“I Wanted to See the Men Accused of Killing My Son,” says Mom of Slain Durban Cop

Caz Meth has been dealing with the loss of her 23-year-old son, Jairus Joshua Govender, who was killed while traveling on the N2 highway.

She tells IOL that it’s been an emotional rollercoaster, with some days better than others.

This week, she learned that the two individuals allegedly responsible for her son’s terrible death had been apprehended.

And, while these are just allegations at this point, Meth is convinced that if SAPS arrests the appropriate people, justice will be done.

“It’s a bittersweet moment, on one hand, we will never ever have Jairus back, but on the other hand we need those who are responsible for his death to be brought to book.”

Govender, a policeman with the Port Shepstone Public Order Police, was traveling to Durban with his partner in August of last year when they encountered car difficulty.

They had been driving in different automobiles and had stopped to repair a tyre.

While doing so, they were confronted by two armed thieves who demanded smartphones and belongings, resulting in a confrontation in which Govender was wounded.

This Monday, the Directorate for Priority Crimes Investigation (Hawks) revealed that Mfaniseni Nombika, 30, and Victor Mseleku, 40, were detained and charged with Govender’s murder.

They appeared in Scottburgh Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday and are set to petition for bail next week.

Meth stated that hearing the news of the arrest and going to court to see the faces of the guys accused of your child’s killing brought back every memory of that terrible day.

“I was just beginning to return to some sense of normalcy when the news arrived. It has been quite tough to re-open wounds.”
