I've got no words, wtf can't the government see what is happening? Have we as citizens tax paying law abiding been reduced to target practice for criminals? RIP MaGogo every dog has it's day. No one deserves this especially children and the elderly.

They burn , butcher , drag , rape all their victims - but unfortunately the outlaw has more rights in SA and if caught they will get a slap on the wrist...welcome to the new SA

The courts will release them & they will kill again before someone at top(magistrate/judge) understands how dangerous they are to the community

I don't know why, but this story has really upset me. I actually feel hatred for these people, although I don't know them. I want them to stand in court and tell South Africa why they did this to an old lady. And then they should die.

MaGogo.. RIP. Imagine living a full long life, experiencing love, life and laughter only to be brutally raped and murdered at the end of your days. When is this carnage going to STOP?

It is extremely puzzling that RSA women still marry and date these scums. Shocking!

News 24 deleted my comment. All I did was wish for a disease invested swamp where they can build a prison for these bloody savages.
