    Is the Eastern Cape genuinely part of our Rainbow Nation? Sounds like a Province in Central Africa. Says a lot, about what citizens think, of Law and Order! Absolutely diabolical!

    And instead of a quick execution like in botswana he will go retire for 25 years in the big hotel which I the taxpayer must pay for. Why don't we export all our criminals to botswana and rather pay them to execute them. Would save us a lot of money that could be used to educate and feed law abiding citizens.

      Don't u just adore our democratic country. Even murderers have rights, though they took out the first fundamental right of all from another person. The right to live.
