Coligny murder accused duo back in court
Pieter Doorewaard and Philip Schutte allegedly caught 16-year-old Matlhomola Moshoeu stealing sunflowers from a farm in April.
JOHANNESBURG – Two men accused of killing a 16-year-old boy in Coligny in the North West are due back in court this morning.
The case was postponed to Monday to allow the Director of Public Prosecutions time to decide on whether to prosecute.
Pieter Doorewaard and Philip Schutte allegedly caught Matlhomola Moshoeu stealing sunflowers from a farm in April.
They claim they were driving him to the local police station when he jumped off their bakkie, broke his neck and died.
But an eyewitness alleges that he was pushed off.
Doorewaard and Schutte were granted bail of R5,000 each, a move that resulted in violent protests.
