Semen Found on White Racist Leader's Body

Semen found on Terre'Blanche's 'private part'


Spokesperson for police National Commissioner General Bheki Cele said on Sunday that semen had been found on the body of Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging leader Eugene Terre'Blanche.

"His body was found half naked with semen on his private part. That is not new information, it has always been part of the evidence," said Nonkululeko Mbatha.

Cele told a Sunday newspaper that the "sex issue" had always been there because Terre'Blanche's body had been found with his pants down and "were wet with semen".

However, Cele said there was no condom found on the scene, [as reported in the media last week].

There were sex rumours in the right-wing leader's murder case, that the defence decided to abandon in the Ventersdorp Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.

Lawyer Puna Moroko, representing one of the two accused of Terre'Blanche's death -- Chris Mahlangu (28) -- told journalists outside the court that his client initially spoke of being sodomised by the AWB leader, but that further questioning had revealed this could not be true.

"He [Mahlangu] mentioned ‘sodomy' to me [but] the consultation was very short ... It didn't satisfy me, it just did not make sense to me, that's why I abandoned it," said Moroko.

"I am not satisfied that there was sodomy and my client accepted my advice."


The court on Wednesday extended the detention of the accused. Magistrate Magaola Foso adjourned the case to May 10 to allow more time for police investigations and a bail application.

"You are in custody until then," Foso told the elder of the two suspects in court.

Terre'Blanche was bludgeoned and hacked to death on April 3 at his farm outside Ventersdorp.

The killing has brought South Africa's long-standing racial tensions to the surface, two months before the country is due to host the Soccer World Cup.

Police in full riot gear guarded the entrance to the courthouse, following last week's clashes between white and black crowds at the suspects' first court appearance. - Sapa
