A Jewellery store owner was shot dead and a further four people were injured by a gang of robbers who held up a NWJ Jewellery store in Northgate, Johannesburg. According to police officers on the scene the owner was shot after a shop assistant pressed a panic button alerting police. The robbers then fled the scene shooting two security guards, one in the leg and the other in the shoulder, and a woman shopper in the mall. They then shot a man entering the mall in a bakkie, “in the upper body”, as they drove away. The shop owners wife, who was uninjured in the incident, was also rushed to hospital for shock.
this is quite sad to say but the least
This is terrible – but then again what do you expect in a country riddled with scum
Sad, but this is the reality of an ANC led country.
These people have destroyed all our country’s opportunities.
wat has this got to do with the ANC? I must be missing something
Bring back the death penalty and put these animals down!
Sadly, this mall is hit quiet often, but the banks and jewelry stores are at the exits, too easy
Are you surprised???
The ANC is making jobs scarcer with the Labour Consultants, Importing Ghaneans, Malawians, Zumababweans and all other parasittes.
It is OBVIOUS that crime will go through the roof with extremely poor Policeing, Judicial Systems and corruption from the president down to the cleaner.
We are , strangely, only number five, as the worst country in Africa.
I thought, like everything the ANC touches, we would have been number 1.
All crime does not get reported by the police and they JUST DON”T PITCH UP.
When is the ANC going to learn, they are a collision course with National Desaster with the incompetant fools driving the bus.
crime has got nothing to do with black or white. this is all the legacy of apartheid where wealth is in the hands of few. blacks are starving and unemployed in this country. open ur eyes and smell the coffee
Reginald, there is no need to be emotional and insulting. Because we can easily return insults to you. But that will not help us move forward. The problem of crime will continue for as long as we have a country like ours, that is made up of two nations, one white and prosperous and one black and very poor. But that should not be an excuse. The police have done a lot to bring the crime down in recent times. So be part of the solution and not add up to the problem by being irrelevant.
Reginald, I sent an email earlier. But after reading your second comment, I am convinced that you are a stupid white person. How do you know that the suspects are black. Were you part of them? South Africa needs men and women who can think properly, and you definitely are not part of them. Rather join a community policing forum in your area and contribute to crime fighting. The police are not going to win the war on their own. And anyway, who said white people are not involved in criminal activities? Who said we can’t call them names like baboons? Bceause your reasoning sounds like baboon’s.
Well said – and that’s all they will ever amount to.
I am quite sure you don’t even have respect for your own parents, and grand parents. How do you dare to call people monkeys to this day? You are still retarded and i hope you will learn to embrace humanity and develop some respect for people, whether black or white…
you are a typical uneducated white south African with a chip on his shoulder and a bad hearted attitude.
Well said brother I am not black but I love Africa. if you don’t like Africa then go back to where you came from ot those countries whose flags you were flying during the world cup.
Crime has no color, it affects all in the world, committed by all. To racialize this is to show much ignorance! Pls ppl, if it happens to you, chances are you’re going to be ‘helped’ by someone of another culture/race. peace!
Leslie, I am quite surprised as it sounds as if you are condoning what these people did. You say there are two nations in south africa: one white and rich and one black and poor. First of all, not all white people are rich. You conveniently forget that there are white sqatters too, in Krugersdorp with NO GOVERNMENT HELP like the poor blacks. Secondly Miss Muffet, the fact that there are many black people who are poor, starving, and have no houses DOES NOT GIVE THEM THE RIGHT TO KILL PEOPLE!!!!!! Also, why don’t you put your comment forward to all the black people driving the latest BMW? They seem rather prosperous making your argument, to put it bluntly, BULL!
I completely agree that colour has nothing to do with crime.But, having said that, are you saying that starving gives them the right to kill? Steal by all means if that’s all that you can do to survive, but there is no need to kill people. There is no excuse to kill people. And shooting at innocent bystanders? Come now dude, who are you trying to convince?
Kolobe no one mentioned race until you stepped in so clearly you are making ANC refer to blacks only. so typical. I am a black person myself and i know that black people hate it when people usually white people label blacks as the ones who steal and kill but it is black people 90% of the time, y? not because people r starving and wat not, y do u have to bring something like that up when it has nothing to do with that. Somebody got killed yesterday a father to an unborn baby and now an innocent woman is widowed due to ‘hungry’ people. Please black people at least act like you’ve been educated. You don’t even need a grade 9 certificate to have COMMON sense. And please have respect for the deceased and stop making excuses for scum and the the rubbish that pollutes this country. Ignorance is already what runs this country
and this wasnt a case of stealing bread or any kind of food. this was a case of going on a killing spree.. once again they say he just shot at random people. and dont tell me that the robbers shot the guy in the parking lot for food. i highly doubt it. if ur hungry surely you would rob pick’n pay. But then again i wouldnt expext u to have ever been to northgate!
i agree fully with u scotty!! The scapegoat for black people is to always bring race into this..soo SICKENING!!!!
@leslie!PEOPLE PLEASE READ AND LISTEN CAREFULLY TO THE REPORTS. it says that the robbers were black!!or don’t u understand english?its not that hard.. stop giving us EDUCATED black poeple a bad name. and stop bringing up things that are irrelevant. once again black people there is no excuse for MURDER. the reason y im aiming at black people is because black people always start bringing up irrelevant things in arguments they know they cannot win!
Thank u natalie.. once again showing that it pays to be educated. thank u
i just cant believe that the first thing people rush to talk about after an INNOCENT MAN is murdered is race! Put yourselves in other peoples shoes. you wouldn’t be saying that people were hungry if someone had killed your mother or your father/brother sibling or any loved one. Have respect for EVERYBODY as humans and stop treating people the way animals would! We’ll never eliminate race issues in this country until you let go of using race as an excuse for everything!move forward move forward please SOUTH AFRICANS. wow. its scary to see how some people think
i 10000000% agree
Please lets get back to what happened. A innocent father, husband and employer of people was killed by a well run gang. They where not staving and well dressed. They first hit a store in Brakpan on friday then Monday Northgate. I lost a very dear friend and collage this day RIP
How shameful! A man lost his life and once again in SA it’’s all about race! RIP Kevin. You didn’t deserve to die. May your family find solace in God. Only God can bring the blacks and whites in SA to a point where they live in harmony.
Don’t insult animals. Animals have more intelligence. These are black baboons without brains that did this.
The excuse that it’s the legacy of apartheid to blame for everything is old. Every time one of these black baboons does something, it’s apartheid’s fault, when we all know it’s because they are and will always be just savages.
Always black monkeys doing this crime, or stealing in government. The legacy of the monkey.
Have they caught these black monkeys yet ?
You can’t call whites any names, because we don’t look anything like baboons. But you black sh.ts, you look exactly like baboons, and act like baboons, that’s why we call you baboons. mugabe is good example.
We know the suspects are black monkeys because monkeys are always involved with these violent crimes, always stealing with an AK. Cowards and rubbish, these black baboons
