moron.

      stavious.mamatepa - 2012-09-27 13:51

      @Robin the cellphone,wallets

      anakin.skyvader.9 - 2012-09-27 14:29

      Have you ever been a victim of a violent crime Robin? Had a gun stuck on your car window? Your liberal views fail to impress me. Why don't you go and work for Stats-SA where you can mix up the truth and fiction even more? What about the items that were found at the suspects' places of residence? Is that also fiction and make-believe?

  • alfie.dunn - 2012-09-27 13:20

    Good...Now they should hand the bastards over to the Sanders family and friends. And take sebenza with them.

  • ken.grimblegrumble - 2012-09-27 13:20

    Put them in a boxing ring with Corrie's family.

      ken.grimblegrumble - 2012-09-27 13:23

      Meant to add "with NO ref"

      Agreed. Wish you change your ridiculous moniker though. It is South Africans who must unite.

      SABC at the 7pm news bulletin stated that all 3 suspects are Zimbabwean nationals.

    sebenza a national hero is dead an a family torn apart!!!!!they must give them to me i will show u assault!!!!!i want to kill their fathers....i feel thats justice

      Erna - 2012-09-27 13:40

      Being a 'national hero' (doesn't take much in this country) has nothing to do with it! However, a family torn apart has everything to do with it.

      jonivdw - 2012-09-27 14:04

  • dennis.craig.7 - 2012-09-27 13:29

    The comments below apart from one want the same objective - Let the criminals, black or white hang for their crimes! And yes, we wish all tax payers would get the same swift reaction by the SAPS!

      dennis.craig.7 - 2012-09-27 13:29

  • nico.eksteen.7 - 2012-09-27 13:31

    Apparently all Zimbo's. That's the result of the government's \open border / free for all to come\ policy. Eish

      thami.khulu - 2012-09-27 13:43

      You sorry sod Nico. Stop displaying your ignorance. How many crimes are perpetrated by Zimbos in SA? South Africa has one of the worst crime rates and it has little to do with Zimbos.

    Yet another normal travesty in a society of mental retards and psychopaths.

  • talana.malherbe - 2012-09-27 13:48

    Sebenza its because of clueless morons like you that this beautiful country and its people are in such a state. Please know that when we talk about idiots or brainless twats we mean you, every time! Now lets just hope the justice system does is work properly.

      whites.mustunite - 2012-09-27 13:58

      sebenza isnt for real. He is just an internet troll deperate for attention.Nobody could be that stupid. I guess he has a very tiny penis and no friends.

      It would have been better if the cops had shot them though.

  • willem.wulfse - 2012-09-27 13:53

    The incident was a blot on the reputation of the community of Oukasie. That is why information was passed on to the police. Thank you. Not all people are evil.

  • dave.kofang - 2012-09-27 13:57

    Hand them to the community so they can be necklaced before they get bail.At 19 hes already a heartless killer....damn!

    @Davy.Crokett who suggests we show leniency and compassion towards these perpetrators. Are you for real? Would you be equally forgiving if your most loved one was gunned down in his/her prime for a few trinkets? Bunny huggers like you make me want to throw up!!!!!!

      jonivdw - 2012-09-27 14:05

      He is not real, just another troll like Sebenza....

  • sifiso.sosibo.10 - 2012-09-27 14:02

    I think we need to reinstate death penalty exclusively as punishment for premeditated crimes like murder, rape and robbery cause killing a non violent family man at a child's birthday party really baffles me and a perpetrator of such horrendous crime doesn't deserve to live!

      talana.malherbe - 2012-09-27 14:04

      I agree @sifiso.sobiso.10,

  • hash.jadawat - 2012-09-27 14:03

    again I say bring in the DEATH PENALTY and surely there won't be anymore merciless killings..feed them to the crocs.

  • rohin.jadin - 2012-09-27 14:06

    I'm happy they've arrested some suspects, and I hope that if they are found guilty, the appropriate punishment takes place and that Corrie's family and friends and find closure, but I too can't help but notice how high profile victims always seem to have their cases closed, while the rest of us never see any closure. When Judy Sexwale was hijacked, they found the guys in 6 days, lucky dube's killers were found 5 days ... and now corrie's in 5 days ...

    To me its really irrelevant whether they are Zimbabweans, Malawians or SA Citizens, what angers me is that we have these type of elements in our beautiful country with no regard for a life, crime, murder and rape has become a way of life because its just so easy!
