    Well done to SAPS.Let's hope if they are the culprits,they are convicted and put away for the next 25 years.The cops must not bungle so that these killers go scott free due to a technicality.

    It's very sad indeed may God accept his soul and rest him in paradise.For the murderers let them enjoy freedom in our govt but sooner they will be in the fire of hell.
