Men appear for Jeppestown bloodbath

By Megan Hartogh

The 11 people arrested in connection with Sunday’s bloodbath in Jeppestown, appeared in the Roodepoort Magistrate’s court on Tuesday. According to police spokesperson, Mary Martins-Engelbrecht, the accused were scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday, but the change had been made early on Tuesday morning. It is reported that the courtroom, which was cleared of all journalists and onlookers, was filled by approximately 20 armed police officers. The 11 are believed to have been involved in a robbery at a Pick ‘n Pay in Honeydew, Johannesburg. According to reports, police officers were led to the house, where the shootout occurred, by a person who was arrested at the scene of the robbery. Four police officers – Inspectors Fredrick van Heerden and Nzama Victor Mathye, Constable Peter Francois Seaward and Sergeant Gert Schoeman – and eight robbers were killed.
