VENTERSDORP - The final leg of the Eugene Terre’Blanche murder trial is set to resume in Ventersdorp, North West province on Monday. 

The judge is expected to hear argument in mitigation and aggravation of sentence for Chris Mahlangu and Patrick Ndlovu.

Terre'Blanche, a former leader of the right-wing AWB was bludgeoned to death on his farmhouse on the outskirts of Ventersdorp in April 2010.

Farm worker Mahlangu was convicted of his murder, while 18-year-old Ndlovu was found guilty of housebreaking.

A psychologist’s report and the probation officer's report are expected to be submitted.

This was supposed to have been done in June, but the reports were not finalised.

Ndlovu was found guilty of house breaking, but his legal team are hoping to convince the court that he should not serve any jail time.

He has spent the past two years in a youth centre.

When handing down his verdict earlier this year, Judge John Horn rejected Mahlangu's claim that he was been sodomised by Terre’Blanche.
