They are shooting the people down like flies..’ – angry dad
2010-06-10 LYTTELTON, Pretoria. Afrikaner golf-coach Madeleine Kleinhaus, 21, was shot ad injured at point-blank range by two black men while she was inside her parents’ bakkie, who had stopped at a road-side stand near the Italian team’s Leriba Lodge in Lyttelton on Thursday 11am.
Ms Kleinhaus, who works as a local golf coach, was rushed to hospital with arm- and leg-wounds, reports Beeld journalist Hilda Fourie. Furious dad Stefan said he was going to ‘take his daughter from this Sodom and Gomorra and take her back to Pongola with them.
“They are shooting the people down like flies,’ he fumed. He and wife Santa had arrived in Centurion on Monday to buy vehicle-parts and withdrew cash at the First National Bank in Centurion – and while returning to Madeleine’s house, had stopped near the low-water crossing very close to the Leriba Lodge, to talk to a man selling tables along the roadside.
Mr Kleinhaus had climbed from his bakkie while Madeleine and her mom remained seated inside.
“Two men walked up to our bakkie from the front and I said to my mom, ‘now here’s trouble’. The women locked the bakkie’s doors. One man tried to open the driver’s door – but when Mr Kleinhaus saw this and walked towards them, the black man pointed a handgun at the father - while the other man pointed a firearm at his daughter – and pulled the trigger, shooting her right through the window.
How did they know her father had just withdrawn cash from the Lyttelton bank?
“They shouted at my mother, screaming, ‘where’s the bag, where’s the bag' !’ (referring to the cash they’d just withdrawn from the bank). “They knew exactly what they wanted.\,’ she said.
“ I felt myself getting very warm and warned my parents that I’d been shot and that they had to help me because I would die otherwise.’
The men stole the cash-bag and walked away – while Mr Kleinhaus alerted a passing motorist who took the injured Madeleine and her terrified mother to the hospital. “We did nothing wrong,” said the daughter. “We were just driving along on the road, and had stopped next on the roadside to buy something, when I was shot. After this event I have discovered that one’s life is not in one’s own hands.” SAPS spokeswoman Ms Aveline Hardaker ‘confirmed the incident’. And that’s all she said about that. http://www.beeld.com/Suid-Afrika/Nuus/Geskiet-toe-pa-stop-om-iets-te-koop-20100610
