Gatvol community leaders Fadil Adams and Oscar Lyons called on residents to go to court for the suspect’s appearance today to demand the man’s release.
Adams said residents blamed the government for discrimination against coloured people, especially concerning policing.
“This is what we say to government: ‘You put two Wendy huts in a backyard of a house, you put the unemployment there, you put the overcrowding there, you throw in drugs. That was a time bomb. Someone was going to get killed, unfortunately she was six years old.”
