Ndebele welcomes Worcester bombing victims

Correctional Services Minister, Sibusiso Ndebele has welcomed victims of the 1996 Worcester bombing in Pretoria. This as part of his department's Victim-Offender Dialogue programme. 

Sixty seven victims will meet Stefaans Coetzee, the youngest Worcester bomber at the Pretoria Central Correctional Centre, tomorrow.

The Worcester bombing occurred on Christmas Eve in 1996, killing four people, three of them children. Nearly 70 people were injured. 

Minister Ndebele says offenders must also be given an opportunity to reflect on their wrongs and seek forgiveness. “We want to congratulate the victims of the Worcester bombing for taking this important step to meet with Stefaans Coetzee. Another major influence in Coetzee's decision, to turn his life around was meeting one of his victims,” says Ndebele.

He says that Olga Macingwane was still limping from the damage done by Coetzee's 1996 bomb when she walked towards him on the morning just before Christmas in 2009, ready to meet him.
