    I wish all of these murdering scumbags would just disappear as if they never existed! To Dave's widow, I am so sorry for your loss, and for the fact that your unborn baby will never ever know his/her father!

      It will never end Sharon. The supply chain for this type of scum is limitless. They are probably laughing about their " exploits " in a shabeen right now. Once again minorities suffering @ the hands of the majority race.

    Damn another hard working, honest citizen murdered in cold blood. Can't we maybe all sign a petition to bring back the death penalty, how many more widows, widowers and orphans should suffer this wrath from these savages?

      Karl - 2012-04-11 18:54

      Thats small digits ma man! US makes two digits daily

      Marcel Verster - 2012-04-11 19:15

      The US has more than 6 times our population.

      zane.zeiler - 2012-04-11 19:20

      Karl, actually that's only the 4th reported by news24 this week, according to last years statistics SA makes around 50 digits daily and we are only a fraction of the population of the US.

      Gestoffle - 2012-04-11 19:26

      @Karl - Idiot! What the hell has that got to do with it. Are you saying because the US stats dwarf our murder stats, there is no problem? Rather say nothing fool.

    Bastards!!!!! And then Mr Zuma says, we are safe........ Please Mr Zuma, take your guards away and donate them to us, at least we might feel safe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • George - 2012-04-11 19:02

    @rob, The last time I checked I am in the majority that you are referring to and I have never robbed or thought about robbing or killing anyone from the so called minority. Don't use this incident to hide your evil thought. You are as bad as those murderers. I feel bad I about this incident but I have nothing to do with it. I'm as scared as anyone who does not appreciate this time of life.

  • veritas.odium.paret - 2012-04-11 19:06

    You'd almost want to booby trap your own house when reading about these scum! Something that'll teach unknowing intruders a very painful and lasting lesson about tresspassing.

      Koos - 2012-04-11 22:23

      If you do get him in a trap just don't call the cops.

  • Alex - 2012-04-11 19:07

    We need to organize ourselves better, we getting taken out like lambs. Just dont involve the cops cause they got better things to do I am sure!

  • Karl - 2012-04-11 19:15

    Who's gonna change this world and make it better place to stay???\r\nGod bless Africa and the rest of the world...

    It is so sad that each time you visit news24 you'll be greeted by the news of murder,robbery and rape. As readers sometimes we don't put ourselves in the shoes of the victims but if it once happen to you, you'll know exactly what they went through. That's why you find some reader's comments not sympathizing with the victims, that's why our honorable president will confidently say we are safe, maybe we don't understand the meaning of the word itself

      Koos - 2012-04-11 22:21

      “Honorable”? Please elaborate. What makes that man so “honorable”. I would really like to know.

    The death penality works, there has never been a re-accuring crime recorded by a hanged killer.
