Public violence case in Klerksdorp postponed  | News Article
A case of public violence and possession of suspected stolen goods against 12 accused arrested in Klerksdorp has been postponed to the 18th of October for further investigations and legal representation.


The 12 people were arrested following violent clashes between Klerksdorp taxi drivers and foreign nationals that started on Sunday and lasted for the better part of Monday.

This after a taxi driver was allegedly killed by foreign nationals in Pienaarsdorp.

A 28-year-old Zimbabwean national was then allegedly stabbed in his chest with a knife while at his tuck shop. He was taken to the hospital but was certified dead on arrival.

Yesterday OFM News reported that people thought to be taxi drivers went on the rampage burning and destroying taverns and businesses.

Police spokesperson, Sabata Mokgwabone, corrected his earlier statement saying preliminary results did not link them to the murder but public violence and looting of foreign nationals’ shops.
