Louis on the loose
Louis van Schoor, East London's most famous racist serial killer has been released from prison. I remember the horrific stories that used to fly around town about this ruthless man. He was notorious well before he was arrested (East London is a small place, after all).
I saw him once - he came to watch a rugby game at my school in 1992 just before he went to prison. I remember shuddering as I recognised him. He was sitting menacingly on the sideline, a giant of a man with a long flowing beard and dark, dark eyes. He was the epitome of evil.
To me, van Schoor represents the dark, ugly face of apartheid and what it can do to people. I hope there has been a change of heart in prison, but I'm doubtful. Some people, like Eugene Terreblanche, never change.
