Inspector Noko in the witness box
The Covid-19 pandemic resulted in the closure of our Courts located in hot spot areas and while this led to a massive backlog in the hearing of criminal matters, we are very pleased to be able to let you know that our Inspector Siviwe Noko has received notification that the trial of the two men accused of the brutal stabbing of Benji will resume later this month.
Inspector Siviwe Noko has remained steadfast in his dedication and his whole heart is invested into this horrific case - even if the system has been slow at serving up justice!
He first started investigating this matter on the 11th of May 2018 and his pursuit of justice remains as passionate now as it was then.
Thank you for continuing to support the work of this man who goes bravely where others fear to tread and who witnesses horrific suffering and neglect of animals every day of his life. Preventing animal cruelty is not an easy task. The only comfort he has, is knowing that he is able to rescue thousands of animals every year thanks to donors like you who walk beside him every step of the way.
Inspector Siviwe Noko will continue to be the voice for those who cannot speak for themselves and soldiers on firm in the belief that animal cruelty must stop. No animal should suffer.
Thank you for encouraging the heart of this man with your contributions in respect of his pursuit for justice for the animal victims of cruelty. It is because you care that he has the privlege of giving a voice to the voiceless in a court of law and this man would never want to do anything else.
Thank you for caring about an animal that you have only ever read about and thank you for investing in the punitive efforts of the SPCA's Inspectorate department. The only way we will ever see harsher penalties for the perpetrators of crimes against animals is if we remain in the court rooms! Thank you for keeping us there.
We will update you again soon with news from the frontline and hope that we can bring you news of sentencing at last.
