Tensions high as two appear at the Groblersdal Magistrate’s court

Tensions ran high outside the Groblersdal Magistrate’s Court in Limpopo yesterday after two suspects appeared on charges of assault, believed to be racially motivated.

A father and stepson were arrested for allegedly assaulting a black security guard and setting a dog on him for reportedly being drunk on duty.

A group of Groblersdal residents showed up to the court carrying apartheid flags and blockaded roads in solidarity with the two suspects. Police fired stun grades to disperse the supporters, who were demanding the suspects release from custody.
