“We will not tolerate criminals and their activities in our area.” So said station commissioner of Boschkop SAPS, Supt Gavin The-Kisho. He wants to send a strong message to those who want to commit crime in Boschkop’s policing area: Beware, we will find you and arrest you.

On Thursday 23 July, the day of Bob Round’s murder, The-Kisho took the entire staff of the Boschkop Police Station to the scene of the crime the moment the call came in. He left only two policemen in the charge office and two admin workers at the station.

The-Kisho himself caught one of the two criminals who fled into the Bronberg after Bob’s murder and were shooting at members of the police’s dog unit and police helicopter. “We will hunt you down and put you behind bars,” is what The-Kisho said after the early dawn arrest of gang members who could be linked to Bob Round’s murder. They were also linked to David Malema’s murder and shooting Wim van den Bosch in the chest on Wednesday 22 July, as well as a spate of other house robberies and murders.

On Monday 27 July, The-Kisho’s crime-fighting policy possibly prevented yet another break-in and murder. Sgt Dickson Sebetha and Const Jack Baloyi arrested four suspects who were on their way to commit a crime.

At about 11:40 am the two policemen were doing patrols when they received a call on the radio, warning them about a suspicious vehicle driving on the R25 Bapsfontein / Bronkhorstspruit road towards Boschkop. They had to look out for a white Nissan Sentra without a front number plate. There were four men inside the car.

The policemen saw the car coming from the Bronkhorstspruit direction. When it turned right towards Cullinan, the sergeant and constable stopped and searched the car. The four men were arrested on the scene and taken to Boschkop SAPS where they were charged with the possession of an unlicensed firearm and ammunition and possible house breaking equipment.
