Khaki-clad AWB supporters gather outside high court

2010-10-06 08:52

About 30 Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging (AWB) supporters dressed in their hallmark khaki uniforms gathered outside the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria this morning where an appeal against granting bail to the man accused of killing white supremacist Eugene Terre’Blanche is expected to be heard.

Terre’Blanche was the leader of the AWB movement.

Chris Mahlangu was granted bail in July, but the state is appealing the decision that was handed down in the Ventersdorp Magistrate’s Court.

The National Prosecuting Authority has argued that Mahlangu is a flight risk, especially since he has been unable to prove his citizenship.

Mahlangu and a 15-year-old were arrested in April after Terre’Blanche was found battered and hacked to death on his farm.

A large contingent of media were also present outside the court.
