'Disbelief' as Anene suspect denied bail

2013-02-28 10:00

Cape Town - One of the men arrested for the rape and murder of Bredasdorp teenager Anene Booysen bowed his head and stared in disbelief as he was denied bail, according to a report.

The Bredasdorp Magistrate's Court on Wednesday found that Jonathan Davids, 22, had not provided it with exceptional circumstances for his release and the public outrage over the crimes could not be ignored.

The Cape Times reported that the decision shocked his supporters, who thought he would be set free.

Davids and co-accused Johannes Kana are the only two arrested for the crime on 2 February but Booysen, 17, had said from her hospital bed that five or six men were involved.

She had also named "Zwai", which was both the nickname of Davids and another man said to live in Zwelitsha.

Booysen was found severely beaten and disembowelled at a construction site. She died soon after being hospitalised.

Earlier she had spent several hours at a pub. Kana and Davids confirmed they had been at the same pub that night.

The case will resume on 22 April 2013.

    Disbelief that he was not granted bail......they are some sick people in this country...........

      Zane Blignaut - 2013-02-28 11:04

      if he was to be granted bail, he wouldn't make his trial.. the community would have lynched him! being denied bail saved his life!

      optmistic123 - 2013-02-28 11:15

      whats worse is that there is dislike to your comment!

      Mable Jacobs - 2013-02-28 11:28

      I disbelieve that he'll have three balanced meal a day on our taxes

      jaco.skalkwyk.3 - 2013-02-28 12:52

      If he is in fact not the correct "Zwai", then it would make sense... Police arresting someone by their nickname is also a bit unfair and we all know how the police opperates. This is a high profile case and we have seen in the past how mistakes were made. Take Fred van der Vyfer for instance.

      guru100 - 2013-02-28 13:04

      some are granted bail and some are not. equal south africa

      toni.k.mcquillen - 2013-02-28 13:42

      And I was looking forward to seeing what the comunity was going to do with him. They are some very twisted individuals, I can't believe people would support them - surely they wouldn't want this to happen to their loved ones. Lock them up and throw away the key, let the other criminals look after them now.

  • susan.paul.330 - 2013-02-28 10:11

    The justice system is protecting them by denying bail, hand them over to the community.

      JakeMuso - 2013-02-28 10:30

      Wouldn't have lasted long outside. But let's just see how it plays out. Hopefully he goes to jail and gets raped everyday for the next 50 years.

      gary.bloom.967 - 2013-02-28 13:19

      Just look at what happened the killer of Sheldean Human......this chappie will get taken care of........

  • Jason Lok - 2013-02-28 10:15

    @ Susan, I agree, grant him bail an let him loose an let Mob justice take its course, in prison he'll hav a royal time, contrary to this hopefully he will be treated the same way for the crime he commited an learn his lesson slowly n properly

  • Lourens Roux - 2013-02-28 10:19

    Oh please bring back the death penalty for cases such as these where it was proven without a doubt that there has been a murder or a rape

  • Jo.Davies123 - 2013-02-28 10:25

    He should be glad he was not granted bail. The community want revenge for Anene. He wouldn't last one day back on the streets.

  • pissywhiskers - 2013-02-28 10:25

    He is lucky he doesnt have enough moneylike Oscar and released back into the community where he can afford to be protected. He should be releived he gets to live a little while longer to face justice

  • T-bos Man - 2013-02-28 10:26

    You got no cash and no one knows you so you will rot in prison

  • JakeMuso - 2013-02-28 10:29

    Really? Disbelief? Now that's something to show disbelief about.

  • Zuz67 - 2013-02-28 10:31

    What a pity he cannot get bail!! The community could have sorted him out

  • Tanya Booysen - 2013-02-28 10:35

    When are the other guys gonna be arrested you clearly have enough evidence that he was involved he knows who was with him

  • ANASKA - 2013-02-28 10:39

    The DISBELIEVE is HOW these monsters raped and murdered Anene!!

  • Sidney Meyer - 2013-02-28 10:50

    Death penalty

      silenta.solly - 2013-02-28 12:05

      funny how you were not saying that on Oscar

      jcistheman - 2013-02-28 12:28

      Go do some research, all the death penalty will do is cost us the tax payers more money! I will mot bring down the crime rate one little bit.

      Bruce Gauld - 2013-02-28 18:21

      Even if it doesn't bring the crime rate down at least proper justice is done! Bring back the death penalty!

  • Nurse Helenk - 2013-02-28 10:52

    Good. Murderers don't deserve bail. Justice served for once.

  • Wike Mood - 2013-02-28 10:53

    only disbelief by him and his gangster scum friends.

  • ruth.vanzyl - 2013-02-28 10:53

    Thank your lucky stars you are being kept in jail, on the outside they are waiting for you, you toad

  • Sean Potgieter - 2013-02-28 10:57

    How twisted must these monsters be to think they would even get bail?. And they have supporters? -1 Faith in humanity

  • bradgordon69 - 2013-02-28 11:02

    Scum. Hope he gets the same treatment in prison.

  • 123sdp - 2013-02-28 11:18

    What is wrong with the people here on the news24 comments - How can you dislike a comment if someone is is angry at a rapist-killer. I mean that you support rapist and murders. You must be rapist yourself then! Come now dislike this you poephol!

      Nurse Helenk - 2013-02-28 13:02

      Maybe people dislike vulgar language like "poephol"?

  • ec.van.niekerk - 2013-02-28 11:22

    give him bail ... plz ... so jungle justice can prevail!!!!!

  • carol.harvey.9406 - 2013-02-28 11:33

    all the thumbs down to these legitimate comments are actually from the remaining rapists/murderers who have not yet been found !!

  • Carmen Gabriels - 2013-02-28 11:34

    Disbelief as Oscar was granted bail...

      edwardsch - 2013-02-28 12:03

      Idiot, you can't compare the two cases. GANG RAPE AND MURDER. At least Reeva did not have to suffer the first but if he is guilty, then he can also sit and rot.

  • Carmen Gabriels - 2013-02-28 11:35

    Disbelief as Oscar was granted bail...

  • godesha - 2013-02-28 11:41

    Maybe it is for their own good that they were not granted bail. Imagine what will happen if the community gets hold of them.

  • Hemlock - 2013-02-28 11:44

    Hang the bastard in public but slit his belly open first!...Savage piece of cr*p!

      tersia.louw.12 - 2013-02-28 22:58

      You advocate that this should happen: Hang the bastard in public but slit his belly open first! And then you call him a savage piece of crap. Mmm. Given what you want done, how the hell can we tell who the savage piece of crap is? Behave like that and how can we tell who the good guys are?

  • Busisani Mhlambi - 2013-02-28 11:56

    I guess he needed Barry Roux as his lawyer. He successfully negotiated bail for a cold case murder accussed, against 1 of the best prosecutors in the country.

      tersia.louw.12 - 2013-02-28 22:53

      What cold case murder accused?

  • Busisani Mhlambi - 2013-02-28 11:57

    He deserves to be denied bail!

  • andries.koekemoer - 2013-02-28 11:58

    Keep monsters like these in jail till they die, no why must we pay for his boarding and lodging? Bring back the death penalty but this time put in in cages full of hungry lions!!!

  • edwardsch - 2013-02-28 11:59

    What gets me is the way they all manage to look sooooooo 'innocent'. Pity we don't have pictures of what the perpetrators looked like during the attack. I would venture to say that they would look like the rubbish they are. Go to jail, throw the key away - only way to keep them off the streets.

  • woody.woodpecker.92351 - 2013-02-28 12:02

    he would have raped again, in "its" blood

  • Roz Rose - 2013-02-28 12:03

    Pistorious is no threat to you or me. He didnt randomly select a stranger on the streets, even if he is proven guilty of murder in the end. This scourge of making our streets unsafe for young girls and other ' at risk' sectors of society is a different story and race has nothing to do with it

  • winifred.watson.9 - 2013-02-28 15:00

    When Anene was discovered even the doctors said he was traumatised and the people cried out in disbelief, who could do such a thing. Now they have caught two of the guys and bail has been denied, they cry again in disbelief. These guys are monsters of the very worst kind and they deserve to rot in jail. I hope the suffer there, they can get a taste of what is to come. They will never suffer the same experience they put that poor girl through. I would like to see them cut up like pieces of polony, piece for piece, thats what they deserve. Those people crying because these monsters were denied bail, should be horse whipped, who supports murdering monsters.

  • penny.bartlett.12 - 2013-02-28 15:57

    JOhannesburg Daddy - keep your mouth shut - this is demeaning for the late Reeva and her family

  • Lionel De Frontignac - 2013-02-28 16:04

    If he had Oscar's lawyers...

  • Bruce Gauld - 2013-02-28 18:09

    What!! I'm in DISBELIEF at the fact they have not been sentanced to DEATH yet under a flash reinstatement of the death penalty!!!! Get oscar there and give them all knives. Tell them only one walks out alive. Then take the last person and have them shot!

      tersia.louw.12 - 2013-02-28 22:55

      Not too civilised, are you, Bruce? Believe in due process much, or just the "law" of mobs and the jungle?

      Dan Moore - 2013-03-02 07:04

      Bruce while I don't agree with everything you have said you have the strength to make change happen. SA needs more people like you. Until people in SA are willing to take brutal action to stop these rape sprees nothing will change. You can't expect first world laws to work for savages, kill them esp the rapist cops. No mercy kill them.

  • Dan Moore - 2013-03-02 06:35

    I keep saying it. Until the people of SA are willing to meet violence with greater violence nothing will change. Stop being Apathetic get rid of the ANC, that rapist president, bring back the death penalty and kill all rapists. That's right kill them. Until the fear of punishment is greater than the sick pleasure of committing a crime nothing will change people, it's basic human psychology. people don’t change unless they feel that the pain of staying the same has become greater than the pain of change. It goes for all aspects of life alcoholism, drugs, committing crimes. Stop praying for change and take action!

  • Veni Pillay - 2013-03-04 11:01

    the police have been in news these last weeks for a lot of errors in judgement. lets hope for the sake of justice they have arrested the right man, and the right man will be tried.

  • Annemarie White - 2013-03-08 19:45

    He thought he would be allowed to walk the streets in Bredasdorp again? He underestimates the Bredasdorp community!
