Its easier to steal while citizins are fighting each other over something. It is also very nice for clinging to power by having an enemy for the majority. It does not look like the farmers can get a fair trial, and if they are innocent and let free they will not be safe. The question is what will other farmers do?The circumstances don't help. Many people who are employed in the municipal district lives in those communities. People are angry, a mother lost her children and I believe the one Coka was engaged.
What happened on that day is irrelevant, all the community know is that two brothers died, and they support their plight by evoking prior grievances. Add the land question, add the political meddling, etc. The circumstances are explosive.
The state will give their support to the communities in those areas as they always do, other than evicting them...
Think about Yende the security guard, he may have also lived in those communities. Where is he going now, innocence won't help him, he is ostracised, what about his relatives in those communities?
This is a pot boiled over because the state allowed it.
