Krugersdorp killings


The three murderers known as the Krugersdorp Killers have been handed a number of life sentences each.   Cecilia Steyn, Zack Valentine and Marcel Steyn had been convicted on 32 counts, including murder, fraud and intimidation.   The court found that the three and at least three others were behind the brutal murders of 11 people between 2012 and 2016.   The trio were part of a group called Electus per Deus which means “chosen by god”.

Judge Ellem Francis did not hold back when handing down sentences on Cecilia Steyn, Zack Valentine and Marcel Steyn.   He found that there were no compelling circumstances to move from the minimum prescribed sentences.

Marcel Steyn, however, was sentenced differently for two of the murders.   Instead of being sentenced to life for those killings, she was handed 15 years each, because she was 14 when she committed the crimes.   She was still, however, given seven life sentences for the other murders she was party to, while Valentine and Cecilia Steyn were handed eight and 13 life sentences respectively.

The sentences will run concurrently.


The three Krugersdorp killers, calling themselves Electus per Deus or Chosen by God heard their fate on Monday.

In a television first, we also bring you never-before-seen footage of the arrests, and finally speak to victims’ families who have waited more than three years for justice.


Character analysis has been the focus so far during the mitigation prior to sentencing of convicted Krugersdorp killers Cecilia Steyn, Zak Valentine and Marcel Steyn.
