From early today hundreds of people gathered outside the magistrates court in Senekal, Free State, where the two suspected murderers of young farm manager Brendin Horner are scheduled to appear.
Streams of vehicles and motorbikes made their way into the town centre, and the police reportedly closed the town’s main streets in preparation for the protesters. Two stock thieves were arrested in connection with the Paul Roux farm murder on Saturday, a day after Horner’s body was found, and will be charged with his brutal murder.
SENEKAL COURT UPDATE: Watch warning shots fired as crowd storms Senekal court, and angry crowd tries to overturn police vehicle carrying Brandin Horner murder suspects.
