#Senekal LIVE Updates – EFF KZN chairperson Vusimuzi Khoza’s gun taken by police


We are live from Senekal in the Free State where two suspects will appear for the murder of 21-year-old farm manager Brendin Horner. The EFF has started gathering in town.

Road blocks and tight security encompassed Senekal, in the Free State, on Friday before the appearance of two men alleged to have killed farm manager Brendin Horner.

On the outskirts of the small farming town, police officers stopped and searched vehicles for weapons, ordering motorists out of cars as they did thorough checks.

Busses carrying EFF supporters clad in the party's red regalia were parked a short distance from the court.

While the EFF had maintained that Friday's demonstrations were to be peaceful, some of their members carried baseball bats, golf clubs and sticks and waved these in the air as they made their way up the street leading to the courthouse, singing songs in praise of their leader, Julius Malema.

The EFF has erected a large stage outside the courthouse where Malema was later meant to address supporters.

A few metres from there, a vendor selling EFF regalia took advantage of the sea of red by putting his items on sale.

Suspects Sekwetje Isaiah Mahlamba and Sekola Piet Matlaletsa are due to appear in the Senekal magistrate's court on Friday morning.

The 21-year-old Horner was found beaten, strangled and tied to a pole on a wire fence about 100m from his family home, in the neighbouring town of Paul Roux, on October 2.

His murder has highlighted tensions over the high rate of stock thefts in the area.

EFF members have started arriving in #Senekal, making their way to the demarcated area where they will be protesting, near the court.
