Impala Park Shooting: Swanson Denied Access to His Residence



Impala Park shooting

Amid the ongoing legal proceedings surrounding the Impala Park shooting, Evan Swanson (73) finds himself barred from visiting his residence. The latest development emerged during the hearing at the Boksburg Magistrate’s Court on March 11. Magistrate Nomalanga Mqambeli ruled regarding an amendment to Swanson’s bail conditions, effectively prohibiting him from returning home.

Standing in the dock, an emotional Swanson expressed dismay at the decision and questioned whether he could visit his wife. Despite his residency and visitation rights restrictions, Mqambeli stipulated that Swanson must report to the Edenvale SAPS every second Friday.

The case revolves around allegations that Swanson fatally shot his neighbour, Klaas du Toit, on August 18. Swanson has maintained his actions were in self-defence. Granted bail of R5 000 on September 4, the court initially mandated that Swanson reside with his daughter in Edenvale until the legal proceedings concluded. Additionally, he was required to report to the Edenvale SAPS every Friday.

However, Swanson sought amendments to these conditions during an appearance on October 23. Upon encountering Swanson near a local grocery store and at Swanson’s residence, concerns were raised about the emotional impact on Klaas’ twin brother, Roelf.


The magistrate postponed the matter to April 16 to allow for further investigations.
