Johannesburg - Two teenagers accused of killing a farmer in Reitz, Free State, were denied bail by the Bethlehem Magistrate's Court on Wednesday, police said.

Sergeant Mmako Mophireng said the case against the two, aged 16 and 17, was postponed to August 24.

They allegedly murdered Thinus Uitenweerde and buried him in a shallow grave on his Reitz farm on August 1.

One of the two apparently worked on the farm a few days before the incident.

Uitenweerde's son called the police after a stranger answered a telephone call he made to his parent's home.

    Old enough to do the crime, then you old enough do the time.

    Another henious crime and not a word of condemnation from ANCYL which is as bad as condoning the attack. Again, a group of impressionable youths involved who probably interpreted Malema's horrific songs literally and subsequent appallibg conduct as a go ahead to kill. Governmnet and senior ANC leadership should immediately ban the song and apologise to whole country for not acting sooner.

    Reitz 4 racist. Reitz 2 crime. go figure. If the ANC had any backbone they'd be as outspoken now as they were before over a good natured video featuring willing participants.

    Why is the ANCYL and ANC womens league not prtesting at this court case? This is a racist attack, that requires the toyi toyi and a call for these murderers to rot in jail. Maybe racism is only white on black??
