Limpopo fugitive 'extremely dangerous'

2012-01-09 10:05

Johannesburg - A forensic psychologist says the Limpopo man who is on the run after allegedly killing his stepson and forcing three men to rape his estranged wife, is extremely dangerous.

Dr Micki Pistorius says the man - identified as Johan Kotzé, 50, from Modimolle - will definitely hurt others again.

Pistorius is also a criminologist and headed the police’s investigation-oriented psychology unit for several years.

Kotzé allegedly shot and killed his stepson, Conrad Bonnette, 19, in his rented home in Modimolle last Tuesday and has been on the run since then.

He apparently hired three men as gardeners and allegedly ordered them to gang-rape the woman. The three men have also not yet been arrested.

The fact that Kotzé went to Maroela Lodge in Modimolle to “spy on” her on New Year's Eve, showed he had an immature ego, said Pistorius.

“He is clearly an extremely dangerous person and definitely has the potential to again be that cruel.”

Hawks involved in manhunt

Limpopo police communication head Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi said the Hawks are involved in the search.

He said strong leads are being followed.

“His days are numbered,” declared Mulaudzi.

He said Kotzé was armed and warned the public to be careful if they saw him.

Kotzé fled in a white Toyota Fortuner (DCS 392 FS).

Anyone with information has been asked to contact Colonel Mabisela Mohale on 082 5658606.

    What posses humans to commit such vile acts???????

      godesha - 2012-01-09 10:58

      Thelma, this thing that committed these acts is not human, nor is he an animal. He is a crazy monster.

    Describe him or release a foto-fit, only what we know he is a 51yr old Namibian born white guy.

      Linda - 2012-01-09 10:25

      Agree absolutely. I'm pretty sure he doesn't have "Dangerous Killer" tattooed across his forehead.

      kingsleyb - 2012-01-09 10:26

      Photo was released of him last night on news 24

      Bardy - 2012-01-09 10:32

      There are pictures of the man as well as an copy of his ID on Beeld's news site... Geez people? That was posted a long time ago already! :-)

      Michael - 2012-01-09 11:19

      The fact that his name has been released means SAPS already have, at least, ID photo.

      Coral - 2012-01-09 11:42

      i cant for the life of me understand why they have not yet done this...I thought it would be the intelligent thing to do!!! Apparently not :( and this is our police force we depend on for safety - where half the time we need to tell them HOW to do their job...

      Cina - 2012-01-09 14:29

      His photo is on every new paper and TV channel everyday. Take note people.

  • Bokfan - 2012-01-09 10:29

    So why no photographs of this monster?

  • Mr C - 2012-01-09 10:29

    Is this the guy that the police have been closing in on for the last week & have arrested once? Oh & btw, i couldve told you he was dangerous

  • Thoka - 2012-01-09 10:35

    I have said it before that he must be the master at this, now this comes up. its a question of how many did he kill before this. its only a matter of time before all comes up to surface. smoke him out guys. Am still waiting with the biggest rock

  • colin.dovey - 2012-01-09 10:37

    One wonders if the vehicle he is driving has not got a tracker, or a trace could be put on his cell phone.

      SeeVeeDeeEl - 2012-01-09 10:45

      Follow the news.

      Gloria - 2012-01-09 15:22

      He removed the tracker unit himself as per the Sunday Times..

  • ofentse.ramorula - 2012-01-09 10:40

    So this guy is a white psycho? Before you all start switching on to the defence mode, the first time this story broke out most white people assumed its a black and started hurling abusive remarks at blacks in general, just goes to show crime sees no colour.

      SeeVeeDeeEl - 2012-01-09 11:12


      DuToitCoetzee - 2012-01-09 11:16

      I think you smoke stuff. I am following the story from the begin and I did not read it. No black neither white were climbing on the wagon blaming a black. Later a few black readers( I think 1 or maybe 2) were making a remark that whites are now saying nothing, but when all decided that this guy is a @#$%@! person, that died down as well. What I red was that most were criticized what he was doing and the few trollers will always be there. They don't count anymore....except if you are on there level.

  • Poloyatonki - 2012-01-09 10:41

    Limpopo Police cant catch him and I am not surprised, if it was here in the western cape he would have been behind bars long ago.

      Michael - 2012-01-09 11:21

      WEstern Cape does not own SAPS you schlong!

      Ashley - 2012-01-09 11:39

      Oh for crying out loud Michael, let me just point out the fact that the police down here actually do their jobs, it took them a few days to pin point Dewani in the whole plot to kill his wife sweetheart and the other oaks were in jail in 2 days. So go play outside and leave the forum for adults you tonsil.

      Msholozi - 2012-01-09 12:02

      mara the western cape is organised crime

      Ashley - 2012-01-09 13:07

      @Msholozi, i feel sorry for you. Where perhaps do you live you bright chap?

      allan.ryan - 2012-01-09 13:17

      And who runs the Western Cape????? DA...

  • masiela.Rudluv - 2012-01-09 10:46

    This is a demented individual the police better catch him fast before its too late!!

  • Daft - 2012-01-09 10:57

    Could be one of malema's buddies !!...they should question him !

      Poloyatonki - 2012-01-09 11:08

      I dont think Malema has white buddies.

      DuToitCoetzee - 2012-01-09 11:36

      He only had white business owners that donated money. According to Max du P. they were queuing, at a stage, to see him. Maybe that is why he fight the ordinary whitey more than the business(read international) world? O..we are so off-track bringing Malema into the story. Sorry!!!

      chris.debeer1 - 2012-01-09 11:44

      Poloyatonki Why you say my pal Malema has no white friends just cause he is a racist??? No wait their aint Black racist only white ones ne???

  • Thoka - 2012-01-09 11:01

    bokfan look at pta news if you access to it, i told you guys he" always been a criminal.

  • Andile Oscar Mtshiselwa - 2012-01-09 11:16

    He will do it again

  • Gerda - 2012-01-09 11:28

    I hope the police liaise with neighbouring countries and make sure his picture is plastered all over the national tv stations as well as front page newspaper coverage in those countries. Offering a reward will also speed up his arrest. He is very cunning and will know the perfect hideouts. Only the help of civilians will find this low life and for that even the most rural places must be made aware of him.

  • Lloyd - 2012-01-09 11:31

    lets hope the punishment fits the crime...maybe he can apply for medical parole...

  • Newsmonger - 2012-01-09 11:49

    Here is an idea...freeze his cards and assets or at minimum track him on where the cards are used the technology is available.

  • Sean - 2012-01-09 11:56

    I wonder where he ranks on the FBI list?

  • Gcwabe-KaMavovo - 2012-01-09 11:57

    The KZN SAPS would have tracked him down, and then shot and killed him by now. Limpopo cops are obviously incompetent.

  • Nyiks11 - 2012-01-09 12:07

    forget about the damn hawks man, rope in Piet Byleveld aka the sleuth and we'll have this Johan Kotze character right next door to Donovan Moodley in no time one time and all and all

  • mike.bester1 - 2012-01-09 12:10

    If he pointed her with a Laser and gave the son the finger, he would have been arrested and sentenced by now !

  • Oscar - 2012-01-09 12:23

    this is not a man - it is a montster

  • abner.malema - 2012-01-09 12:39

    Just want know if the innocent men are to be charged even when they were forced to rape

      Oscar - 2012-01-09 12:46

      forced? I don't think so. I think they were paid and then did it willingly.

  • Thoka - 2012-01-09 12:59

    @Oscar, Any reason for thinking like that?

      Oscar - 2012-01-09 16:15

      if it is so easy to find someone who is willing to kill for money, it will be as easy to find someone to who is willing to rape for money. It think it will be quite tricky to get someone to rape someone else while you being held at gun point.

  • rickvcooper - 2012-01-09 13:32

    I hope the Hawks nail this filth!

  • Annerie - 2012-01-09 15:12


  • Tanja Jaehne - 2012-01-09 20:35

    I believe that he has committed suicide by now and that its just a matter of finding his body. If not, he will kill himself when he is arrested. A sociopath like him will inflict pain on others but will take the easy way out in order not to 'go down'. His ego has to remain in tact at all times.

  • Ken - 2012-01-09 21:42

    It's time to call in Super Cop...Piet Byleveld.
