Did you know? Crime & Mystery!

South Africa has had its share of sensational crimes
Murders, kidnappings and robberies, which have both fascinated and horrified the public.
The exploits of the Stander Gang (1984), for example, have recently been turned into a Hollywood film. But do you know about the theft of the Oppenheimer jewels in 1955, the notorious poisoner Daisy de Melker or Dorothea Kraft, the first woman hanged in the Union of South Africa in 1921? Or what about the murder of Baron von Schauroth (1961), which gave rise to a new class of murder: murder on request. Or Donald Duncan Moodie (1961), the only man in South African legal history to be tried, convicted and sentenced twice for the same murder?
