‘Used condom found at ET murder scene’

2010-04-10 09:07

Allegations have emerged that a used condom was found in the

farmhouse bedroom where AWB leader Eugene Terre’Blanche was murdered, the

Saturday Star newspaper reported.

The newspaper said this has led to claims that Terre’Blanche was

involved in a sexual relationship with his alleged killers, 28-year-old Chris

Mahlangu and a 15-year-old boy.

Terre’Blanche’s body was found by detectives with his pants pulled

down and his genitals exposed. The newspaper reported that investigators placed

the condom, and its content, in a crime kit, to be sent for forensic testing and

will reveal the identity of Terre’Blanche’s sexual partner.

One of the charges made against the alleged killers during court

proceedings this week was of crimen injuria. At the time prosecutor George

Baloyi explained the charge of crimen injuria as: “.... they pulled down his

[Terre’Blanche’s] pants to his knees and exposed his private parts.”

Mthunzi Mhaga, the spokesperson for the National

Prosecuting Authority (NPA) told the newspaper no further comment would be made

on the charge:

“We’ve said enough. And that is that (the charge) is because Mr

Terre’Blanche’s pants were pulled down to his knees and his private parts were

showing. All other evidence will be presented at the trial.”

Johannesburg lawyer Zola Majavu, who represents the minor, would

neither confirm nor deny to the Saturday Star the discovery of the condom on the

murder site.

New AWB leader Steyn van Ronge at first told the newspaper that he

“can’t comment” on the alleged discovery of a used condom at the scene.

Later he told the newspaper that he was not aware of the condom

discovery: “If evidence is presented to support that, I will make a

comment.”

It was previously reported that Terre’Blanche had bought whisky and

several bottles of cider on the day he was murdered.

The paper reported that there were claims that

Terre’Blanche was seen on the morning of his murder at a bottle store with his

two alleged killers.

Along with the crimen injuria charge, farmworkers Mahlangu and the

minor have been charged with murder, house breaking and robbery with aggravating

circumstances and attempted robbery with aggravating circumstances.

The case was postponed to April 14. The two had not yet pleaded to

the charges. Right wing leader Terre’Blanche was murdered at his farm outside

Ventersdorp a week ago.
