“I told Arries that I was willing to shoot Booysen and acquired a firearm and ammunition. I travelled to Clanwilliam with the firearm and was given accommodation by Arries.“On the evening of September 29, 2016, I waited for Booysen and shot at him multiple times.”On his way back to Cape Town, Webber noticed a police roadblock and asked his taxi driver not to stop.

Webber indicated that he would testify against Arries.
