Ex-lovers vent against Johan Kotzé

2012-01-11 23:03

Bloemfontein - "I could cry from relief that he has been arrested," one of Johan Kotzé ex-lovers has said.

Kotzé, dubbed the "Modimolle Monster", was arrested on Wednesday. He had been on the run for a week since allegedly forcing three workers at gunpoint to gang-rape his wife and killing his 19-year-old stepson, Conrad Bonnette

As she was being raped, she could hear her son pleading for his life. Kotzé, however, killed him.

The ex-lover said: "I want to see how they bliksem him. He must be strung up by his pieletjie from a tree."

The other woman said several people will feel much safer now.

"I thought this morning [Wednesday] that everything should just come to an end."

Jonker de Vos, whose mom Sarita Venter from Bloemfontien, was also a Kotzé "victim" is just as relieved.

Venter committed suicide in 2010 after, according to her children, being financially and emotionally "destroyed" by  Kotzé

"I just want him to rot in jail," said De Vos.

Sanee Williams, a Prieska businessman, said on Wednesday residents wanted the investigation into the death of Bet "Baba" Botha in 1993 reopened.

Kotzé was acquitted on a charge of murder following her death.


People who'd gone to the Modimolle police station to get a glimpse of the 50-year-old, vented their anger when he was taken to a doctor after being arrested.

"You must fucking burn in hell! You coward," shouted one.

Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi, spokesperson for the police in Limpopo, said Kotzé was dehydrated.

Kotzé, his head covered and wearing shorts, said nothing as he walked to the doctor.

"You [police] must give him to the farmers," said a bystander.

"I can't believe that he has the arrogance to walk down the street. The bliksem," said a family friend of the raped woman.

    Hope he gets raped in jail. And they must place deaf wardens on duty.

      jack.oosthuysen - 2012-01-12 01:35

      Well he appears to like watching sexual acts. He will have to endure it 1st hand.

      Ian - 2012-01-12 11:34

      Yup, the first question he must hear when he get's to jail is " you wanna be the mommy or the daddy".....

      Squeegee - 2012-01-12 12:56

      Why does News 24 keep removing posts from the list?

      Michelle - 2012-01-12 16:15

      He's gonna be somebody's bitch!!!

      carpejugulim - 2012-01-12 16:40

      having read the comments and taking the general consensus of opinion into consideration I think he can foget about a tub of blue seal too

  • afroduckk - 2012-01-11 23:40

    Bring back the DEATH PENALTY

      Squeegee - 2012-01-12 06:29

      No, keep him alive. He needs to experience justice. He needs to think about all those he hurt as he himself experiences all the shame and pain on prison life. He needs to go through a trial with all these former lovers telling the world what a scum he is.

      tokoziza - 2012-01-12 08:36

      Death is too good for this prick ... he must die a slow and extremely painful death as a result of injuries incurred whilst being raped and beaten in jail.

      jade.neil - 2012-01-12 09:36

      @Squeegee, that was a quick change of attitude compared to your first statement that was blaming the poor women that he had abused. Hmmmm did you have some reality check, or did someone come and hit you on your tiny head to come back down to earth?

  • Pieter Schoeman - 2012-01-11 23:59

    Eve he can be forgiven. The only thing that stand between al mankind and doing the same is grace.

      Towtruck - 2012-01-12 00:21

      U R insane! Maybe between you and him all that is the difference is grace. I have a heart and a conscience. Read the article again, maybe then you will wake up and smell the rat.

      Mike - 2012-01-12 06:50

      Are you out of your cotton picking mind - idiot

      Johan - 2012-01-12 07:33

      Pieter, dis waar wat jy sê. Dis nogal vreesaanjaend as jy na hierdie kommentaar kyk. Hierdie mense sal die man verskeur soos wilde diere. Hulle glo die wraak kom hulle toe. Daar is selfs die wat glo dat hulle verhewe bo menslike natuur is. Eintlik verskil ons nie in aard nie, net in graad, en dis waarlik slegs genade dat jy of ek of enige iemand wat so uitvaar nog nie dieselfde gedoen het nie, dat die boosheid in ons nog nie die oorhand gekry het nie, iets waarvoor ons dankbaar behoort te wees.

      SamuraiMama - 2012-01-12 07:35

      Ja Pieter. Typical xtian mentality... And if it was your mother and your son???

      Fumanchu - 2012-01-12 08:27

      Pieter en Johan, you guys are the best examples of why there is no place in modern society for religion. You believe in books that was written 2000 + years ago by cynical old crazy bored sheep herders. Through your religion you believe in the daftest most backward things, like grace for a guy who killed a begging young boy, while his mother's breasts are being mutilated with a grinder. "Wraak ons toe kom", "Die bose in ons", "Verskil nie in aard nie" - Wat de hel rook jy dude? Jy is 2000 jaar te laat gebore.

      margaret.mead1 - 2012-01-12 09:38

      Pieter, I see all the negative responses to your message. I'm sure you were expecting lots of them. Some are vitriolic. I understand their anger. But you are RIGHT. WITH REPENTANCE there is always God's grace. The capital letters say it all. With repentance. At this moment I feel there is none, but God is faithful and patient. He is also JUST. I pray justice will be served. I admire your courage Pieter to speak the truth as it appears in the Bible. Not one of us has the right to cast the first stone.

      Hamrammr - 2012-01-12 09:45

      @Johan, I'm just proud of my Germanic heritage an in love with West European folklore. Typical, form a prejudice based on an alias, why do Christians in particular always take everything literally- even a book written by mortals? If I was evil would i condemn a creature like this? In my religion noble values and morals count, we do not just preach it as a smokescreen...

      Johan - 2012-01-12 09:55

      pieter & johan ... as a practicing Christian myself i say ... LOUTER SNERT MENERE ...!!!

      Hamrammr - 2012-01-12 10:08

      @Johan- Ek haal aan: "Hierdie mense sal die man verskeur soos wilde diere. Hulle glo die wraak kom hulle toe. Daar is selfs die wat glo dat hulle verhewe bo menslike natuur is. Eintlik verskil ons nie in aard nie, net in graad, en dis waarlik slegs genade dat jy of ek of enige iemand wat so uitvaar nog nie dieselfde gedoen het nie, dat die boosheid in ons nog nie die oorhand gekry het nie, iets waarvoor ons dankbaar behoort te wees." Hoef ek meer te sê? Is jy en die Johan Kotze dalk voëls van eenderse vere? Wie kan simpatie met so iemand hê en hom nog wil verdedig?! Ons as mense is steeds diere maar wragtig ons intellektuele vermoëns verhef ons tog bo sulke dierlike gedrag. Dit lyk die versoeking is dalk groot vir jou, is jy seker die gedaanteverwisseling na weerwolf(In skaapklere?) is nie besig om in jou plaas te vind nie?

      SergeD69 - 2012-01-12 10:34

      @ Johan and Pieter - Agree with you. Who are we to judge and be judgmental?

      Johan - 2012-01-12 10:58

      @Hamrammr- My Kommentaar het nie juis met Johan Kotze te doen as met julle wie hom wil uitsleep en martel nie, julle wie se intellektuele vermoëns waarna jy verwys julself nie genoeg verhef om jul aan geweld teenoor Kotze te wil vergyp nie.Ek sien jy wil my verkleineer, soos daai ander oukie wat vra wat ek rook? Toe ek dink om kommentaar te lewer moes ek beter geweet het as om in die pad van ‘n “Lynching mob” te beland. Jy kan nou maar met jou geroeste mes verbykom en gaan doen wat jy moet.

      Hamrammr - 2012-01-12 11:14

      @Johan- Dit is menslik om 'n wrok te koester ja, blaas 'n band af, stuur 'n vernederende e-pos in 'n emosionele oomblik aan die ander party se vriende en familie, sulke kinderagtige gedrag jy weet, maar tot die graad wat hy dit gevoer het? Om eerlik te wees kan ek my dit nie indink nie! Ek het dit nie ten doel gehad om jou te verkleineer nie, ek het bloot op die feite gewys. As jy sulke gedrag kan rasionaliseer en regverdig is my vraag 'n regverdige een. Die "Lynching Mob" waarna jy verwys kom Johan Kotze toe, dis omdat ons apaties en passief staan teenoor dade soos die dat dit so gereeld in ons land gebeur, maar kom ons los dit daar, ons waardes en morele waardes verskil duidelik.

      Cindy - 2012-01-12 11:16

      and the fact that we arent psycho- or socio-paths maybe Problem is that this whack-job will get 25 years and be out in 10 because our Correctional Services wallies will consider him a "model prisoner" (most psycho's are) and give him parole

      trix.duvenage - 2012-01-12 12:01

      Agree with you to a certain extend. However I think they must go back on this mans history to find out where his brain programme went wrong. What he did deserves no mercy what so ever and yes, he should suffer the highest possible penalty. But I agree. We normal people must point to this guy and say: There was I if it was not for the grace of God. We can also keep in mind that this man is but one of hundreds [in fact thousands] that commit this kind of crime in this very country basically on a daily basis. The government must impose much much heavier penalties[forget the death penalty, this will never happen in this country again because of cultural indifferences]. This guy is a pig and yes he must be brought to justice at all costs, but also think of the drunken drivers.... also killing and wrecking other peoples' lives. We MUST fight for a more just legal system.....

      yolani.vdw - 2012-01-12 12:16

      Ek dink julle verstaan Johan verkeerd - of dalk doen ek - maar soos ek dit sien sê hy nie dat Kotzé nie gestraf moet word nie, maar as ons aan hom doen wat hy gedoen het maak dit ons nie beter as hy nie. Wat hy gedoen het is onmenslik - wat gaan in 'n persoon se kop aan dat hy so iets sal wil doen? Hy moet gestraf word, persoonlik dink ek kastrasie is 'n goeie idee.

      Hamrammr - 2012-01-12 12:49

      Yolandi kastrasie gaan hom nie keer om weer te moor of te vermink nie! Al manier is om hom permanent uit die samelewing te verwyder en sommer sodoende 'n voorbeeld van hom te maak. As jy iets so walglik aan 'n ander kan doen, en dan nog iemand vir wie jy lief was, verdien jy dat dieselfde 10x terug met jou kan gebeur... Moenie vergeet dat hy nie net vooraf beplan het om haar sielkundig en fisies te vermink nie, maar ook dat hy sy stiefseun koelbloedig vermoor het nie. Hy is gemors en verdien 'n grusame, wreedadige dood. So 'n persoon verdien geen genade of vergifnis nie punt, net so verdien sy dade ook nie rasionalisering nie!

      Johan - 2012-01-12 13:16

      Hamrammr, ek verstaan dat jy nou nie veel waarde hieraan heg nie maar dit kan dalk net jou verwysingsraamwerk uitbrei,nie dat ek bedoel dis beperk nie...Hierdie is 'n uitreksel uit die Nederlandse Geloofsbelydenis, een van die belydenisskrifte van die Gereformeerde Kerke, asook 'n direkte verwysing na die Woord van God. "Ons glo dat ons goeie God vanweë die verdorwenheid van die menslike geslag konings, vorste en owerhede aangestel het. Dit is immers sy wil dat die wêreld deur middel van wette en regerings geregeer moet word, sodat die losbandigheid van die mense in bedwang gehou kan word en alles onder die mense ordelik kan verloop. Vir dié doel het Hy die owerheid die swaard in die hand gegee om die kwaaddoeners te straf (Rom 13:4) en die deugsames te beskerm." Dit volg dat die doodstraf, veral in 'n onderontwikkelde land soos ons s'n nodig is.Dit is so dat Kotze 'n kandidaat vir so 'n doodstraf sou wees. Ogelukkig vir baie hier nie een toegdien deur 'n histeriese massa nie.

      Karin - 2012-01-12 13:20

      Sorry Pieter, I do not agree. He did not just make one simple mistake and appologised for it or tried to "FIX" his error - this man is "EVIL REINCARNATE"

      Gregory - 2012-01-12 14:24

      Trix - part of your comment - 'But I agree. We normal people must point to this guy and say: There was I if it was not for the grace of God' - no no no my dear lady! There I do not go, have not gone, and will not go. And your god has bugger all to do with it. For me, it's plain inhumane, it's insane, it's disgusting and the vark should be strung up in public upside down, his tottie hanging, and the people he harmed slice it with a razor. Forgive, not judge - bull-dust. You have it happen to family of yours and then we'll watch as you wash his feet, wipe his tears and tell him how you 'love you my brother. all is forgiven'. Crap, string him up, cut his dingus, and let him bleed out, to death. Klaar!

      Janine - 2012-01-19 14:07

      Pieter & Johan. Ek was so dankbaar om julle kommentaar te lees. Ek is een van Sarita Venter se jonger sussies. En JA dit is VERSKRIKLIK wat Johan Kotze gedoen het. Ek kan my op geen manier indink waardeur sy arme slagoffer moet gaan nie...ek kan regtig nie. Die grusaamheid daarvan is skokkend vir ons almal. En JA hy het my sus emosioneel en finansieel vernietig. Hierdie nuwe gebeure het ou wonde weer oopgeruk waarmee elkeen van ons as haar familie moet deel. Ek het steeds soms deur emosies van 'n verskriklike kwaad, woede en skok. My sus is weg...en ek mis haar meer as ooit. Maar dank God vir Jesus waardeur ons as 'n nuwe mens gebore is in die Gees. Ek glo dat God die dade van Johan Kotze HAAT...maar ek weet op grond van die Woord dat God sondaars liefhet - daarom ook vir Johan Kotze liefhet, want dit is nie die wil van God dat EEN siel verlore gaan nie. Is dit nie die rede waarom ons Hemel Vader Sy Enigste Seun aarde toe gestuur het vir sondaars te sterf.. Ja ek bely dat Johan se dade hom afstootlik maak vir my met tye en dat ek daagliks moet waak teen veroordeling van hom as mens. Dit is presies wat die Woord ons leer, om nie deur ons vlees (die ou sondige natuur) te lewe nie maar as nuwe mens in Christus Jesus. Wanneer die oe van ons verstand verlig is deur die kennis van die waarheid van God se ONVOORWAARDELIKE liefde vir sondaars..laat ons liewer net stil wees in dankbaarheid vir Sy genade en bid vir die wat dit nog nie ken nie. Janine

      Gail - 2012-01-12 10:50

      To answer rape with rape merely creates another rapist! To his handlangers as you call them. I always feel a modicum of pity for these down and out and pwerless men who are tempted by money of cowards to commit crime. They were being forced at gunpoint by this man so in a sense he raped them as well by using death and money as power over them. They may well also be previous offenders however the reason they are now rapists is because he picked them up to work as gardeners for payment and then forced them at gunpoint. It does puzzle me why and how they complied with a gun held to their heads but JK is the one who deserves to face the most punishment.

      yolani.vdw - 2012-01-12 12:19

      I agree Gail, what I just don't get is that they were three against one. They could have easily over powered him - gun or no gun.

      @ Salomemagerstein: Sjoe maak jy het 'n vuil bek.....eet jy ook daarmee? En as jy hulle nou klaar 'gerape' het wat dan? @ Fumanchu en Hammrammr : Ek gaan afrikaans want smaak my julle ken dit goed genoeg: Dis juis as gevolg van gebrek aan regligie of liewer Godsdiens wat hierdie land lyk soos dit doen. Johan en Pieter kom redelik 'ontwaak' voor en dit is mense soos julle ander twee wat effe aan die slaap deur die lewe gaan. Hierdie moordenaar kon jou SEUN gewees het, of nog erger, dit kon JY gewees het!! Lewensles: Die enigste verskil tussen 'n dood normale mens en 'n ou wat so mal as 'n haas in Weskoppies is, is een sestiende van 'n ons jodium in die normale ou se skildklier ingespuit. So wat maak julle groot bekke so spesiaal? Los Johan en Pieter uit, ten minste praat hulle sense en as julle nie op daardie golflengte ingestel is nie, gaan op julle kniee en maak 'n begin. Hierdie moordenaar het 'n verfoeilike daad gepleeg en hy moet die swaarste moontlike straf opgele word. Maar voordat ONS sommer begin oordeel en veroordeel, kom ons kyk na die groter prentjie in hierdie lank en kom ons begin DINK vir onsself....

    His parents and the community he grew up in failed to bring him up properly, they must be ashamed of themselves. Bring up kids properly they grow up into better human beings.

      carpejugulim - 2012-01-12 05:53

      @ Imarima life is made up of choices, the choice to be a productive citizen or not. The choice to exercise selfcontrol or not. Following your train of thought, at the age of 50 he should be passing on lifeskills and knowledge to younger generations and bring them up properly. He chose instead to be violent towards people and have no self control. His parents (wherever they are) are probably mortified at what he has chosen to become.

      Lyndatjie - 2012-01-12 06:51

      You are joking right? What is it with some people who continually go around blaming the environment, the community, the parents, the friends, the schools, the media - ANYTHING but the person who did the crime. Life is about accountability Lmarima and NO community can possibly take the blame for the choices you CHOOOOOOOOOOOSE to make. Stop trying to place blame elsewhere - Kotze is a psychopath - blame him!

      Schmee - 2012-01-12 10:26

      Imarima, it takes a village to raise a child, but every village also has an idiot. Obviously Kotze was the village idiot who did not understand what the village was trying to teach him. Even at 50 he did not get it. Stop blaming parents. YOU are the reason people like Kotze are the way they are. YOU are giving people like that an excuse not to improve their behaviour. We all make our own choices and should take responsibility for our own actions no matter how sick our background.

      nasheenar - 2012-01-12 11:04

      Imarima to a degree you are correct, good upbringing influences an individuals moral fibre, however I dont think you can blame the community for him not being human. Clearly this man is a psycopath you cannot blame anyone else for his actions but him.

      Gail - 2012-01-12 11:06

      In all likelihood this is a man who grew up in a home with an abusive father and he is repeating the cycle. Boys learn from their fathers and sadly their powerlessness to defend their mothers when young turns to rage as they grow older. This rage oddly is transferred to the mother who took the abuse without walking away and it is turned inwards and eventually when women won't be cowed by him they become the targets of his anger and learned behaviour. I am merely speculating here but JK wasn't born damaged; he became the monster because of either no boundaries, bad example or even possibly his mother ran away from his father leaving him behind so now he hates woman and doesn't trust them.

      Schmee - 2012-01-12 11:19

      Okay Gail let me quickly go home and beat up my wife. After all I learnt it from my drunk father. Wait, let me first get drunk like he used to do. STOP MAKING EXCUSES FOR BAD BEHAVIOUR. You are empowering people with bad behaviour. Yes it is more difficult not to do as your parents did but there are millions of examples of people who got it right. What was Kotze's excuse?

  • Ben - 2012-01-12 04:45

    Whoever removed the death penalty, lives in a fools paradise and must have thought that you can treat a violent person and/or a murderer like any other normal human being. This man does not belong in society and any man who uses violence against women and/or children who are weaker than himself is a coward and should not even be called a man. If the law remains unchanged, do not blame me if I turn violent against such animal because there are a lot of us who feel different about this sickening violence against women and children by an inferior species who call themselves men.

    This is not all that should be done to this despicable piece of rubbish. Bring back the death penalty but before hanging him he should be put through the same torture that he did to this woman and her son. Then he should be put in a prison with the worst criminals where they can sodomise him,beat him up and then taken out to the nearest tree and hung. There should be no sentence to life for him because now the taxpayer must look after him.

    Actually the police messed up this one. They did not have the saultiest peanut in the packet on this case. With this guy living 2km from the house, they could not catch him for a week. With a tip from the public, they chase him till a point and then for half a day yet again they could not catch him. Then another phone call to tell them to come and pick him up. On TV the big shot policemen claim and congratualate his team for the hard work to "crack" this case. What did they do. Luckly they had had a vehecile with petrol to go and pick him up

      @ SamuraiMama considering the amount of photos of him that have been plastered all over the net for the last couple of days, him covering his head is more a case of shutting the stable door after the entire farm has bolted ..... or perhaps he was trying to keep the sun off his dehydrated head ...NOT!

      Apart from the obvious victims in this case, one can only hope that this sick piece of crap's parents are no longer alive, to have to witness his acts, and to have to sit through a court trial. Imagine that.

    While I admit that some strong flavoured words come to mind when I read about this case, I have to say that the language used in the comments are horrific, but strangely fit. As someone who has been been a victim of a masterminded pathological psychopath, I am cheering! At last 'slim vang sy baas'. Usually people like him are charming, intelligent, high ranking in business and it is always the victim's word against his...and as a socalled 'valuable' member of the community, he can use his influence and people who owes him favours to get his way. But this time, it took a woman's nipples being grinded off, a son being shot in front of his mother, a woman gangraped at the insistence of her husband/lover to make a nation stand up and say: ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! May you get the justice you deserve!

  • EyesEars - 2012-01-12 07:54

    2 + 2 does not equal 4. Will rather wait for more info. Only one side that has been told.

      Pumlani - 2012-01-12 09:07

      Are you serious? I wonder if you would make the same stupid comment if it happened to a member of your family....think before you type next time.

      George - 2012-01-12 11:06

      Please eyes, can I have some of the mountain cabbage youre smoking. NOTHING can justify what this ppiece of human garbage did to that poor woman NOTHING regardless if there were two sides on the story or not. Arse>

      Perfume - 2012-01-12 14:15

      How did you reach that conclusion, are you perhaps related to this psycho - you will change tune the day it happens to a member of your family.

      TaniaSandraSteyn - 2012-01-13 21:48

      You obciously didn't read the article. this guy has a history longer than your arm. He was NOT a once-off psycho.

    News24, you need to step up a lot. This eNews provider has become rather pathetic and shallow and is reflected in what comments they are allowing to be posted, some badly written articles and plain incompetence at keeping the site uptodate.

  • Ruth - 2012-01-12 08:19

    Actually, all the utterings possible cannot describe rubbish of his calibre,ugh

  • adel.kruger1 - 2012-01-12 08:43

    Daar ia n stelsel wat hom sal gee wat hom toe kom, dit was onodig gewees van hom om dit so ver te vat. ek voel jammer vir die ma en seun. en wens dit glad ni op enige iemand toe ni. Johan Kotze sal sy dag van rekening kry. ons as vrouens moet saam staan en sulke siek mans uit ons lewens uit hou. Om hom te vloek en te skel, gan nie die seer weg vat nie, ons almal moet as n nasie saam staan en sulke skum uit ons dorpe uit werk.

  • paulmandlankosi - 2012-01-12 08:44

    Sanee Williams, a Prieska businessman, said on Wednesday residents wanted the investigation into the death of Bet "Baba" Botha in 1993 reopened.Kotzé was acquitted on a charge of murder following her death. Just note that the ANC was not in government.

      Gail - 2012-01-12 11:17

      This is true but death pebnatlies had been placed on hold during that period before the ANC were voted into power. This is in part why the Delmas 4 survived to tell the tale.

    Its up to God to judge him, And its up to the justice department to arrange the meeting.....

  • Pieter - 2012-01-12 09:24

    Just off the point a bit... Everyone should take a look around them and see why we as a society produce such horrors. We entertain a lifestyle of low family values and this is how these people thrive. I look at the people involved and it is difficult to follow - just looking at the surnames - who is connected to whom. If we had a society that did not entertain that, this monster would not be able to arise, but would rather have been marginalised long ago. I also look at the attitude of Sithando and the 6 people that agree with him. They would have no place in society if it had been closed to them by people living in tight nit healthy family structures.

      Gail - 2012-01-12 11:24

      I agree with you up to a point Pieter but sometimes and this is throughout history monsters do arise regardless of their backgrounds. Too much religion, no religion, too much discipline, no discipline; There are no easy answers and this is why the justice system exists. What most commentators want on here is is revenge and not justice which is a kneejerk rreaction. Faced with actually administering that rrevenge most would realise that they would not be able to do so. Had he been jailed back in 1993 then many innocent victims might not have suffered at his hands including the 3 guys he selected to do his ex-wife.

  • talia.brisley - 2012-01-12 09:49

    What a bunch of idiots. Its his parents fault, no wait it's christianity's fault, even better it's apartheid's fault. Not resisting arrest and running from the LAW, which at the end of the day is the only thing you should answer to, is a slight indication of you know it's your own F@#$ing fault. Personlly I say people that do hedious things like this should be put out into the public and let us do to him what we think is right. Some mob revenge in the morning sounds good to me.

  • kritzinger - 2012-01-12 09:51

    Ten points to everyone here for not letting the comments degrade into another tedious racial debate.

  • janjac.gilbert - 2012-01-12 09:57

    How is it it possible that a man can get so low in life. I wonder what happened in his life, why he became like this? Is this perhaps a demonstration or display of the true human nature if the grace of God is absent in a person's life?

  • Hein Van Staden - 2012-01-12 10:07

    Y do they cover his head, they should leave it open so that the prisoners in jail can have a good look at his face, let's see if he wil like getting raped

  • Nasiefa - 2012-01-12 10:54

    send him to paulsmore prison !! he will get raped there

  • George - 2012-01-12 11:03

    Hope he enjoys getting sodomised in prison and he dies a slow death the cowardly bastard.

  • Mark - 2012-01-12 11:18

    It is normal for people to react in the way they are against this man. I too felt the same way at first, but I don't think none of us would actually be able to do literally to him what has been mentioned. If anyone of us did have it in us, then we would become exactly like him. Yes it would be for a different reason that we would do it, but we would become just like him. The law of the land should take care of him. By the way, I believe in the death penalty too. An eye for an eye and a life for a life...

  • nikkiduku - 2012-01-12 11:28

    Yet another reason "eye-for-an-eye" policy should be introduced.

    The scary thing is that thing dangerous type attract vulnerable women like fly to s***. The bogeyman is no longer the stranger out there that parents warn their children not to take candy from, he is omnipresent in our community, our street and in our families and homes.

  • Perfume - 2012-01-12 14:14

    He does not deserve to die, every second in prison, he will know what it is like to be raped - he has scarred many a woman. He is VILE!!!!!

  • Elizabeth - 2012-01-12 15:12

    O die banaliteit van een van Kotze se'ex lovers', platvloers om die minste te se en dan word die nuushoofvlakke gehaal deur hierdie vlak / kaliber van ons samelewing....

  • optmistic123 - 2012-01-12 15:21

    Its about time that People are getting upset with men like him... BRING BACK THE DEATH PENALTY!!!!

  • Dewdawn - 2012-01-12 16:26

    I do not agree with the death penalty as the one that does the killing also dies a little with each execution performed. What I do agree with is that people like this must be medically rendered a paraplegic. Then, if they want to eat, they must be incarcerated, for life, in a facility that forces them to perform acts of kindness for people who no longer have control of their body functions.

  • carli.wessels - 2012-01-12 17:04

    We are all accountable for what we do in life. now justice will be served. a big thanks to the community who helped the police in catching this bastard.

  • Andries - 2012-01-12 18:00

    "BLOEMFONTIEN" can slumber more now as their only threat to a peaceful existence 600 km to the north is in jail. BUT: as always with News24 it is a very badly written piece of journalism. I only read this silly online paper for the laughs.

  • Cecilia - 2012-02-23 22:19

    Janine- Sarita se jonger sussie- Baie dankie vir jou pragtige comment, regtig, mag die Here jou seen. Mag die Bonette familie ook soos jy eendag kan vergewe. Want, vergifnis maak ons vry, ne. Ek gee sommer vir jou n spesiale drukkie. Ons is almal diep geraak deur die gebeure en met skok hoor mens van al die vroue in sy lewe - afgesien dat Ina sy 5e vrou was. Een ding is seker- dis abnormaal om so veel keer te trou en te skei. Maar dan is daar nog x minaresse ook gewees. Dis duidelik dat Johan Kotze n groot probleem met vrouens het en bes moontlik n vrouehater is. Besit hulle, gebruik hulle en neem wraak as hy nie sy sin kan kry nie. Heel waarskynlik omdat hy geweet het sy biologiese ma wou hom nie gehad het nie(verwerping).Ina was die sneller toe sy HOM los(nie hy vir haar nie) wat hom tot sulke ongelooflike uiterstes toe geryf het. Iemand wat so iets doen is versteur- jammer dit moes so ver gaan voor mense dit besef. Maar as mens terug kyk kan mens sien waarnatoe hy uiteindelik oppad was. My hart gaan ook uit na die pragtige vrou Sarita (oorlede) en haar familie. Dis so hartseer mens kan dit amper nie glo nie. Dis verseker dat hy nie weer die kans sal he om nog iemand se lewe te verwoes nie. Dit sal interressant wees om te hoor wat het van sy vorige 4 x -vrouens geword. Hoe meer inligting,hoe beter kan ander gewaarsku wees teen tekens teen sulke mans en om nie slagoffers te word in die toekoms van hulle nie. Kotze is nie die enigste- daar is nog daar buite.

  • Cecilia - 2012-02-23 22:28

    Dankie Elizabeth vir jou comment- laat mens wonder met watse vrouens Johan Kotze dan deurmekaar was- afgesien van Ina en Serita wat twee pragtige opgevoede dames was. Of, miskien bring hy hierdie banalitit in vrouens uit- soos in baie mense - ekt nog nooit sulke kru tale gehoor nie. Die reaksie en comments is oorweldigend- veral tydens sy hofverkynings. Laat mens sidder om te dink wat le nog voor... dis beslis in belang van openbare orde dat hy in die selle bly.

  • Cecilia - 2012-02-23 22:39

    Gail- the correct background info is that he was raised in a loving caring family with good normal parents - but he was adopted.He knew that his biological mother wanted to abort him.... (rejection) He was damaged before he was adopted. He called himself a "hoerkind"
