Vorajee Culpable Homicide
On Friday, 16th October 2020 at 10:30 we activated Starlite VCAT-7 Air Support (NPO) to Harrismith to assist Const. Rajen Sanders, a KZN Provincial Organised Crime (Hawks) Member, with his extended family after a high impact collision involving their car and a truck which had veered onto their side of the road. Rajen over the many years of working together has become a brother to me.
Sadly Lameeha (Aged 8) and Yuusuf (Aged 6) Vorajee were declared deceased at the scene, and their father Muhammad was rushed to hospital in critical condition. No words can sum up the loss of two children that was experienced on that tragic day – with tears and prayers being poured out as the remaining family members struggled to cope with their unimaginable loss.
The SAPS investigation and all processes are being followed and supported by SVS (Specialised Victim Support) Stage 1 Hot – 72 hours to 90 days. Being immersed in this case has once again underlined the desperate need for rapid development and rollout of the SVS platform for our country.
