THE FIRST MURDER COMMITTED IN SIXTEEN MONTHS.
MURDERED: Cindy Hart
It’s a sentiment shared by millions today as they struggle to come to terms with what must surely be a devastating blow to the five year long utopia brought about by the revolutionary Project H.
The body of 28 year old social worker Cindy Hart, wife of renowned police inspector Sam Hart, was discovered this morning by her long time friend and colleague, Gaynor Jansen, who went to
check up on her only to discover her body motionless and slumped over her desk, victim of a brutal strangulation.

“How could this happen? Project H is supposed to have stopped this,” Jansen remarked. Indeed, serious questions are being asked as to why this could have happened at a time when Project H all but eradicated crime from the province.
ON THE CASE: Captain Ryk Botha
However, lead investigator on the case, Captain Ryk Botha, said something like this was inevitable, but he’s sad that it had to hit so close to home.
“I think it was unrealistic to expect Project H would solve all our problems,” he said. “Crime pays, and as long as it does people will be cashing in. It’s just sad that it had to happen to someone like Inspector Hart, who I care deeply for. Our thoughts should be with him now.”
Project H was released five years ago with its creator, Jasper King, promising the impossible - to all but eradicate crime and poverty from a nation being held hostage by it.
He said he would start with a few municipalities in Cape Town, then move on to other major cities, then eventually direct his “groundswell of change” towards all the provinces until eventually the country was cured.
Many were no doubt sceptical, but when the crime rate began to plummet and the employment rate skyrocketed, the nation stood up and took notice as a paradise spawned around them, many not even realizing that the past sixteen months had gone by without a single murder.
And then this!
“No stone will be left unturned in bringing this killer to book,” Captain Botha told reporters as he left the crime scene. “I’ll make it my life’s purpose!”
