A musician as mass murderer

Zirk Bergh, a popular Afrikaans singer and guitarist, opened fire on his ex-wife when they met for a custody negotiation in Capetown [recte: Potchefstroom]. He killed his wife’s new husband, Charl du Randt, and a social worker handling the case, Deon Kondos. He also shot his ex-wife in the back in the presence of their two children before turning the gun on himself. Nicole du Randt died today. She was 26.

Zirk Bergh, 55, will be remembered not as a musician but as a mass murderer.

Be careful out there.

  1. Sad and terrible as this is, “mass murder” is something entirely different. If you want to point out real mass murderers, you can choose among many candidates holding high political, military, corporate or even religious positions.

  2. Common mistake, but It is Cape Town (not Capetown). More importantly, the shooting happened in Potchefstroom, about 1300 km away from Cape Town.
