Second Person Arrested For Senekal Court Violence

A second person has been arrested in connection with a violent protest outside a Senekal court last week.

The police confirmed on Friday night that the 33-year-old has been charged with attempted murder, public violence, arson, and malicious damage to property.

A group of Senekal residents, including farmers, stormed the courthouse where two suspects were appearing in connection with a farm murder.

It follows the arrest of farmer Andre Pienaar who was also caught for his involvement in the rampage that occurred at the local court last week.

A police vehicle was set alight and the court building was damaged.
