Blood found inside ET’s car

2011-10-19 12:59

Blood was found inside right-wing leader Eugene Terre’Blanche’s bakkie on the night of his murder, the High Court sitting in Ventersdorp heard today.

Warrant Officer Bobby Sephiphi from the Potchefstroom Criminal Record Centre said he took a sample of blood found on the back rest of the driver’s seat as evidence.

He also took blood samples and fingerprints from the steering wheel, and the inside of the farmhouse where Terre’Blanche’s mutilated body was found in April last year.

The officer made observations at the scene and bagged possible evidence.

He further took blood samples from both the accused’s hands and nails at the local police station.

Farmworkers Chris Mahlangu and a minor are accused of beating and hacking Terre’Blanche to death. Both have pleaded not guilty to murder, housebreaking and robbery with aggravating circumstances.

Mahlangu claims he acted in self-defence. The 16-year-old has denied involvement in the crime.
