    This is a great step forward that has been happening( well report more). Communities all over South Africa need to continue to turn in these killers and thieves. This in the long run will show that all south Africans have a common goal to live in peace and that they will not stand for the shame that these people bring to the country. All i can say more of this needs to continue at all levels, in all communities.
