Terreblanche accused of sex with his killers

Police are investigating claims that Eugene Terreblanche was killed after attempting to sexually assault two male workers on his farm.
A lawyer for one of the two suspects was quoted as saying the two accused acted in self-defence after the white supremacist plied them with alcohol and made sexual advances.
Puna Moroko, lawyer for 28-year-old Chris Mahlangu, told South Africa's Sunday Times: ''My instructions from my client are that there was some sodomy going on and it sparked the murder of Mr Terreblanche.''
Mr Moroko added that Mr Terreblanche had plied both workers with alcohol and tried to have sex ''with one or both'' of them.
''It is in the court record that Mr Terreblanche bought my client 18 Savannas [cider] and the other accused, who is still a minor, 13 Savannas before driving them to his farm. Mr Terreblanche bought himself a bottle of Smirnoff at the same liquor store.''
Police confirmed that a sexual link was among many claims being investigated. ''We are not going to focus on one thing,'' Musa Zondi, of the Hawks investigative unit, said. ''We will investigate all pertinent facts that have a bearing on the matter.''
Zola Majavu, the lawyer acting for the 15-year-old accused, would not comment on the sexual allegations, but said his client ''has undergone all the necessary tests that I need to prove his case''.
''I have consulted with my client and I am satisfied that something shocking happened on that day. I will disclose fully what my client told me happened during trial,'' Mr Majavu said.
Mr Terreblanche was hacked and battered to death on April 3 and found with his trousers around his knees.
Police had earlier said a pay dispute had led to the killing.
General Jan Mabula, head of the Hawks in North West Province, told City Press the suspects' clothes were to be examined as part of checks into whether there was a sexual link.
Mr Terreblanche's far-right Afrikaner Resistance Movement has rejected any suggestion of a sexual link to the murder of its leader, who was one of the most vocal proponents of keeping South Africa's races apart.
When the two farm workers appeared in court last Tuesday, there were tense scenes outside as AWB supporters and black groups were forced apart by police after insults and racially charged songs.

Sorry for this ahead of time, I know this is a serious matter, but your comment made me fondly remember the Coke/Prostitute/Midget scene in "In Bruges" during which the midget discusses the coming race wars and on which side each race would side...
You, sir, made Gatorade come out of my nose remembering that.

I would not be so quick to dismiss a claim. That's for sure.
Guys like this - of any group - often do exactly that. South Africa is a den of inequity of the lowest order. Men of this type do this and have done this throughout time, and I would not put it past one.
I don't make saints of the dead out of some superstition.
Would I believe that a raging power addict big mouth with dominance issues would be a rapist? To be honest, I'd put my money on him being one - the only question being is if these boys are his victims or others.
