The two attackers showed no remorse…

December 8 2010 By Hanti Otto – What three Bronkhorstspruit women went through resembled a “thriller movie”, a prosecutor said yesterday before their two vicious torturer/kidnappers/murderers were sentenced to 74 years and 59 years in jail. State prosecutor Elize Schoeman told Bronkhorstspruit Regional Court that Daniel Motshwarateu, 23, and Helton Matsimela, 28, did not show any remorse for the seven-hour ordeal they put the victims through on February 18 last year.

Motshwarateu worked as a gardener for Annatjie Myburgh and her husband. On that fateful day the two attacked Annatjie, 56, and her domestic worker, Paulina Moiana, 28, in the Myburgh home. Annatjie was burned with a hot iron and both women beaten and tortured. Annatjie’s daughter-in-law, Edri Myburgh, 27, arrived, walking in on the attack. The attackers drove them out on a deserted road with the family vehicle and shot the two Myburghs in the head. They drove further with Moiana, who was critically injured when they lost control of the car and crashed it.

  • Edri regained consciousness and walked more than 10km to get help. Annatjie was rescued when a motorist saw the badly injured Afrikaner women.
  • The court heard that Motshwarateu had previously also broken into the Myburgh home, stealing firearms and ammunition. The men also tried to withdraw money with the women’s ATM cards.

It appeared Motshwarateu, who had worked for the Myburghs, had initiated the whole attack. Motshwarateu claimed the attack happened “because he was not paid” – however said Cook he’d clearly lied: his accomplice contradicted this claim by testifying that “Motshwarateu had told him there was money in the house and they should rob it. “

“A trusted worker the women would open the door to…”-  to carry out a gruesome crime…

Because he worked for them, Motshwarateu said the family would open the door for him. “It seems these crimes were well-planned. One accused had broken into the house beforehand to steal weapons. This was a gruesome crime. You burnt the older lady with a clothing iron, left her just like that and put her in the vehicle with the domestic worker. When Edri arrived, she was also kidnapped.”
