Argument in a trial within the trial of two people accused of killing rightwing leader Eugene Terre’Blanche will be heard on Tuesday.

The High Court sitting in Ventersdorp would then decide on the validity of information gathered from the two murder accused shortly after the crime.

The defence has contended this information is not admissible as evidence.

Farmworker Chris Mahlangu and a minor, who may not be named, are charged with beating Terre’Blanche to death in his farmhouse outside Ventersdorp in North West in April 2010.

Both have pleaded not guilty to murder, housebreaking, and robbery with aggravating circumstances. Mahlangu claims he acted in self defence. The teenager has denied involvement in the crime.

The last witness, police photographer Zandisile Mqamba, was called to the stand on Monday. – SAPA
