No arrest yet for killing

It has been just over a month since Jamestown resident Ronwille Jooste (38) died after being shot during a house robbery.

Jooste was well-known in Jamestown for his community work, including his involvement in the Jamestown Food Drive, an initiative established due to the need created by the Covid-19 pandemic.

He handed out soup as part of the initiative just hours before he was murdered. Jooste was also involved in the local Strawberry Festival.

Captain Nathalie Martin, Stellenbosch police spokesperson, says the case of murder and house robbery was still under investigation and no one had been arrested yet.

The murder took place on 5 August around 19:45 in Tiobelle Street, Jamestown.

Martin says: “According to information received, the deceased, Ronwille Clyde Jooste, and his family members were in their house at the time when an unknown male wearing a balaclava entered their house.

“The suspect had a firearm and demanded money, which the family told him they did not have.

“The suspect then threatened the family and deceased, and then took one shot at the deceased and ran away. The deceased died on the scene.”

The suspect got away with two cellphones.

* Anyone with information on this incident are requested to contact Sgt Clinton Malan on 082 566 2893 or 021 809 9142.
