I commend our courts for giving the "Modimolle Monster" two life sentences, even if this is only legal jargon. If it were practically possible to serve two such sentences, Johan Kotze would certainly deserve to do so.

I also commend Ina Bonnette for her remarkable fortitude and courage shown in her life and recovery - an inspiration to us all. I sincerely hope Kotze and his co-accused get to share a cell in prison to remind each other about the horrendous decision they made . They gave up their humanity by committing that crime.
