The murder comes as the Bredasdorp community claimed justice had been served after Zimbabwean national Gift Sibondo, 31, was found guilty in the Western Cape High Court on three charges of kidnapping, two charges of statutory rape and the murder of his teenage girlfriend, Elda Jaftha. Jaftha, 15, was found dead under Sibondo’s bed in 2015. The same year, the community was rocked by the brutal murder of 5-year-old Kayde Williams.
The child had been raped and her limbs were broken. The small town made headlines following Booysen’s horrific murder. She was raped, disembowelled by having her abdomen slit open and left for dead.
