      As usual, Zoompie is still lying and said he and the cANCer is not corrupt. Dick-tator (Spear-tator) as before, building his Zoomavillage with R238m tax payers money, but call it his private residence. Once a scum always a scum.

    Thank God he got away with his life! Material things are nothing compared to life, as long as he's still alive he will regain what has been stolen to him and it will come back double/triple because God will be the one who's returning those items.

    I urge everyone to take a minute of their time at look at the Victim Support Network on Facebook available at This is a fantastic forum for all South Africans, victims of any crime-related incident and non-victims alike, to benefit from the resources available on this page, voice your opinions and/or experiences and to learn and help others learn from incidents like these. This is really unfortunate and most of all it should not carry on. Let's get together and help make criminals lives intolerable.

    Yeah the SAPS are hunting what a joke. I had a few robberies at my shop in Vredefort, had a good idea who it was and the cops did nothing until we caught him red handed then they did something (TO PROTECT THE CRIMINAL). We just don't matter. To much work them to do not to mention all the paperwork
