One of the alleged killers of Eugene Terre’Blanche was given a hero’s send-off outside the Ventersdorp Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday.
Men whistled and women ululated after a barefooted Chris Mahlangu, 27, and a 15-year-old minor made a brief appearance in court for the AWB leader’s murder.
The two were charged with murder, housebreaking with intent to rob and robbery with aggravating circumstances, crimen injuria and attempted robbery. The accused were not asked to plead to the charges against them and the case was postponed until April 14.
National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) advocate George Baloyi explained the crimen injuria charge. “After the murder… they pulled down his (Terre’Blanche’s) pants to his knees and exposed his private parts.”
…Zola Majavu, the attorney for accused number two, the minor, said on Tuesday that reports of a confession from his client were “absolute nonsense”.
Majavu said his client didn’t hand himself over to the police. He said Mahlangu, accused number one, had called the police to arrange to have the pair picked up.
Majavu didn’t dispute that his client had worked for Terre’Blanche but could not confirm that there was a dispute over wages on the day of the murder.
Signs outside the courtroom said: “World Cup- 65 Days Until Chaos.”
