State: Find Terre'Blanche accused guilty
Ventersdorp - The State has called for both people accused of killing rightwing leader Eugene Terre’Blanche to be found guilty.
"The State’s submission is that both accused should be found guilty as charged on all counts," prosecutor George Baloyi told the High Court sitting in Ventersdorp on Wednesday.
Baloyi described the case as extraordinary because the two did not run away after the murder, and walked a great distance to alert the police.
Chris Mahlangu and a teenager are charged with beating Terre'Blanche to death in his farmhouse outside Ventersdorp, North West, on April 3 2010.
Both have pleaded not guilty to murder, housebreaking, and robbery with aggravating circumstances.
Mahlangu has claimed he acted in self-defence. The teenager has denied involvement in the crime.
Baloyi dismissed Mahlangu's claims that he was sexually assaulted by Terre'Blanche. "We submit that there was no mention of any sexual assault."
Both Mahlangu and the youth declined to testify before the State and the defence closed their case last week.
Terre'Blanche's brother, sister-in-law and his niece and her husband attended the proceedings.
