AfriForum welcomes the sentencing of Potgieter murders
29 July 2011
AfriForum has welcomed the sentencing of the six men found guilty of killing the Potgieter family on their Free State farm in December last year.
Two of the accused received three life sentences each.
One received a life sentence, two received sentences of 30 years and one received a seven-year sentence.
AfriForum’s Nantes Kelder, head of community safety, says the sentences will not bring the Potgieter family back, but sends a strong message to criminals.
