AWB members gather outside court

2012-01-30 09:45

Ventersdorp - A small group of Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging supporters were gathered outside the High Court in Ventersdorp on Monday morning.

The group, dressed in camouflage uniforms, were awaiting the resumption of the trial of two farm workers for the murder of rightwing leader Eugene Terre'Blanche.

Cars were draped in AWB regalia and flags and the group played Afrikaans music including the controversial song De La Ray.

The case was postponed in October last year.

Chris Mahlangu and a minor are accused of beating and hacking the former AWB leader to death in his North West farmhouse 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.

    This lot are pathetic ! People who think like you created the problem in SA in the first place !

      Jan - 2012-01-30 10:29

      No, a problem was created by Afrikanners when they oppressed black people.

      Hotkop - 2012-01-30 10:30

      Don't you like De La Rey? Commenting from the safety in the UK. Pissy.

      PhilipV - 2012-01-30 10:40

      @Jan, you are wrong, the English did, we were stupid enough to go on with it.

      David - 2012-01-30 10:53

      richard.hipkin - 2012-01-30 10:56

      Jan is a troll.. look at his facebook page will tell you that in less then 2 seconds..

      Hotkop - 2012-01-30 10:59

      Troll is an understatement.

  • Sunett - 2012-01-30 10:34

    These idiots make Afrikaans speaking people (like myself) look like complete fools. And playing of De La Rey has NO RELEVANCE here!! For the record, NO ONE I KNOW is anything at all like these dumb@sses. They are the minority. Still - a man was brutally murdered and I hope justice prevails.

  • TDMaffodi - 2012-01-30 10:37

    I mean British are always British. So why Dutch Afrikaaners? They Dutch from Netherlands afterall. I think is time Netherlands government take its people back.

      Hotkop - 2012-01-30 10:41

      Cause we originate from many different countries. i think it's time that central Africa takes YOU back.

      miyo27 - 2012-01-30 10:47

      how about the netherlands government takes its people back AND everything its people ever invented, created and built? eish!!

      Chris - 2012-01-30 11:22

      Perhaps so,and so they should kick all the BLACKS out to!!!!!

      lindz.kok - 2012-01-30 11:49

      Maverick82 - 2012-01-30 11:55

      Oh yes please I agree with you, I would love to get out of South Africa.

  • Shirley - 2012-01-30 10:40

    Bottom line here is that he was murdered! He should receive the same justice as ANYONE else. The story of self defence doesnt cut it when you look at the brutality of the murder and this stinks of a racial killing.

      Jan - 2012-01-30 11:11

      @Shirley What about the poor people eugene killed, remember bophuthatswana... He killed alot and it was about time...

      JasperSA1 - 2012-01-30 11:27

      Why is everyone still living in the past... every time we do this we just take a couple steps back... To fix our problems as a nation we need to change and change today based on what we want our future to be... If you want to change with revenge or pay back for the people before our generation - you sadly stepping backwards instead of forwards! Jan man you should rather keep your comments to youself - like they said before... These 2 people killed a man in cold blood they should pay like any other murderers! Point closed as for the songs playing outside... It is just a song - nothing more than a song - not about killing a particular group of people!!! Wake up people!

      David - 2012-01-30 11:39

      @Jan your comment does not make sense. "He killed a lot and it was about time..." You are a complete idiot who has nothing better to do with his time and you should rather find yourself a proper job cause i hear the last one was a bit of a S%it one, what was it again (GUTTER TRASH)

      Shirley - 2012-01-30 11:45

      I could ask the same question: What about people murdered in Magoos bar in Durban? He [Terblanche] was jailed for his crimes,I do NOT support his beliefs but still dont believe it gives people the right to murder willy nilly!!!

      Ubhejane - 2012-01-30 12:17

      Shirley, Jan is right,what about the people that Eugene your hero murdered in Bophuthatswana and your comment abt Magoos bar in DBN is completely irrelevant and exposes your ignorance and rather shallow way of think.Must we then ask about all those thousands of people who died since the early 1900s all the way to apartheid as well indirectly and directly? I can see Hector Peterson's lifeless body in my mind,what about Steve Biko in that lonely interrogation room in John Vorster Square? Do you really wana play that game? I did not think so.That said a crime si a crime irrespective of who has been murdered.

  • JayJohnsonS - 2012-01-30 10:45

    i still think this two were setup to kill ET. if you disagree (despite being political,skin colour or racial)what would be their motive, remember ET paid their bills. They where paid a lot of money this folks.

      paulmandlankosi - 2012-01-30 11:17

      Why not wait for the law to take its own course?

      JayJohnsonS - 2012-01-30 11:55

      Obviously it will Nkosi...this is just a comment, on news24, clearly stating what i think. the LAW is something else...

      Hotkop - 2012-01-30 11:55

      What law?

      MastersVoice - 2012-01-30 12:04

      paul - I think after the Shaik fiasco and now, seemingly, a repeat with Selebi, many of us are starting to believe South Africa is becoming a Banana republic, where the law is a political football.

  • Dieter - 2012-01-30 10:59

    I hope they get off free! they will be sorted out in the "right way"! prison will be 2 kind for these animals!

  • mario.dippenaar - 2012-01-30 11:01

    I do not support the AWB, however, I feel that they have ever right to stand outside the court and play whatever songs they want to.

  • elizabeth.meakings - 2012-01-30 11:04

    If the British did not bring in the pass laws and the laws of keeping the Blacks out of town at night in Natal in somewhere in 18.00's Aparteid would never have been borne. As for people that were born in a country and have lived there for over 400 years do not tell them to go back where they come from. South Africa is their country of birth and they have just as much right there as anyone else. I think that racism is not just amongst the whites and the Afrikaners - no sure there are Blacks that are even more racists than whites can ever whish to be. So if both sides stop making silly remarks and putting the racist card to everything and start respecting one another as fellow human beings may be the world would be a better place. But unfortunately racism is not a South African issue it is practiced and used as an excuse worlwide. If you do not do a job well or you messed up stop playing the race card and take responsibility for your actions. People are entitled to an opinion no matter what race they are so grow up and just accept this fact. People's skin colour has nothing to do with how they behave it is simply how they choose to be and what they choose to be because they refuse to take any responsibility. The man has been murdered and justice should prevail. What would have happened if whites had killed him? Criminals are criminals no matter what the skin colour. So stop being irresponsible and nasty whoever or whatever your race or colour. Proud South AFRICAN!

      Dawood - 2012-01-30 11:34

      @ elizabeth.meakings S Africa and the world need more ppl like yourself.I for years hated many whites(still do some of the racist ones),but hope ppl like you become leaders in corrupt and racist countries like ours.

      Hotkop - 2012-01-30 11:53

      Dawood. If you "hate" a racist, there is no difference between you and a racist. Hate is hate bra

  • paulmandlankosi - 2012-01-30 11:25

    Let the law to take its own course.

      Hotkop - 2012-01-30 11:53

      What law?

      Shirley - 2012-01-30 12:10

      There is no "LAW" in South Africa!

      paulmandlankosi - 2012-01-30 12:51

      @Shirley, it is amazing that there is no law in South Africa, yet you are still here. I would have long left for Europe or New Zealand if I were you.

      Newsreader - 2012-01-30 13:09

      Oh and what law is that?...The same law that applies to fraud accused JZ?, rape accused JZ? Farm murdering Malema? and all the other idiots either in hospital or on the golf course!! SA law only applies to the honest tax payer.

  • Shirley - 2012-01-30 12:45

    Ubuhjane: Thats the PROBLEM! To blacks a white death is ok-bombs and murder committed are ok-it was for the struggle! To black people like you this is a game,one with biased rules and a thousand excuses! Whichever way you want to spin it,cut it,play it,MURDER is MURDER! So get over yourself! P.S IGNORANCE=living in the past with a thousand pathetic excuses NOT to build a BETTER furure!!
