A Centurion family is still seeking justice a month after their son was killed in a hit-and-run attack.

“Justice needs to prevail so my family and I can be at peace and my son can have the eternal peace he deserves,” said mother Anita Greyvenstein.

The body of her son, Ruan Viljoen (18), was discovered by ER24 paramedics on the N14 in Centurion on Sunday morning, 19 March.

Anita said she had been struggling to get any new information to assist the police in their investigation.

“After a month of speculations and interactions with various institutions we’re still left with the assumption that the driver of a Volkswagen Golf 6 might be the culprit.”

Although the family has been driven to find out who killed Viljoen, they have acknowledged although it would not bring him back they would at least have closure.

“Justice should prevail,” said Anita.

Viljoen’s father, Sergei, said the fact that the investigation was progressing so slowly was very hard on the family.

“We need to move forward so the healing process can start,” said Sergei.

“We can’t heal because we do not have any answers.”
