Residents of Keetmanshoop demands justice in killing of Elleste Plaatjies


Residents of Keetmanshoop joined by NEFF activist Michael Amushelelo marched to the Magistrates' Court to demand justice for 31-year-old Elleste Plaatjies, who was allegedly killed by police officers.

The protestors handed a petition over to the Magistrate's Control Prosecutor, Lewis Chigunwe opposing the granting of bail to two police officers arrested in connection with Plaatjies' murder. 

They maintain that if the police officers are released on bail, they may influence the ongoing police investigation into the murder case.
