Prominent lawyer Zola Majavu will represent the 15-year-old accused of murdering AWB leader Eugene Terre’Blanche.
Majavu, also a Premier Soccer League prosecutor, told City Press that he was taking up the challenge fully aware that this was a sensitive case. “We can’t have a situation where justice is derailed by outside emotion,” he said. It is not clear who will represent the other accused, 28-year-old Chris Mahlangu.
Majavu was asked over the weekend to represent both accused, but found that Mahlangu had already taken up a Legal Aid lawyer. He refused to say who had asked him to assist the two alleged killers. “I can confirm that it is not the ANC Youth League or the ANC.”
Mahlangu and the 15-year-old face charges of murder, housebreaking, attempted robbery and crimen injuria. The crimen injuria charge relates to allegations that the two accused pulled Terre’Blanche’s pants to his knees during the attack, according to prosecutor George Baloyi.
But Majavu laughed off the attempted robbery charge, saying it was flabbergasting. “Initially, the accused faced three charges. But now it’s four. The fourth charge was added this morning,” Majavu said. Baloyi said that the attempted robbery charge related to Terre’Blanche’s cellphone, while Majavu claimed that the charge was related to an attempt to steal Terre’Blanche’s car.
AWB leader Eugene Terre’Blanche could have been killed during an alcohol-fuelled homosexual sex encounter on his farm, investigators have revealed. General Jan Mabula, head of the Hawks in North West, has confirmed the possibility that Terre’Blanche’s murder could be investigated as a sex crime.
“Yes, we are looking into that. We are looking into everything that has been alleged. “We have sent the suspects’ clothes for forensic investigations,” said Mabula.
Police have already established that Terre’Blanche and the two farm workers, Chris Mahlangu (27) and his alleged 15-year-old accomplice, had bought copious amounts of liquor before heading out to his farm on the morning of his murder.
A source close to the investigation said that details were disclosed during a closed meeting between National Prosecuting Authority boss Menzi Simelane and his senior officials in Pretoria on Wednesday.
The source said the prosecutors were briefed on details of the investigation, such as the discovery of a condom on Terre’Blanche’s body and other sexual details.
Visagie said Terre’Blanche had not taken his heart medicine on the day of the murder.

Slain rightwing leader Eugene Terre'Blanche throttled and assaulted his murder accused on several occasions, a lawyer said outside the Ventersdorp Magistrate's Court on Wednesday. Puna Moroko, lawyer for Chris Mahlangu (28), told reporters his client first claimed he had been sodomised by Terre'Blanche but further questioning had revealed this could not be true. "He [Mahlangu] mentioned 'sodomy' to me [but] the consultation was very short... It didn't satisfy me, it just did not make sense to me, that's why I abandoned it," said Moroko. "I am not satisfied that there was sodomy and my client accepted my advice." He said that Mahlangu, who had been working for Terre'Blanche since last November, was throttled by the Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging leader about two months ago. "He [Mahlangu] said he [Terre'Blanche] throttled him... [Terre'Blanche] said I'd kill you because the cattle is missing," said Moroko. "The throttling was not an isolated incident," he added, declining to elaborate or say if an assault occurred on the day of the murder, which was last Saturday.
