Man arrested for 'execution-style' murders

2011-09-19 20:00

Johannesburg - A man will appear in the Tweespruit Magistrate's Court on Tuesday in connection with the murder of an Ethiopian businessman and his assistant, Free State police said.

Sergeant Martin Xuma said on Monday the man allegedly shot dead Sansu Jasin and Lefa Leeuw.

Jasin, 25, was about to travel to Thaba Nchu with Leeuw at about 22:00 on Friday when the man appeared and asked for a lift.

"He shot Jasin once in the neck while they were travelling in his bakkie, causing him to lose control of the vehicle that veered off the road," Xuma said.

After Jasin stopped the car, Leeuw got out and ran away, but the 27-year-old man gave chase and shot him in the back of his head. Both victims died on the scene.

Xuma said police arrested the gunman shortly afterwards, and confiscated a pistol.

"He emerged from the bushes and told the police the two were shot by an unknown man who ran away," he said.

    All niceties out the window. Death penalty. Swift criminal justice system required. Don't fak around. We have the legal minds in our judiciary to evaluate the evidence and facts quickly and efficiently. Use it. Then terminate the rubbish's existence for all practical purposes. Fark the niceties against the death penalty when the criminal is clearly and above ALL doubt in cahoots with mr Death itself. Help him by giving him his Death background and affinity to death back to him. Execute him.

    Sheep who are you exactly speaking for I do not think at everyone agrees with you. You trying to cause confrontation here we do not need people like you. Why do you basically hate white judges do they not up hold the law like any other judge? Apartheid is dead why do you want to bring it back to life again with this kind of comment?

      whats to be proud about ?

      NoKaK - 2011-09-20 08:29

      I agree....what is there to be proud about as far as the ANC is concerend? That members fought a struggle? So what?? It's human nature. Any living soul would have done the very same thing when put in such a situation. Now the power is in your party's hands and what have they done with it besides sweet fanny bugger all? How about completely eff everything up. Corruption, stealing, lies, hate crime, hate speech etc etc. No help for your poor brothers in the townships more than ten years later but the likes of your members are driving around in 4x4's and living in houses big enough to take in a good three or four families who live in poverty. Be proud of what exactly? I could go on and on and on but I don't need to because I am sure you are well aware but like any other ANC member - refuse to believe or accept it! So continue to support your government whilst this country rots away but I WILL stand strong and try my best to make it uh...essentially clean up your governments mess. ABSO-LUTELLLY!!!!!!

    THIS TYPE OF MURDEROUS XENOPHOBIC BEHAVIOUR HAS NO PLACE IN OUR SOCIETY. my condolences to the family for their loss . and sheep do you like distracting people from the topic

  • Foxit777 - 2011-09-19 21:27

    @Sheep, u are ball-less my friend. Why do you shout things that u alone cannot do, get a gun, put it on my head an pull the trigger. Do you have what it takes. ALONE or are you intimidated by your own orginization and cannot act alone but only as cowardly hiena as a pack: BTW-FU2

    Thanks news24 for not allowing your pages to be used for mindless purposes. Your excising of comments by the likes of sheep gives some hope that eventually we will overcome the nonsensical.

      Worldwise - 2011-09-20 01:43

      So now I can't read what Sheep said? Who gives you the right to take my right of seeing his comments away? Do you support the info bill? I abhor all types of censorship. I may not like what Sheep says, but I will protect his right to say it. It's called freedom of speech and is enshrined in the SA constitution. Think about what you are praising.

      crackerr - 2011-09-20 09:43

      @ Worldwise The info bill is different. It deals with information and its availability. What sheep and his ilk say is hate speech and intended to instigated mass killings. There is a difference. Maybe censorship is not such a bad idea after all if it prevents the spilling of sick ideas onto public forums like this. Question for you: Would you support masochism, sadism and all that sort of stuff on these forums? There is a limit to almost everything. Blatant ugly racism and lies should not find expression here. It should be noted that report buttons are a feature on this and other responsible forums. They are there to be used against excesses. Sometimes the line must be drawn.
