About Roger Solik

Message from the Solik Family

We never thought we would ever have to write a letter like this to our fellow South Africans.

On Friday, 17 February 2017, we received a call from W/O Du Plessis, Branch Commander SAPS Nottingham Road. He informed us that there had been a robbery at our family home at the Bend Country Estate, and that our mother Christine Solik (57) had been found in a river murdered some 70km away from the house.

Our father, Roger Solik (66), however, is still missing.

He has fought hard against Parkinson’s disease for twenty years. Daily medication is essential for his condition and, no matter how mentally fit he is, without his medication he will become totally dysfunctional within 48 hours.

It is critical that we find our father soon as he has hours to live. If you have any information please contact SAPS 10111, W/O Du Plessis 083-777-0898, or SA CAN 08616-72226. We would be very grateful for any assistance.

Our parents were inseparable and their relationship was something to aspire to. It is hard to understand that on their community farmland estate, with rolling hills and endless nature, and neighbours 100m away, that something so violent could happen. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.

THANK YOU to SAPS Nottingham Road, The Hawks, War Rooms, K9, Flying Squad, Crime Intelligence, Search and Rescue, Ezemvelo Honorary Officers Airwing, Nottingham Road Land Owners Association, KZN Farm Associations, Careline Crisis Centre, Enforce Investigations, Together SA CAN and the outpouring from the community and friends. Whilst we find ourselves in the most difficult and tragic circumstances, the teamwork under the leadership of SAPS gives us hope.
