The two men accused of killing 21-year-old Senekal farm manager, Brending Horne, return to the Senekal Magistrate’s Court today.

Their bail application was postponed on Friday.

Today, the defense is expected to cross-examine the investigating officer.

Sekwetje Mahlamba (32) and Sekola Matlaletsa (44) have denied guilt in the matter.

Both their appearances have so far been marked by drama.

On Friday, tensions flared between Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) and farmers protesting against farm murders.

No violence was reported, though.

This had been preceded by the burning of a police van outside the court on October 6, when Mahlamba and Matlaletsa first appeared at the court.

The farmers had allegedly wanted to take the law into their own hands and personally deal with the duo.

Two men have been arrested so far for that riot and are both out on bail.
