Fury mounts after charges withdrawn against Taegrin Morris suspect
Reiger Park Community says they have lost all hope in the justice system.
BOKSBURG - The Reiger Park Community says they have lost all hope in the justice system following the withdrawal of all charges against the man accused of killing Taegrin Morris.
The four-year-old boy was dragged behind his mother's hijacked vehicle for several kilometres and found dead next to the abandoned VW golf in July.
Thamsanqa Twala was arrested last month and accused of murder, robbery with aggravating circumstances and the possession of an unlicensed firearm.
Angry family and community members gathered outside court threatening to take the law into their own hands.
The state didn't give any reasons as to why they decided to no pursue the case against Twala.
Upon hearing the news, community members reacted with shock and outrage.
This is the second high-profile murder case in Gauteng in a week where charges have been withdrawn against an accused.
Earlier this week, charges were withdrawn against Zamokuhle Mbatha, who was accused of murdering soccer star Senzo Meyiwa due to a lack of evidence.
The police say Mbatha might be re-arrested at a later stage depending on the evidence linking him to the crime
