Witness in gruesome Mooinooi murders killed in accident

Wilhelm Loubser (33) and his family have been under witness protection since the brutal murders of Anisha and Joey van Niekerk in December 2017.
Loubser’s family started looking for him on Saturday afternoon when he did not return home on his motorbike. A passer-by on a road in Tzaneen, heard Loubser’s phone ring and answered, telling the family member that a man was dead on the scene, the Letaba Herald reported.
Loubser and other witnesses in the Mooinooi murder case have been under police witness protection since the bail applications in the Brits Magistrates’ Court, because of threats from the accused, police testified in court.
A recording of the so-called mastermind behind the murders, Koos Strydom, giving orders for state witnesses to be executed, was recently aired on the television programme, Carte Blanche. However, family members of Loubser apparently denied that any foul play was suspected, the Letaba Herald reported.
Loubser’s family has in the meantime been moved to another place of safety.
