Quiet start to Terre'Blanche proceedings
Ventersdorp - The scene outside the High Court sitting in Ventersdorp was quiet on Monday morning as the trial of the two people accused of murdering AWB leader Eugene Terre'Blanche resumed.
Last week, rival groups supporting Terre'Blanche's Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging and the accused demonstrated outside court, waving banners and singing songs.
AWB supporters seemed to prefer the Afrikaans song De La Rey - about a call to an old Boer War general to return to lead the Boers. A group of local residents sang President Jacob Zuma's trademark Awulethu' Mshini Wami (bring me my machine gun).
Chris Mahlangu and a minor, who may not be named, are charged with beating Terre'Blanche to death in his farmhouse outside Ventersdorp in North West 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.
On Friday, during a trial within a trial on the admissibility of evidence, two previous cases involving investigating officer Lieutenant Colonel Tsietsi Mano - one criminal and one civil - were used by the defence to question his credibility.
