Makhura visited the families of Taegrin Morris, Cuburne van Wyk and Siphamandla Madikane, to update them on the cases.
Morris was dragged behind his mother's hijacked vehicle for several kilometres and found dead next to the abandoned VW Golf in July.
Van Wyk was abducted from his Reiger Park home in August and his partially burnt body was discovered a short while later on a mine dump in the area.
Madikane (10) died last November after being suffocated.
His half burnt body was discovered by a passer-by in a bush near the Ramaphosa informal settlement on Johannesburg's East Rand after he'd been reported missing.
The premier was accompanied by the Ekurhuleni mayor, his provincial Cabinet and Gauteng Police Commissioner, Lesetja Mothiba.
There was widespread anger in the community following the release of the police's sole suspect in the Taegrin Morris murder case.
Makhura says authorities are doing all they can.
"We are convinced that even with these cases here, they will finally get the perpetrators to face the music."
After a meeting with the families, the premier and his delegation addressed residents in the community at a hall and listened to their concerns about crime.
