Police investigating the brutal rape and murder of Soweto schoolgirl Thato Radebe must be commended for their commitment to solving the crime.

Nearly two weeks after the dastardly deed police have already arrested five suspects.

The arrests have obviously raised hopes - especially among family , relatives and friends - that the motive for the rape and murder of the 14-year-old teenager will be revealed in court when the suspects' trial starts.

What remains is for the police to ensure that all the incriminating evidence at their disposal is solid enough to secure a conviction.

This is the conclusion that not only Thato's family must be hoping for but also society, which was outraged by the gruesomeness of the crime.
