Humanitarian aid organisation, Gift of the Givers has welcomed the arrest of a 21-year-old man, in connection with the murder of one its volunteers, Ameeroedien Noordien, in Philippi. Twenty-year-old Noordien was shot and killed when he was caught in gang crossfire in Hanover Park last week. Police say the suspect handed himself over to authorities. Gift of the Givers spokesperson, Dr Imtiaz Sooliman: "But let this only be the beginning of all those other people, innocent people who have been killed let those dockets be reopened and let this be the beginning of bringing all those people to book. My special thanks is to the police minister and his generals and all the police who worked so diligently to make an arrest in such a short space of time."
