Police are to be lauded for tracking down the leader of the notorious Roto gang, who has been on the run for the past four years.
The mob had conducted a reign of terror in Johannesburg and Soweto before some of them were arrested in 2004 in connection with the gruesome death of their own member.
Four of the members were convicted and jailed for the crime.
Now that their leader has been arrested, police should prepare and present a solid case against the man whose gang have terrorised the community.
Such criminals deserve no place in our society.
