Reiger Park community threatens to take law into their own hands
The community say they’re tired of being tormented by criminals in their own community.
JOHANNESBURG - Some Reiger Park residents have threatened to take the law into their own hands if the man accused of the murder of four-year-old Taegrin Morris is granted bail.
The young boy was dragged to his death behind his mother's hijacked vehicle in July.
Thamsanqa Twala appeared in the Boksburg Magistrates Court for the first time on Wednesday where his case was postponed.
Residents could not hold back their anger on Wednesday as Twala entered the court.
They say they're tired of being tormented by criminals in their own community.
One man said "It's inhumane that another human being can drag someone for eight kilometres."
The community has also called on authorities to find Twala's accomplices.
Twala was arrested in Katlehong on the East Rand on Monday.
He will return to court on Tuesday, where the state has indicated it will be opposing bail.
Meanwhile, Morris's family says after three months of pain, they've received some hope that justice will prevail.
