    So the way I see it, is if you force someone on the back (of a bakkie) you are to blame for whatever happens to them. Idiots.

    Police official 'embarrassed' by handling of Coligny case, court hears

    A senior police official told the North West High Court in Mahikeng that he was "embarrassed" about the handling of the Coligny murder case.

    "I was embarrassed because members of the community said police are not doing their work," Provincial Organised Crime Head Brigadier Clifford Kgorane said.

    "I could hear from the community leaders that the suspects involved are known but not arrested," he added.

    Kgorane was testifying in the trial of Pieter Doorewaard, 26, and Philip Schutte, 34, who are accused of killing 16-year-old Matlhomola Moshoeu in Coligny.

    Doorewaard and Schutte allegedly caught Moshoeu stealing a sunflower on April 20, 2017. They claimed that they had driven 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.

    Kgorane told the court that the investigating officer told him that he could not change the investigation to a murder because "the witness was mentally ill".

    "I said: 'You are not a doctor to make that conclusion'."

    Kgorane met with the eyewitness, who gave him a description of the accused and told him who had driven the vehicle and who had pushed Moshoeu, the court heard.

    He also told the court that, after Moshoeu's death, the vehicle the accused had driven on the day of the incident had not been taken in for investigation.
    It was only when the accused handed themselves over to the police that he asked for the vehicle to be handed

    over, he said.

    Kgorane added that, after Moshoeu's death, he went to the police station and found school pupils protesting outside. Residents also refused to leave the police station until justice was done, the court heard.

    "Community leaders were insisting that the child was killed," Kgorane said.

    The court also heard evidence from Constable Kgomotso Kgabi, who is stationed at the Coligny police station.

    Kgabi said she received a call from Warrant Officer Jeremiah Modisane, who told her what had happened to Moshoeu.

    She immediately went to the scene and found Moshoeu lying on the ground. Two people were with him at the scene, she said.

    "The boy was lying face down in a pool of blood. He was struggling to breathe," she testified.

    Kgabi testified that bystanders told her that two men had asked them to stay with Moshoeu while they went to the police station to request an ambulance.

    "They (the bystanders) looked afraid of being close to him....they told me they never went close to the boy," she said.

    While Kgabi presented her evidence, Moshoeu's parents sat in the front row of the public gallery and listened attentively as she described how she found the boy on scene.

    Next to Moshoeu's parents was as a group of EFF supporters.

    On Thursday, the court heard that the pair refused to return to the scene after they reported the incident to the police. Warrant Officer Modisane testified that the farm workers seemed "bothered" when they approached him and asked him to call an ambulance.

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

    Moshoeu's 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.

    The trial continues.

    Coligny murder accused to visit death scene of Matlhomola Moshoeu

    An inspection in loco is expected to be held on Monday in the trial of two farm workers, who are accused of killing 16-year-old Matlhomola Moshoeu in Coligny last year.

    Lawyers for Pieter Doorewaard, 26, and Philip Schutte, 34, requested the court to hold the inspection before they cross-examine provincial Organised Crime Head Brigadier Clifford Kgorane.

    Kgorane testified earlier in the day that he was embarrassed by the manner in which the case was investigated.
    He said the case was initially registered as an inquest but added that he was concerned because he was told there was an eyewitness.

    The two accused allegedly caught Moshoeu stealing a sunflower on April 20, 2017. But they claimed that they drove him to the local police station, and that he jumped off their bakkie along the way and broke his neck. However, the eyewitness alleges that he was pushed.

    Kgorane met with the eyewitness, who gave him a description of the accused. He said the witness told him who drove the vehicle and who allegedly pushed Moshoeu.

    In court on Friday, Schutte's advocate Pieter Smit submitted that Kgorane was the only police officer who went back to the scene with the eyewitness.

    Smit would like to cross-examine him on certain aspects of his evidence.
    However, the defence wanted an inspection in loco to be held first.

    Judge Ronny Hendricks granted the application and told the accused to be at the Coligny police station on Monday at 09:00.

    The accused have pleaded not guilty to charges of murder, intimidation, kidnapping, theft, the unlawful possession of a firearm and ammunition, and pointing a firearm.

    Moshoeu's 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.

    There has been a lot of misinformation going around about the new law regarding transporting people on the back of bakkies or in the goods compartment of any vehicle, but this is what the new law actually means…

    On Thursday, 11 May 2017 it will officially become illegal to transport children in the goods compartment in any vehicle, this refers to the back of bakkies or other goods vehicles, like the boot of a car, hatchback or minibus for a reward.

    The keyword in that sentence is reward – this means that people can still be transported in the goods departments if:

    There is no reward or fee involved. This means having persons in the goods compartment for recreational purposes is still legal. This law was put in place mainly because of all the road deaths and accidents involving children who were transported to school sitting in the back of bakkies.
    granted there may have been amendments since May last year but nothing is coming up in searches except that quoted

    It's legal. Depending on the height of the sides you may have to be seated though.

    Coligny trial: Key witness says slain teenager pleaded for his life

    The key witness in the Coligny murder trial claims the late Matlhomola Moshoeu pleaded for his life as he was assaulted by two farm workers for allegedly stealing a sunflower in April last year.

    Bonakele Pakisi, the only person who allegedly witnessed the incident, told North West High Court Judge Ronny Hendricks that he saw 16-year-old Moshoeu crying and screaming: "Mama help, I am dying."

    The witness was at an inspection in loco on Monday.

    Pakisi, who alleges that Moshoeu was pushed from a moving vehicle by farm workers Pieter Doorewaard and Philip Schutte, pointed out various scenes where the alleged offences took place.

    ALSO READ: 'Accused seemed shocked over Matlhomola Moshoeu's death'

    He pointed out a spot near Rietvlei farm in Coligny, where he claims he saw the accused assaulting Moshoeu.

    The pair allegedly caught Moshoeu stealing a sunflower on April 20, 2017.

    Doorewaard and Schutte claimed that they intended to drive him to the local police station but that he jumped off their bakkie along the way and broke his neck.

    Dressed in matching black trousers and checked shirts, the men showed no emotion during the walk-about and stayed close to their lawyers.
