    Default EFF to Coligny residents: Protest until accused are jailed

    JOHANNESBURG - The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) has urged residents in Coligny to continue protesting until two men accused of allegedly killing a teenage boy are sent to jail.

    The men claim they caught Matlhomola Moshoeu stealing sunflowers at the farm they work on. They claim the teenager jumped off their bakkie and died while they were taking him to the police station.

    Hundreds of EFF supporters from the small North West town marched to the police station on Friday, where they handed over a memorandum in protest over policing in the area.

    The march was sparked when two farm workers accused of killing a 16-year-old boy were granted bail of R5,000 each.

    Innocent until found guilty, is that only valid for ANC cadres or all people in SA?

    Default Director of Public Prosecutions to decide on Coligny case

    Coligny - The case against the two men accused of killing a 16-year-old boy in Coligny in the North West was postponed in the town's Magistrate's Court on Monday.

    The case was postponed to August 7 for the decision of the Director of Public Prosecutions on whether to prosecute or if the case should be transferred to a regional court or the high court.

    Pieter Doorewaard, 26, and Philip Schutte, 34 appeared briefly before a packed court gallery.

    Matlhomola Moshoeu's parents sat in the front row. There was a handful of protesters outside the court, some clad in EFF regalia.

    The pair allegedly caught Moshoeu, stealing sunflowers on April 20.

    They claimed 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 claimed he was killed because he was black, which apparently sparked the protests in the area.

    They were granted bail of R5 000 each last month.

    Default Why are you hiding? grieving dad asks Coligny accused

    Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) members chanted “Kill the boer, kill the farmer” as the two left court on Monday. They chanted behind them until the police stopped them and the two got into a security vehicle and sped off.

    Mosweu’s father, Sakkie Dingake, said he wanted the matter to be finalised speedily.

    “I want this case to be complete as fast as possible,” he said after the court proceedings.

    He constantly asked the accused to hold their heads up, before the court proceeding started.

    “Hold your head up, why are you hiding?” he asked of the two accused.

    The accused walked into court without looking in the direction of the deceased’s family.

    Default Coligny case postponed for final investigations

    Coligny - The case against two men accused of killing a 16-year-old boy in Coligny, North West, was postponed for final investigations in the Coligny Magistrate's Court on Monday.

    Pieter Doorewaard, 26, and Philip Schutte, 34, made a five minute appearance before court on Monday morning.

    A handful community members gathered outside the court ahead of proceedings. Some police vehicles were also parked on the premises of the court.

    State prosecutor Stephen Fritz told the court that he had met with the investigating officer and was told that there was still certain investigations which needed to be concluded before the matter could move forward.

    Fritz asked for the matter to be postponed to October 6 in order for police to complete their investigation.

    Disgruntled supporters

    Frederik van Tonder, for the two accused, asked that this be the final postponement.

    At the last court appearance the matter was postponed for the decision of the Director of Public Prosecutions on whether to prosecute, or if the case should be transferred to a regional court or High Court.

    However, on Monday, Magistrate Wikus van Loggerenberg told the court that the DPP was not in a position to make that decision yet pending the incomplete investigation.

    Economic Freedom Fighters supporters who were waiting outside the court seemed to be disgruntled by news of the postponement and began singing: "Kill the boer, the farmer".

    Doorwaard and Schutte allegedly caught Matlhomola Moshoeu stealing sunflowers on April 20.

    They claimed 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.

    Default Coligny farmers murder trial moved to high court

    Coligny - Two North West farmers, Pieter Doorewaard, 26, and Phillip Schutte, 34, who are accused of killing a schoolboy in Coligny after they caught him stealing sunflower, on Friday appeared briefly in the Coligny Magistrate’s Court, where their matter was transferred to the high court for trial.

    The State alleges the two killed Matlhomola Jonas Mosweu, 16, on April 20 at Scotland informal settlement in Coligny after accusing him of stealing sunflower from their employer's field.

    They claimed they put Mosweu at the back of a van intending to take him to the police and that he jumped out of the moving van and injured his neck. He died on his way to hospital.

    However, an eyewitness later told the police Mosweu was thrown out of a moving van.

    On Friday Magistrate Mattheus van Loggerenberg said investigations were now completed. He then postponed the matter to November 15 for a pre-trial conference at the North West High Court in Mmabatho.
