    You are probably right. That is why we need to know who funds these people. They are most likely the people who benefit most from supporting divisive policies and actions. Know who they are and people will stop supporting them financially, they will withdraw their funding and the parties depending on it will dissappear. Time for some brave soul to drop the bank statements of these parties. Shine some light on these evil people.

    Mahikeng – The two men accused of killing a 16-year-old boy in Coligny, in the North West, will go on trial in March 2018.

    They claim they were driving him to the local police station when he allegedly jumped off their bakkie and broke his neck.

    An eyewitness alleges he was pushed off.

    Some residents claim he was killed because he was black. His death sparked protests in the area, which saw a number of houses and business burnt to the ground.

    Doorewaard and Schutte are out on bail of R5 000 each.

    2 men accused of killing Coligny teen plead not guilty

    Mahikeng – The men accused of killing a teenage boy in Coligny pleaded not guilty in the North West High Court in Mahikeng on Tuesday.

    The two farm workers – Pieter Doorewaard, 26, and Philip Schutte, 34 – pleaded not guilty on charges of murder, intimidation, kidnapping, theft, unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition, and pointing of a firearm.

    In their plea explanation, the men disputed that they had unlawfully and intentionally killed Matlhomola Moshoeu by throwing him out of a moving vehicle.

    They also disputed that they unlawfully had in their possession an unlicensed firearm.

    Doorewaard and Schutte allegedly caught Moshoeu stealing sunflowers on April 20, 2017.

    They claimed they were driving him to the local police station when he jumped off their bakkie and broke his neck.

    An eyewitness alleges that Moshoeu was pushed off the bakkie.

    'No injuries to the hands'

    The two men appeared calm during proceedings.

    Moshoeu's parents were also in court, accompanied by relatives.

    The State called their first witness, Dr Ruweida Moorad, who is a specialist forensic pathologist.

    Moorad told the court that she had conducted between 5 000 and 8 000 autopsy reports. She said she had investigated numerous cases of people who had died as a result of falling from vehicles.

    She testified that Moshoeu's injuries were consistent with a fall or jump from a vehicle. She, however, said she did not observe any signs that Moshoeu had tried to protect himself when he "jumped".

    "There were no injuries documented to the hands, his protective mechanism[s] were not employed," she said.

    She also told the court that Moshoeu – whose name means "Sorrow" – had severe external injuries.
    Following Moshoeu's death, some residents claimed he had been killed because he was black. His death sparked protests in the area, which saw a number of houses and businesses burnt to the ground.

    Doorewaard and Schutte are out on bail of R5 000 each.

    Murder-accused Coligny farm workers refused to return to scene, court hears

    Mahikeng – Two men arrested in connection with the death of a 16-year-old boy in Coligny, refused to return to the scene after they reported the incident to the police.

    This was the evidence presented in the North West High Court in Mahikeng during the trial of the two men on Thursday.

    Warrant Officer Jeremiah Modisane testified that the men – farm workers Pieter Doorewaard, 26, and Philip Schutte, 34 – seemed "bothered" when they approached him and asked him to call an ambulance.
    It is alleged that Doorewaard and Schutte allegedly caught Matlhomola Moshoeu stealing a sunflower on April 20, 2017. They claimed that they drove him to the local police station, but that he jumped off their bakkie along the way

    and broke his neck.

    However, an eyewitness alleges that he was pushed off.

    On Tuesday, the men pleaded not guilty to charges of murder, intimidation, kidnapping, theft, the unlawful possession of a firearm and ammunition, and pointing a firearm.

    'He was inhaling in a pool of blood'

    In his evidence-in-chief, Modisane explained that the men said they had caught Moshoeu red-handed while they were patrolling.

    "They did not have the sunflower with them. They also did not explain the boy's injuries to me," he testified.

    He said the men refused to return to the scene where Moshoeu lay and claimed that they had to attend to their businesses.
    Modisane, who has been a police officer for 31 years, added that he went to the scene and found that Moshoeu had hit his head.

    He said Moshoeu was still alive at the time.

    "He was inhaling in a pool of blood (sic)," Modisane said.

    Moshoeu died later in hospital. His death sparked protests in the area and some residents claimed he was killed because he was black. Several houses and businesses were burnt to the ground.

    Doorewaard and Schutte are out on R5 000 bail each.

    'Coligny murder accused did not have emergency numbers'

    Mahikeng - Two North West farm workers accused of killing a teenager in Coligny drove the boy to a police station because they did not have emergency medical contact numbers at their disposal, the North West High Court heard on Thursday.

    "Accused one and two did not have ambulance contact numbers, they went to the [Coligny] police because they believed the police station was the nearest place where they could find help," Hennie du Plessis, for the defence, told the court.

    He was cross-examining Warrant Officer Moremi Modisane in the trial of Pieter Doorewaard, 26, and Phillip Schutte, 34, accused of the murder of Matlhomola Jonas Mosweu.

    Modisane told the court that Doorewaard and Schutte arrived at the police station and requested him to call and ambulance.

    'No need for Coligny accused to return to crime scene'

    Mahikeng - There was no need for two farm workers in the Coligny murder trial to return to the crime scene, the North West High Court heard on Thursday.

    Defence advocate Hennie du Plessis told the court that the accused did not go to the accident scene because Warrant Officer Moremi Modisane told them to go.

    "You told them there was no further need to attend the scene, if there was a need you will call them in their cellphones," Du Plessis said.

    "You confirmed to accused one at 10:08 that you have summoned an ambulance."

    Modisane denied informing the two to leave, he also denied promising them he would call an ambulance.

    In his testimony Modisane said that Pieter Doorewaard, 26, and Phillip Schutte, 34, refused to go back to the scene.

    The State alleges the two assaulted Matlhomola Jonas Mosweu and threw him out of a moving van, on April 20, 2017 at Rietvlei farm near Coligny after accusing him of stealing sunflower from their employer Pieter Karsten's sunflower plantation.

    That's a sentence weirdly put together.

    "Told them to leave" would make it easier.

    To go or not to go, that is the question.
    I am of a nation that would not allow that fear of death, of torture, of imprisonment, of exile or persecution should result in the perpetuation of injustice.
