More tensions in Gauteng - Langlaagte:
EWN Correspondent Thando Kubheka on this story: two people have been killed in looting incidents at Langlaagte near Mayfair in the south of Johannesburg. One man's body was found outside a Somali store and the other in a nearby informal settlement. The killings come after a week of violent attacks in parts of Soweto and a relatively calm weekend, sparking fears of a backlash. Police say both victims are South African. Violence and looting broke out in Soweto last week and spread to other areas in Gauteng after the killing of a 14-year-old boy who was accused of trying to rob a foreign-owned shop. The shop owner allegedly shot and killed the teen and will appear in court soon.
Paul O'Sullivan claims Louka wrong man to prosecute for Jackson murder:
Author of Killing Kebble, Mandy Wiener on this story: Forensic consultant Paul O’Sullivan says officials are prosecuting the wrong person for the murder of the owner of Teazers strip club, Lolly Jackson. It has emerged that George Louca - the man believed to be the triggerman in the murder - has signed a statement revealing all about the night Jackson was murdered. Louca names Czech fugitive Radovan Krejcir as the triggerman. Krejcir has always denied any involvement in the shooting and his lawyer says he won't respond to Louca's allegations. Jackson was shot dead at Louca’s rented house in Edleen in 2010. O'Sullivan - who has had a long running feud with the Czech - says he has seen Louca's statement.
