Farmer in court over teen's death
Polokwane - A farmer accused of shooting two teenagers, one of whom died, appeared briefly in the Groblersdal Magistrate's Court on Monday, Limpopo police said.
The case was postponed until March 13, said Lieutenant Colonel Ronel Otto.
Pieter Swart, 57, faces charges of murder and attempted murder after he allegedly shot Alzira Mbangini, 14, and a 17-year-old because they were fishing on his land.
Swart took the boys to hospital, but Mbangini, who was shot in the head, was confirmed dead on arrival.
Swart was previously released on R5 000 bail.
He was also charged with assaulting two of his farmworkers, after he allegedly set his dogs on them and slapped one of them.
