Angry community members have set four houses on fire in Parow and Goodwood following the brief court appearance of a suspect arrested for the murder of Tazné van Wyk.
The community members believe Tazné van Wyk (8) was kept in one of the houses before she was killed.
Community members believe the houses that were torched are drug dens and one woman recorded on camera said the act was a result of failed legal system pushing the community to civil disobedience.
The eight-year-old girl was reported missing two weeks ago and a54-year-old suspect was arrested in connection with the girl’s murder.
He pointed out her body to police on Wednesday. The man appeared briefly in court on Friday. The case has been postponed to April for further investigation.
#taznevanwyk deserves justice. It’s good to see people taking the law into their own hands. We should repeatedly take the law into our own hands because clearly the leaders of this country have failed us. https://t.co/KIvCGmykW0
