Miguel’s mom vents on so­cial me­dia af­ter sus­pect handed bail


THE mother of mur­dered 9-year-old Miguel Louw, Ray­lene, took to so­cial me­dia at the week­end to vent her frus­tra­tion af­ter she dis­cov­ered her child’s al­leged killer was out on bail.

She wrote: “The **** is out of jail ... I have to live with the pain and suf­fer­ing and the heartache and know­ing that I will never be able to hold my child again and all these thoughts in my mind of what my child went through ... it’s just not fair.

“My boy was only 9 years old he did not even get a chance to live his life. My an­gel is gone .... ”

Po­lice could not con­firm that Mo­hamed Va­hed Ebrahim had been re­leased on bail last week.

How­ever his at­tor­ney, Chris Gounden, said his client had been re­leased.

“I’m not sure on which day he was re­leased but he came to my of­fice last week and un­for­tu­nately I was not in at that time.”

Ebrahim was the last per­son seen with the Grade 4, Rip­pon Road Pri­mary School pupil in July.

Miguel’s body was found last month in a shal­low grave in Long­berry Drive, Phoenix, me­tres away from the 43-year-old ac­cused’s home.

The fam­ily’s spokesper­son, Vasthi Williams, said Louw acted in frus­tra­tion and fear.

“There is an on­go­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tion and this guy is walk­ing free. Ray­lene feels as though he is laugh­ing in their faces, as though he is an un­touch­able. It’s hard for her as a mom. Her son was taken away. She searched for him. We must un­der­stand the emo­tions from the mother’s point.”

The case is due back in court later this month.
