Bikers pay tribute to local farmer Riaan Scheepers

Over 30 bikers including bikers from the Eastern Cape entered the quiet town of Alexandria with purring engines at approximately 15:00 on Sunday.

Clad in black these massive motors turned into the main street and parked on the verges next to a local church where they were greeted by members of the SAPS and the local community.

During the short program, Pastor Mare, the President of the Club, explained the purpose of their trip. He reflected on the recent incident and thanked the SAPS for their speedy response and the arrest of three suspects that was effected within 24 hours. 

He further handed out symbolic ribbons to be handed to the family of the Late Riaan Scheepers who was attacked and died as a result of his injuries. A ribbon was handed to Millie the domestic helper of the Late Mr Scheepers who was present and sang a tribute. 

After a prayer by the local Minister, Pastor Mare handed over a letter of appreciation to the Acting Cluster Commander Colonel Zeelie.

The day was rounded off with tea and snacks that were prepared by the local Ministry. Members of 911 Riders will continue on their quest tomorrow joined by local riders through the Eastern cape towards Kwa Zulu Natal.
