A 33-year-old man has been arrested in connection with last week’s chaos at the Senekal Magistrate’s Court.

He is a second suspect in the violence that erupted at the court when the two men accused of killing 21-year-old farm manager, Brendin Horner, first appeared in court.

Police Ministry spokesperson, Lirandzu Themba, announced the news last night in a tweet.

The arrest happened on the same day Sekwetje Mahlamba (32) and Sekola Matlaletsa (44) made their second appearance in court to apply for bail.

The matter has been postponed to Tuesday, where the investigating officer is expected to be cross-examined.

State Security Minister Ayanda Dlodlo, the Police Minister Bheki Cele and EFF leader Julius Malema attended the court proceedings, which were marked by tensions between rival protesting groups.

DA Federal Council Chairperson Helen Zille was also in Senekal in support of farmers, who are frustrated by farm murders.
