The office of the provincial commissioner of police in the Free State has revealed the names of the accused in the murder of Brendin Horner. They are Sekwetje Isaiah Mahlamba (32) and Sekola Piet Matlaletsa (44). They remain in custody until they appear in Senekal Magistrate’s Court again on October 16.
Police described the violence in court after the two’s court appearance as “a rebellious group of farmers who stormed the courthouse and demanded that the suspects be handed over to them”.
AfriForum believes farm murders are a form of terrorism, according to a statement issued by the civil rights organization on Tuesday.
The statement is in response to the murder of Paul Roux’s Brendin Horner.
“The solution to the problem of farm murders is twofold. The message about farm murders must be taken to the corners of the world and the council chambers of the United Nations to ensure that the international community takes note of it, ”said Ernst Roets
