    Odd that all farmers/whites should be killed for the actions of two.

    No blood found during probe into Coligny murder accused's vehicle - police

    An investigation of the vehicle, which murder-accused farm workers Pieter Doorewaard and Philip Schutte had driven when they allegedly murdered a teen in Coligny, revealed no signs of blood, the North West High Court in Mahikeng heard on Tuesday.

    Doorewaard and Schutte denied that they killed the teen, Matlhomola Moshoeu, and claimed that he allegedly jumped from their bakkie and broke his neck.

    However, provincial head of Organised Crime Brigadier Clifford Kgorane told the court that an expert who examined the vehicle did not find any blood stains.

    Under cross-examination by advocate Hennie du Plessis, who represents Doorewaard, Kgorane testified that the vehicle was taken in for investigation five days after Moshoeu's death. The expert examined the back of the vehicle.

    "I was informed there was no blood at the vehicle," he told the court.

    Kgorane testified previously that he was embarrassed by the manner in which the case had been investigated.

    The case was initially registered as an inquest, but Kgorane said he was concerned because he was told there was an eyewitness.

    On Monday, the key witness in the murder trial claimed that Moshoeu had pleaded for his life as the men assaulted him.

    Bonakele Pakisi, the only person who allegedly witnessed the incident, told Judge Ronnie Hendricks that he saw Moshoeu crying and screaming: "Mama help, I am dying."

    The witness was at an inspection in loco on Monday.

    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.

    But Pakisi claimed the accused drove him around with Moshoeu, who was severely injured.

    The inspection was held at the request of the defence team ahead of their cross-examination of Kgorane.
    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 that 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.

    Broken sunflowers and unclear car tracks in Coligny murder case



    There were broken sunflowers at the farm where Coligny teenager Matlhomola Mosweu was found‚ brigadier Clifford Kgorane told the North West high court on Wednesday.

    Kgorane‚ who was assigned to take over the matter after Mosweu was killed‚ explained to the court that while doing his investigations‚ he saw tracks that were not clear on the footpath at the sunflower farm where Mosweu was found.

    He said he also saw broken sunflowers at the farm. Kgorane was cross-examined by defense lawyer Pieter Smit during the murder trial against Pieter Doorewaard and Phillip Schutte.

    The two are accused of killing Mosweu on April 20 last year. Smit‚ representing Schutte‚ was trying to get information about the evidence that Kgorane gave in court. Kgorane said he wanted the bakkie alleged to have been used by the two accused to be part of the investigation.

    Witness breaks down during testimony in Coligny murder trial

    A key witness in the Coligny murder trial broke down as he testified in the North West High Court in Mahikeng on Wednesday, forcing the judge to briefly adjourn the matter.

    Bonakele Pakisi told the court how he witnessed 16-year-old Matlhomola Moshoeu being pushed from a moving vehicle on April 20, 2017. He broke down and lost his composure as he relived the incident.

    Judge Ronnie Hendricks was forced to adjourn the matter for a few minutes to allow the 28-year-old to recover as he battled to speak.

    Pakisi was testifying in the trial of farmworkers Pieter Doorewaard 27, and Philip Schutte, 34, who are accused of killing Moshoeu in Coligny last year. The pair claim they caught Moshoeu stealing a sunflower on April 20, 2017.

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

    Coligny murder trial: Cop told me that evidence had disappeared, says witness

    A police officer may have been grossly negligent in the case of Coligny teenager who was allegedly murdered in April 2017.

    Bonakele Pakisi, who is the key witness in the murder trial, painted a picture of negligence and an inconsistent police officer, who he referred to as "Seponkane" during his testimony.

    Pakisi testified in the North West High Court that Seponkane had failed to gather crucial evidence after he showed him where 16-year-old Matlhomola Moshoeu had been thrown from a moving vehicle. He, instead, allegedly told him that the evidence he had pointed out had "disappeared".

    Pakisi was testifying in the trial of Pieter Doorewaard 27, and Philip Schutte, 34, who are accused of killing Moshoeu in Coligny last year. The pair claim they caught Moshoeu stealing a sunflower on April 20, 2017.

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

    During his evidence-in-chief, Pakisi told the court that the officer had requested him to point out the scene. When they arrived at the scene, they had found blood on the ground, he said.

    "He [the officer] told me he was going to call the forensic people and that I should go home," Pakisi said.

    'The police told me that I was crazy'

    He said, a day later, he met with the officer who told him that "he forgot to call the people from forensics and that the evidence has disappeared".

    'I am not making up a story' - Coligny murder trial witness

    The key witness in the Coligny murder trial has strongly defended himself, saying he has not fabricated his testimony.

    "I saw what the accused did to me. I am not making up a story," Bonakele Pakisi told the North West High Court on Monday during the trial of Pieter Doorewaard, 27, and Philip Schutte, 34.

    Pakisi was responding to questions posed to him by advocate Hennie du Plessis, for Doorewaard, who accused him of changing his version of events.

    Doorewaard and Schutte are accused of killing 16-year-old Matlhomola Moshoeu in Coligny last year. The pair claim they caught the teenager stealing a sunflower on April 20, 2017.

    "I want to put it to you that you have been fabricating your version, and changing [it] the whole time we are in court," Du Plessis told Pakisi.

    "In short, I don't believe you. Your version started with two suspects throwing the deceased from the van. Another one says there were three suspects who threw the child from the van," Du Plessis said.

    But Pakisi hit back and said: "Fabricating it how? They (accused) want to protect themselves. I didn't change anything. I have said the things the accused have done. I am not prophesying anything. Accused two [Schutte] is the one who threw him from a moving vehicle," Pakisi told the court.

    Coligny murder trial: Teen might have been thrown from moving vehicle several times, court told

    Sixteen-year-old Matlhomola Moshoeu might have been thrown from the back of a moving vehicle several times on April 20, 2017.

    This was the testimony of key witness Bonakele Pakisi in the North West High Court in Mahikeng on Monday.

    Pakisi was testifying in the trial of Pieter Doorewaard, 27, and Philip Schutte, 34 who have pleaded not guilty to charges of Moshoeu's murder, intimidation, kidnapping, theft, the unlawful possession of a firearm and ammunition and pointing a firearm.

    "He was thrown the first time and I was watching... I took the police to the scene and I explained that it appeared that the child was thrown from the vehicle again and again [because] the vehicle would move and then stop," Pakisi said under cross examination by Advocate Pieter Smit for Schutte.
