Today, at the Nossa Senhora de Fatima church in Brentwood Park, Benoni, the funeral of 51-year-old Marco Rodríguez, born in Funchal, was shot dead at work on the 16th.
Today, Our Lady of Fatima Church in Brentwoop Park was too small to accommodate the large number of family, friends, acquaintances and former colleagues who gathered there to pay their last and most public tribute to a man of crime, merciless violence and brutality. Interfered in his life unnecessarily.
Recall that Marco Rodríguez was murdered by a group of five armed men who suddenly burst into flames and opened fire on the immigrant, who was fatally shot. Despite medical efforts, he did not resist the severity of his injuries.
Before the funeral procession left the church with the remains of Marco Rodrigues, and Malahleni (ex-Witbank), who will be cremated at Nkangala next Monday, the churchyard was bathed in tears by hundreds of people who had gathered there for the final farewell. About 161 km from Johannesburg in Mpumalanga Province.
Unfortunately, some of his relatives, who had traveled to South Africa to attend the relative’s funeral, had to return to Madeira due to a delay in the delivery of the remains by the South African Police Criminal Investigation Department. Despair and worst grief over the tragedy that befell them.
As usual, Portuguese and EU officials are unable to voice a protest for victims of criminal violence that takes the lives of their citizens, leaving them feeling even more helpless.
JM’s condolences to the entire family for their loss.
