Posted on | april 30, 2011 | 3 Comments

Jeanette Odendaal called 10111 before a black SAPF sergeant shot her dead outside Kempton Park police station on April 28 2011. The unarmed Afrikaner woman was calling 10111 on her cellphone just moments before a black Kempton Park police-sergeant shot her at close range, killing her. She was parked outside the police station inside her car on Tuesday night.

More than 1,000 people fell victim to excessive police violence last year
The SA independent police directorate also admitted today that more than 500 people were shot dead and/or assaulted by police members in the previous book year. In addition there have also been 566 people who died while they were in police custody. The SA police this year also got renamed to the SA Police Force, instead of SA Police Service.

the fact that Jeanette Odendaal was on her cellphone inside her car with her window rolled up, calling the 10111 emergency number, showed she was ‘in distress’, said a close girl-friend In an exclusive interview with Express journalist Gerhardt Theron. The girlfriend did not want to be identified publicly. She spoke to Theron at the Kempton Park Police Station on Friday, April 29 while the Commissioner of Police spoke to Odendaal’s father Nick Odendaal and also to her female partner in a blaze of media attention. Print, radio end television media swamped the station as national police commissioner Bheki Cele and Gauteng Police Commissioner Mzwandile Petros, spoke to the family. The female friend told Theron that ‘it looked as if the bullet entered through Odendaal’s shoulder, came out of her chest and then ricochetted from the car back into her stomach.” Odendaal lived in Aston Manor with her female partner and had no children. The black sergeant has been with the force for 17 years.

Killer cop case postponed
The case against SA Police Force sergeant Manape Phineas Kgoale, 38, was postponed during his remand hearing in regional court 2 in Kempton Park. After three hours of confusion Kgoale appeared briefly and had his case postponed to May 4 for a bail application. He was not asked to plead, however he is facing a charge of murder. The court also heard he might be charged with a schedule 5 or 6 offence, depending on whether he had previous convictions.Up until a few minutes before Kgoale appeared, court officials deliberately sent reporters on a wild goose chase looking for him around the courthouse. Relatives of Odendaal and police officers also were at court: the latter showed up to ‘show support for their colleague’. Kgoale’s family refused to comment.

    Hi, I am a journalist doing a research piece on the increase of police brutality in South Africa. I am curious, why the repetition of emphasis of the race and nationalities of the victim and perpertrator? are you attempting to draw a racial link?
