Hundreds of Eldorado Park community members gathered in the area on Thursday night to remember 16-year-old Nathaniel Julies who was shot and killed last week, allegedly by police. They called for the trial of those accused of murdering Julies to be broadcast live and that the main road be named in his memory.
Eldorado Park residents said on Thursday they were pleased at the rate the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (Ipid) was investigating the matter.
Prisoner rights activist Golden Miles Bhudu, in his capacity as spokesperson for the Local Development and Economic Civil Association in Eldorado Park, said the community was excited to hear about the third arrest because it was one step closer to making sure those responsible would be brought to justice.
“We are starting to see Ipid in a positive light because of their dedication to concluding investigations.
“We, as the community, will not rest until the murderers have suffered for their deeds,” Bhudu said.
