Cop grilled in ET murder case

Following several blows to the prosecution’s case in the Eugene Terre’Blanche murder trial...

Local

Following several blows to the prosecution’s case in the Eugene Terre’Blanche murder trial this week, a police officer on Friday testified that accused number one, Chris Mahlangu implicated himself in the crime.

Mahlangu and a teenager are accused of killing the former leader of the rightwing Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging (AWB), on his farm near Ventersdorp in April 2010.

Earlier this week, the judge ruled that strong evidence against the boy was inadmissible.

Defence lawyer spent most of Friday grilling police captain Mojalefa Nkosi.

They wanted to show he did not follow procedure when securing a statement from Mahlangu at the crime scene.

Nkosi acted as interpreter, the so-called pointing out officer, and the commissioner of oaths.

Mahlangu’s lawyer Kgomotso Tlouane indicated he would argue that Mahlangu’s statement should be disregarded.

Earlier this week, the teenager’s defence managed to convince the judge that similar evidence against the boy should not be admitted.
