In 2012 Angy Peter was bringing up her young children with her
husband, Isaac Mbadu, in Bardale, Mfuleni, on the Cape Flats.
Angy and Isaac were activists, leading the charge for a commission
of inquiry into policing in Khayelitsha. Angy 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
instead on trial for murdering – necklacing – a young
neighbourhood troublemaker, Rowan du Preez. The State’s case
would centre on the accusation Rowan du Preez allegedly made
with his dying breath – that Angy and her husband Isaac set the
tyre alight around his neck.
Simone Haysom takes us into the heart of a mystery: was Angy
Peter framed by the police for a murder she did not commit? Or
was she, as the State argued, ‘a wolf in sheep’s clothing’, who won
a young man’s trust then turned against him, in the most brutal
Simone Haysom spent four years meticulously researching this
case and the result is a court-room drama interwoven with expert
opinion and research into crime and the state of policing in the
townships of South Africa.
