Terre'Blanche judge 'not impressed'

2011-05-10 12:01

Ventersdorp - The judge presiding over the Eugene Terre'Blanche murder trial was "not impressed" with how the case had been handled, he said on Tuesday as he postponed the matter to October.

“I must say I am not impressed with the manner in which this was handled. It resulted in time being unnecessarily wasted," Judge John Horn said in the High Court sitting in Ventersdorp.

“I came here to hear a trial, not to hear arguments regarding postponements. This whole situation was most unsatisfactory.”

The trial of Chris Mahlangu and a minor accused of killing the AWB leader was set down for October 10 2011.

Horn said Mahlangu, whose previous attorney Puna Moroko withdrew just days before trial, could not be blamed for this.

“If a postponement was not granted it would be prejudicial and unjust to accused one (Mahlangu) and he would not be afforded a fair trial.”

Mahlangu and a minor are accused of bludgeoning Terre'Blanche to death at his North West farmhouse in April last year, apparently in a wage dispute. The two worked for him at the time.

    HANG THEM, If you planned it and you kill a person, you should be killed.

    Just take them outside, behind the court house and put a couple bullets in them. That will make an impression on them.

    @unbeatabulls, your white trashy type comments are typically racist and do not deserve the attention it gets. Like persvrij is saying, please just get out of the country, and do us all a favour. It is a sad day when the more educated people in this country has the mentality you have, then there is no hope for us. I see you are from bulls country, no surprise there either.

    This case is already showing signs of the usual BS that surrounds these sort of unfortunate incidents, the racist white and black parties throwing a whole lot of useless insults at each other, the waste of thoughts and time spent on racist thinking must cost this country billions, Malema included in the bill, including u unbeatabulls

      Gadafi007 - 2011-05-10 13:22

      Leave Malema alone and face the facts on how all this started and how can it be resolved .Stop pointing Fingers all over the Continent "Viva Anc "

      This sounds very strange.

    @Maki. You racist uneducated,ignorant ass. Fortuanatly the rest of SA is also seeing the light, hence all the strikes about service delivery ect. See the light=ANC. wow you are living in a world of your own. Say hi to Julius for us

  • mufasa - 2011-05-10 13:32

    No one deserves to be killed, accept all ughm ughm murderers? which in turn makes us murderers... see hate begets hate. ET stood up for what he believed so did those two farm workers. lets let the judge deal the sentence and all of us try our best to live better lives, to respect each others differences. the real challenge i will set to all south africans: lets all, stop crime, all crime, lets all agree to disagree, lets all work toward the future Mandela and so many others (black and white) fought for.

      Not_Fooled - 2011-05-10 13:36

      Agreed-but easier said than done.

      mufasa - 2011-05-10 13:52

      True, but when has anything of worth been easy to accomplish?

  • Gadafi007 - 2011-05-10 13:36

    So does Malema....

      Now here is the first worthwhile comment! Like you already!!!

  • thetruth - 2011-05-10 13:56

    news24 surely knows how to stir the most comments u get the blacks and whites going at it...u get a few corrupt ANC politicians and the DA supporters lambast the entire party and its ppl of being corrupt....JUJU is a fool and u get the entire white participants criticising blacks and their is this country going to thrive if young blacks , whites ,coloureds and indians can't atleast sit down and talk maturely,ignoring each others faults...c'mon guys,we're way beyond that stage...and looking at uneducated ppl like Unbeatabulls and Roelofs comments , u see the illiteracy in SA...let them know thats its their ppl(afrikaners),who are suffering and are in the most danger in SA,post '94 ...they should be the ones looking for reconciliation...

      Reasonable - 2011-05-10 14:16

      So right! What we should do is start a new youth party so young people can start to reason and think for themselves and work together for a united SA. JUJU is an idiot, you are right, but so is Terreblanche, so are the white racists and so are the black racists. I agree with you, News24 fuels these "debates" - let's start a new youth party where EVERYBODY is welcome - then maybe people would not only have to listen to the Youth League's comments in the future! Shame on the rest of (my) Afrikaner nation, guys like Roelof and unbeatabulls embarrass me and my people. I can assure you not everybody feels that way. Lets start a new youth league and get people excited about the future!

      Johan - 2011-05-10 19:55

      @thetruth The Afrikaners is suffering yes but why must they be the ones looking for reconciliation? The Afrikaner had just about enough of reconciliation. Do not keep pushing them. They very seldom will stand together but keep on pushing them and you will eventually push them together and then they will respond. My people will stand up again

      Johan - 2011-05-10 20:03

      @Reasonable Yes sometimes it is a shame to read what some of the people say but you beat a dog enough and he will turn around and bite you. That is what I see is happening here. White South Africans are getting tired of being the bad one the racists and the thieves. They will bite back. It will start with a few snarls (racist comments) but it is going to get worse

  • Dave - 2011-05-10 14:08

    True ET changed, then he started socialising with his workers, you cannot mix oil and water

  • Heks - 2011-05-10 14:28

    Yes! Hang them these Stards!

  • Gadafi007 - 2011-05-10 14:56

    @cerveza ,You must pray in The ANC's Language and you will be answered and all your problems will be sorted with flying colours ,as for your stomach ,jy moet pap eet boetie.Traffic is everyone's nightmare,look back and check who invented this roads Not ANC but ...."fill in the missing words boetie "

      byron.moragemos - 2011-05-10 15:28

      you are a muppet. another holy anc clown that believes the anc is the holy saviour. catch a wake up. support anc and you support crime and corruption. take those blinders off your eyes gadafi007

      cerveza - 2011-05-10 15:48

      @Gadafi - what is the ANC's language, they always speak english, the language of agents, so I am confused, are they agents? I eat pap, but my mieliemeel says ACE not ANC, it tastes much better than false promises, and keeps me filled much longer I am sorry, I can't fill in the missing words, 1st Apartheid told me what to do and how to think, now the ANC does the same, so I never got the chance to develop my own thought process and can therefor can not fill in blanks

  • Roelof - 2011-05-10 14:59

    If you VOTE ANC the Tokoloshe will follow you and never leave you BOO-BOO

      Jy geniet dit duidelik om iemand na te maak al is jy eintlik 'n spierwit afrikanertjie wat net aandag soek....

  • Realistic - 2011-05-10 17:06

    @Gadafi007. What an ignorant fool you are. How much is Malema/ANC paying you to comment on these forums? @Reasonable. That it's, tell the biggest contributors of tax to get out the country. What then? Easy, there simply won't be any more money for the ANC to steal. Clearly our education system has failed. -shakes head-

  • annie.kalahari - 2011-05-10 18:00

    still the old 'wage dispute' ANC-lie...
