The murder of 8-year-old Tazne van Wyk is yet another chilling reminder that no one is safe in South Africa. The young girl was abducted, murdered and dumped.
The man accused of killing her, Moyhdine Pangarkar, 54, has since appeared in Goodwood Magistrate’s Court.
It seems his court appearance, which had him hiding his face, has triggered an angry reaction from locals.
Frustrated by the crime in South Africa, they turned on the homes of alleged drug dealers. These homes were torched, and a car was overturned.
According to SABC News, one of the houses that were targeted is the place where little Tazne was kept after her abduction.
Earlier, Briefly.co.za found that the case has been postponed to 17 April at the Goodwood Magistrate's Court in Cape Town.
A large crowd gathered outside to show their support for the van Wyk family. The magistrate prohibited the taking and publication of pictures of Pangarker due to the sensitivity of the case.
