Andre Visagie attends Terre'Blanche trial
Ventersdorp - Leader of the Gelofte Volk (People of the Covenant) rightwing movement, Andre Visagie, arrived at the High Court sitting in Ventersdorp on Wednesday morning to attend the trial of Eugene Terre'Blanche's alleged killers.
Visagie covered his face as he arrived just before court proceedings were due to start, with a guard dressed in camouflage uniform by his side.
Visagie is the Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging's (AWB) former general secretary.
In 2010 he resigned to start a new organisation, Gelofte Volk Republikeine, saying he wished to fulfil a promise he made to slain party leader Eugene Terre'Blanche.
Visagie appeared in the Kimberly Magstrate's Court last year after being arrested on charges of unlawful possession of firearms and ammunition.
A few supporters for the two accused, Chris Mahlangu and a minor who may not be named, were gathered outside court.
The two are accused of beating and hacking Terre'Blanche to death in his North West farmhouse in April 2010. Both have pleaded not guilty to murder, housebreaking, and robbery with aggravating circumstances.
Mahlangu claims he acted in self defence. The teenager has denied involvement in the crime.
