Rustenburg – A reward of R90,000 is offered for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of the three Highway Robbers involved in the murder of Juandré Kidson on the N4 on Saturday, 7 May.

Twenty-nine-year-old Kidson was brutally shot and killed in front of his wife and their one-year-old daughter while they were on their way home, in Brits.

An object placed in the road by Highway Robbers damaged a tyre of their vehicle. While busy changing the tyre three of them attacked him from behind. He begged them to take everything they want and pleaded with them to not hurt his family. They ransacked their car for items including a cellphone and then cold-bloodedly shot him in the head.

The killers then turned to his wife Johanette Kidson who was holding their baby girl. They attempted to take the baby from her. She fought tooth and nail to keep her daughter safe and in the process was shot in the shoulder. 

The community helped to raise funds to put up a reward for finding Kidson’s killers. “The donors wish to remain anonymous but made this donation so that the murderers can be brought to book, making the N4 safer for all road users,” Juandré’s brother Marco Kidson said.

If you have information regarding the incident, please contact Marco on 067 736 2609, or the investigating officer, sergeant Sebahane on 072 224 6805.
