Why did they gouge out her eyes?
2011-08-23 Bloemfontein Regional Court, journalist Mike van Rooyen recording: SAPS reservist and charge-office clerk Mrs Amelia Henning, 36, had fought back fiercely , kicking her murderers/rapists repeatedly on the night of 23 November 2010, the court heard today.
The local SAPS reservist and charge-office clerk was raped and stabbed to death in Hospitaal Park, Bloemfontein. According to the news at the time, nothing of value was robbed. However it now emerged that one of her murderers admitted killing her and then selling her cellphone. Her shoes were found in his house. Her naked body was discovered by two Afrikaans pupils from Dr Böhmer school nearby, Dwane Tebrugge, 17 and Alex Smith, 14. The two youths had been walking in Pasteur Drive at around 7.30am when they made the terrifying discovery. Mrs Henning was last seen at 19:30 on Nov 22 2010 when she left her home on foot in Fowler Street, Hospitaal Park, said apartment-building owner’s son Coenie Beukes. “She had fetched meat from our freezer to have a braai somewhere,’ he said. She didn’t have a car. Her ex-husband Frans’ second wife Marisa said it was the most difficult day of her life: she had to inform Amelia’s daughters Megan-Lee, 17, and Franschesc, 10, of their mother’s death. Frans was out of town at the time. I had to tell them their mommy was dead, she wept. “I am sure she didn’t go without a fight. She must have fought like a lion.’ Col. Mrs Thandiwe Qhobosheane said she ‘could not describe in words what she felt about Mrs Henning’s murder. “She was one of a kind and her death is a massive loss for the SAPS,’ she said at the time –

Why did they gouge out her eyes? Her murderers didn’t explain… but one suspect was declared insane and incarcerated in a mental hospital…
On Tuesday August 23 2011, the court heard all the gruesome details of the terrifying way in which the Afrikaans mother of two children was murdered. Initially accused of her murder/rape were Seanette Mashinini, 23; Lucky Nhgwedi, 19; and Thabo Mokoena, 18. Mashinini admitted to acting judge E.M. Kubushi that he had robbed and murdered Mrs Henning, but denied raping her – even though he admitted this earlier to the investigating officer. Nhgwedi, 19, has denied all guilt, while the co-accused Mokoena was declared insane and admitted as a patient of the State President to a mental hospital.
Mashinini said in his plea-explanation that he and ‘Thabo’ walked at the railway tracks near the Pasteur hospital when they saw the policewoman walk on the opposite side of the road. She was alone. They ran across the road, grabbed the white woman and dragged her into the veldt. Mashinini pulled down her pants and strangled her while Thabo raped her. She fought and kicked fiercely so Thabo then took out a knife and repeatedly stabbed her. Mashinini then grabbed the knife and also stabbed her. The police-forensic examination revealed that she was stabbed 30 times. Mashinini said it ‘was dark and he could not know exactly where he had stabbed her’. Henning then ‘lay still’. At that point, the two black men decided to gouge out her eyes. Mashinini then took her shoes and cellphone and sold the latter. The shoes were found in his house when he was arrested.
State advocate Silas Chalale refused to accept Mashini’s plea-explanation because he had not explained Nhgwedi’s role in Mrs Henning’s murder.
SAPS captain Francois Laux testified earlier during a trial-within-a-trial that Mashinini had pointed out specific accurate details of the murder-scene to him on 14 December 2010. During that examination of the crime-scene, Mashinini also admitted to Laux that he had also raped Mrs Henning after his comrade had done so, and that she was at that point still alive and kicking towards her assailants; and that they then had both stabbed her with the knife. They then made the joint decision to gouge out her eyes but his comrade did the gouging, Mashinini told Laux at the crime scene. Mashinini claimed yesterday that he had ‘testified yesterday because he was assaulted by police officers, and that he also told Laux for that reason that he had raped her. He was allegedly frightened that he would be assaulted again.’
