Farmworker says pair stabbed ET

Farmworker Chris Mahlangu and his teenage co-accused admitted to stabbing right-wing leader Eugene Terre’Blanche, another farmworker testified today.

“On April 3, 2010, I was at my quarters and they came and uttered words that they stabbed Terre’Blanche,” Richard Silane told the High Court sitting in Ventersdorp. They wanted a phone... and the younger one then phoned the police.”

Silane, who worked on a neighbouring farm, pointed out the minor in court as the person who made the phone call.

“When they finished, they said they were leaving and that police would find them along the way,” he testified.

“They then proceeded on a road to Terre’Blanche’s place ... I never saw them again.”

The pair are accused of killing Terre’Blanche at his North West farmhouse in April last year over a wage dispute.

Both have pleaded not guilty to murder, housebreaking and attempted robbery with aggravating circumstances.
