The Last Words of Rowan du Preez: Murder and Conspiracy on the Cape Flats (Paperback)
FREE USA shipping.
In 2012 Angy Peter was bringing up her young children with her husband is Bardale, Mfuleni on the Cape Flats. Angy was an activist, and spent her days collecting evidence for a commission of inquiry into policing that had the chance to change law enforcement across the country's troubled townships. She was vocally against vigilante violence and a go-to person when demanding better services from the police.
But when the commission started its hearings, Angy found herself on trial for murdering - necklacing - a young neighbourhood troublemaker, Rowan du Preez. The state's case centred on the accusation Rowan had allegedly made with his dying breath - that Angy had set alight the tyre around his neck.
Simone Haysom takes us into the heart of a mystery: was Angy Peter framed by the police for a murder she didn't commit? Or was she a wolf in sheep's clothing who won a young man's trust and then turned on him in the most brutal way?
