Chevonne Rusch murder case concluded – judgement expected on 17 November 2023

The judgement against Rochelle Botha and Stefan van Niekerk in the murder case of little Chevonne Rusch will be delivered on 17 November in the Johannesburg High Court.

Chevonne’s case resumed this morning in the Palm Ridge High Court to complete van Niekerk’s cross-examination. Van Niekerk denied the charges against him and under cross-examination repeatedly simply answered “I don’t know” or “I can’t remember”. Van Niekerk also claimed that he was unaware of wounds and marks on Chevonne’s body and claimed she fell down some stairs.

According to Moira-Marie Kloppers, spokesperson at Action Society, the public prosecutor presented a very strong case. “We believe there is enough evidence that van Niekerk was violent and abusive and that Botha was complicit and negligent. We believe justice will be served.”

Action Society was in court again today and will continue to oversee the case in court until its conclusion.
