31 Dec 2014 - New Years Eve Havoc On Plots
The following events on new year's eve were described in reports received. Should new information become available this report will be updated accordingly.
At 21:20 an emergency call came over the Bravo radio network from a person from the plots in Harties. After the commotion of reaction was over, the following became clear:
At a Syferfontein plot close to the old drive-in next to the main road, people were having a good time with friends. When the friends started to say goodbye, 3 black males stormed in and robbed them of their cellphones and other items. One of the robbers had a hand gun and the other a shotgun. A guard saw them from the outside and made alarm. They then ran away while shooting. The residents locked theselves in and waited for help, which arrived soon. Luckily no one was hurt.
At 23:10 on a Rietfontein plot a man and wife were sleeping with their bedroom window open. Someone started shooting at them through the window and killed the man (aged 48), while his wife was wounded in the face. It is very likely that this horrendous act was perpetrated by the same people who were involved in the earlier incident.
It is likely that these individuals thought that shots on new year's eve would be masked by all the crackers.
At least 2 more incidents:
Just after 4 am this morning a Rietfontein plot residence was ransacked, while the residents are still away on holiday. They also tried their luck at Harro's plot, but were chased away.
Our condolences to all the victims and families who suffered loss and trauma this new year's eve.
