Thornton standing together for Jannie Niewenhuys

Thornton standing together for Jannie Niewenhuys

Personal message

I live around the corner from the late Jannie Niewenhuys, that, together with a colleague got killed whilst on duty.

You can read the story here.

We are fundraising to help the family with funeral expenses and/or support for their children. Jannie was a wonderful family man respected by many.  The money will be paid to the family (wife) of Jannie.

Two families are mourning after this terrible tragedy: those of Jannie Niewenhuys of Thornton, and those of his colleague Simthembile Nyangiwe. Thornton residents, in particular, want to stand together to specifically show solidarity to one of its fallen heroes.

Donations will be going to Marietjie Niewenhuys, wife of late Jannie Niewenhuys.
