‘I don’t trust white people anymore’ #Coligny


The parents of a Coligny boy who was killed allegedly by two farm workers say they continue to live in fear in the North West town.

Sixteen-year-old Matlhomola Moshoeu died last month. The two men charged with his murder claim that they caught Moshoeu stealing sunflowers at the farm they work on but that he jumped off the back of their bakkie and died while they were taking him to the police station.

Violent protests broke out in the town after the two accused were granted bail, with a number of houses torched and businesses looted.

The Economic Freedom Fighters will on Friday be leading a march to the local police station.

Moshoeu’s father Saki Dingake says he questions why his son was taken away from them.

He says he and the boy’s mother now live in fear and ensure they don’t roam around at night.

“I don’t trust white people anymore. Even living in my house is difficult. I make sure that when I leave, I make sure I am back by 3pm. I am afraid of white people.”

  1. I feel sorry for the Moshoeu family but they should be scared of people not only white people.
    Violence and crime come in all colours, white, indian, asian, black. Where there are people, there will be violence and crime. Especially in Southern Africa.

    Why is it that we always want to blame others for our own way of being. Is it because we consider ourselves as inferior to people that differ from us or what.

    Why be scared of white people because you think a person was murdered but not afraid of indian, asian or black people. There are murderers in these groups as well.

    We need to uplift our people to see past race and stop expecting others to live our lives and government to provide. Go out and be the person you are and be good to people, not black people or white people, just people. Utilise what the country offer and excel in life. If you take from those who have, soon nobody will have anything and we all die of hunger. Work towards your own success and taste the sweetness of life
