'We will always support Anene's family'
Johannes Kana’s family says they will continue to support his rape and murder victim Anene Booysen’s family.
CAPE TOWN - Some of Johannes Kana's family members say they will always be there to support Anene Booysen's family.
Kana was convicted late last year for the rape and murder of the Bredasdorp teenager.
Kana's relatives sang along with other churchgoers during a special service for Booysen on Sunday.
His uncle, who shares the same name, says he was there to show support to Booysen's family.
"We, as the Kana family, want to be with them so that they can see we feel the same, just like them."
He says he shares their pain.
"We are here to support them. We will not stand far away from each other, but rather stand together."
Kana (22) is serving a double life sentence for Booysen's murder.
