Accused 'wanted to castrate Terre'Blanche'

2012-04-10 12:27

Ventersdorp - One of the two people accused of killing right wing leader Eugene Terre'Blanche planned to castrate him after the murder, the High Court sitting in Ventersdorp heard on Tuesday.

"[Chris] Mahlangu said he pulled Terre'Blanche’s pants down and exposed his genitals. His intention was to dismember Terre'Blanche. But he decided against it," investigating officer Lieutenant Colonel Tsietsi Mano testified.

Mano testified that Mahlangu said he and his co-accused, a minor, decided to kill Terre'Blanche in April 2010.

He was testifying on a statement given by Mahlangu on the night of the murder. Mahlangu and the teenager were charged with beating Terre'Blanche to death in his farmhouse outside Ventersdorp in the North West 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.

Mano said Mahlangu stated that he went into a store room at the farm, where he found an iron rod, which he took and with the teenager entered Terre'Blanche's house through a window.

The pair allegedly found Terre'Blanche lying on his back on the bed.

"Mahlangu then hit Mr Terre'Blanche on the forehead with an iron rod. Two other blows followed on the face. There was a lot of blood... caused by the injuries. He repeatedly hit Terre'Blanche on the chest.

"His colleague took the rod from him. He hit Terre'Blanche in the face... some blows on the chest as well," Mano said.

    Pre miditated murder!!!

  • paulmandlankosi - 2012-04-10 12:46

    That is really gruesome

  • siyadyosiba - 2012-04-10 12:46

    Finalize the case please. Its been dragging for too long. We need closure to this case for the sake of his family and friends.

      John - 2012-04-10 13:39

      spot on it does not matter who he was these guys are just as bad put them away

  • Themba - 2012-04-10 12:56

    Let us hope and pray that the court will have less hursh to these boys, especially looking at the damages in this country coused by ET.

  • Frans - 2012-04-10 12:58

    Phumi, you can't be serious. Are you gonna ask the court for leniency if your father/mother is murdered by a first offender? Think before you make comments like this.

  • Lulama - 2012-04-10 12:59

    I am just thinking about the motive that led to this brutality. It must be a very hectic one. What can compel one to have a need to castrate a fellow human being, irrespective of ET being a known rascist. Let me throw a few motives, anger because of what? Him being a racist.... nah, payment? What has cutting a man's gemitals have to do with it. Revenge? possible but for what? If it was for the rascist sexually abusing the peps it is justified. Are pepetrators of sound mind? possible but to what extent? What was the relationship between the peps and the rascist? Employees? The other one was a minor, it is unlawfuul to employ a minor. Hatred? that makes the perps to be cruel annd highly vindictive and stupid. Can they be considered heroes? Noooo....they are criminals if found guilty. ET will always be a leader of rascists.

    Eugene Terre'Blanche was no saint at all, some may say that he got what he deserved but point is Mahlangu and this teenager committed a crime, from what I just read, they entered his room through a window, if anything he is the one who needed defending at that particular moment because they attacked him. If at any point he had mistreated them or abused them in any way, they had many options, one being to QUIT, or approach the CCMA to report ill-treatment in the work place. Yes Terre'Blanche was a horrible, racist man but I feel they should have let the law deal with him or leave it all in the hands of God.

  • Ndumiso Mayeza - 2012-04-10 13:03

    You'll are just as disgusting. I doo agree that Terre'Blanche' was not a perfect individual, but he did not deserve such a gruesome death. Where is our humanity? How is the self-defence claim justified when he was found lying on his bed. South Africa has gone to the dogs. I hereby sentence each accuse a lifetime imprisonment!!!

      eleanore.hill - 2012-04-10 14:36

      Well said Ndumiso. Everyone condoning their acts despite his history has only managed to sink lower than they think Eugene was. Anyone that condones this type of act has a hell of a lot to think about, starting by themselves.

  • Herman - 2012-04-10 13:06

    And this is the type of people we have tried to uplift in SA, with this pure hatred, no wonder they can't progress anywhere in SA. Destroyers of everything.

      Irene - 2012-04-10 14:12

      Quite correct, and then they wonder why we don't respect them!

      paulmandlankosi - 2012-04-10 18:10

      @Irene, who are they?

      TaniaSandraSteyn - 2012-04-10 20:44

      Agreed, Paul. Why should everyone be tarred with the same brush?

  • George - 2012-04-10 13:07

    Karma is a beach

  • Shirley - 2012-04-10 13:11

    This was cold blooded murder-anyway you cut it! Lock the evil doers up and be done with it!

  • Anelisa Gebenga - 2012-04-10 13:13

    wt goes comes around in hundreds

  • Marriette - 2012-04-10 13:17

    its a pity that when the same thing is done to u and ur family it becames a horrible dead..... this is a lesson that do unto others as you wld like them to do unto you!!!

  • i.see.a.cupcake - 2012-04-10 13:26

    so let me get this straight, instead of castrating Terre'Blanche they decided to kill him. I'm going to say this again. instead of castrating Terre'Blanche they decided to kill him. isn't that called murder?

      i.see.a.cupcake - 2012-04-10 13:51

      so the 4 trolls that gave my post a thumbs down think deciding to kill someone is not premeditated murder its self defense.

  • Frans - 2012-04-10 13:39

    I already see a lot of thumbs down on this. Do people really believe ET had a sexual affair with one of these criminals. I mean people look at the face in the picture. He had many followers (ladies) who would have been more than willing to satisfy his needs. As I said:\lot of thumbs down\.

      cosmos.ndebele - 2012-04-10 13:50

      I see lots of thumbs down here too, apparently ramour has it, he was living double life (bi-sexual) . It would help not speak on his behalf, we dont know how he spent his spare time.

      Irene - 2012-04-10 14:13

      Frans ~ It goes to show how dof they are! Think as planks. After all which part of the population treats rape as the national sport?

      cosmos.ndebele - 2012-04-10 14:44

      @Irene u remind me the Sunday rapist about those words!!!

      Sabelo - 2012-04-10 15:02

      This is a stupid comment actually. Having ladies thrown towards you doesn't mean you wouldn't wanna dip other dudes...

      Anne-Marie - 2012-04-10 18:27

      Cosmos, get a life. Even if he was leading a "double life". If he was a racist as everyone keeps saying, why would he want to lead his double life with a black man?? Your argument is completely flawed you fool. Oh and well done for managing to use the "Sunday rapist" in your argument. The only white rapist you could think of I might add. I wonder if we were to start listing names......

  • alwyn.snyman1 - 2012-04-10 13:55

    as i raed all the comments, i can cleary see racists is hear to stay, keep it up, u doing south africa proud, asshols.

      Thulari Mfundo Sipho - 2012-04-10 14:19

      every1 who done wrong the shall take actions against him /her

  • Rob - 2012-04-10 14:19

    These two killed terreblanche for the following reasons. 1. He was a leader of the hated AWB. 2. They knew they would have the support of the majority of the " people " of this country. 3. They would be famous, revered & loved by the majority. 4. They felt that nothing would happen to them, if they stuck to a story whereby Terreblanche assulted OR insulted them. Other then that, no constructive reason has been forthcoming and we know it certainly was not self defence.

  • Theo - 2012-04-10 14:58

    All you people that wanted Terreblance dead and say he deserved it, please go read the Latest News post "Gran killed - act of kindness" - Just more annimals roaming our country killing and looting. Terreblanche case was no different, he just happened to be the leader of the AWB. Sick bastards - life means NOTHING to them

  • Sazi - 2012-04-10 15:11

    Oh boy News24 black/white racists comments at each other's throats AGAIN. This was a crime gone terribly wrong. I don't see why the race issue should be like a toy to cry over by all the babies here. The killers deserve whatever comes towards them though, hope they get life in prison.

      Anne-Marie - 2012-04-10 18:34

      How do you make out that it was a crime gone wrong. These two people set out to murder and they did. They set out to become heroes and sadly to some idiots they did.
