Eugene Terre’Blanche ‘s murder-accused should never have gotten bail” – National Prosecuting Authority

TerreBlancheMurderSceneWindowDeathRoomEvidenceIgnoredBySAPS Picture: Among the great many missed forensic clues by the SAPS team investigating the EugeneTerre’Blanche murder scene were indications of detailed advance planning before he was so gruesomely slashed to death with pangas: for instance the ‘damaged’ window latch allowed easy access to the Terre’Blanche bedroom; a red book cover was left behind with the words “Mountain Man Kill”,  a shoeprint on the sill was overlooked by SAPS forensic examinators … and many other clues. And months into the investigation, Ventersdorp SAPS Capt Tsietsi Mano, who had also spread false information to the news media, was arrested for torturing witnesses in previous investigations… http://censorbugbear-reports.blogspot.com/2010/04/terreblanche-murder-scene-independent.html

--------------------------------------------------------

Pretoria – Oct 6 2010 The National Prosecuting Authority ‘s advocate George Baloyi told the Pretoria High Court that Eugene Terre’blanche’s co-accused murder suspect Chris Mahlangu ‘should never have been granted bail. There were no extinuating circumstances for the Ventersdorp magistrate’s court to justify him getting bail even if he had reported the murder to the police himself….’ 

Mahlangu and ‘a minor male’ are on trial for the gruesome murder: Terre’Blanche was found dismembered and mutilated. No motives are certain: nothing was robbed -  however the murder of the Boer-Republican leader is widely seen as a political assassination under very murky circumstances: independent forensic experts for instance, have uncovered evidence that the Ventersdorp SAPS had botched the forensic-field examination from the very first day - and that they had also spread false information to the news media about the circumstances in which Terre’Blanche had been found. Importantly, investigating officer  Capt Tsietsi Mano who testified in favour of Mahlangu’s bail application, was later arrested for torturing witnesses. The impoverished and physically-ailing Terre’Blanche, who was recovering from heart-bypass surgery, was found hacked to death with pangas in his delapidated rental farm-house in April last year. The Ventersdorp magistrate’s court had granted R5,000 bail to Mahlangu on 14 July and the State applied to rescind his bail. The trial starts on 22 November. Judge Julius Matojane is expected to decide the issue on Thursday. Terre’Blanche’s murder is widely viewed as a political assassination. http://www.nuus24.com/Suid-Afrika/Nuus/ET-moordverdagte-moes-nooit-borgtog-kry-20101006

Nothing was robbed during July 29 2009  murder-attack against the O’Dell family in Noordheuwel, Krugersdorp

Oct 6 2010 – Alicia O’Dell, the teen daughter of murdered Krugersdorp occupational-therapist Marinda O’Dell --  whose throat was cut on July 29 2009 by armed black men who stole nothing --  gave courageous testimony in the trial of co-accused Mphaphantsi Stanely Mabulana, 29 yesterday. She testified in detail how she had pleaded with one knifeman to ‘please not to hurt her”.  Her father Henry had been in Durban for business when the family-home was attacked.

Beeld journalist Amanda Roestoff reported that the gutsy matric-pupil of the Afrikaans High School Noordheuwel, testified at the murder-trial of Mphaphantsi Stanley Mabulana, 29 (co-accused of Phetoke Cedrick Lebea, 30, who confessed and was found guilty of ‘helping to murder Mrs O’Dell’ )

Mabulana denies all the charges – even though he was arrested shortly afterwards hiding in the ceiling of the murder-house. However Lebea is expected to testify as an important State-witness against Mabulana: after Lebea’s arrest in Munsieville, he had readily confessed that he had ‘helped to murder” Mrs O’Dell – although providing no motive: it’s still a mystery why nothing was stolen.

Alicia testified on closed-circuit camera because she still suffers from post-traumatic shock syndrome and also has to be protected as an important state-witness.  Her mother , who had arrived home shortly after Alicia was knocked unconscious, was found murdered – her throat cut from ear to ear.

“I felt his cold hands around my neck, he had longish nails…’

Alicia told the court that she was attacked inside her Krugersdorp home after her return from school on July 29. She was choked and beaten with a heavy spanner and passed out. “I pleaded with him not to hurt me as I saw him walking towards me with a knife in his hand. I then struggled to keep him out by pushing against the door while he was pushing it from the other side. He got inside and immediately started choking me, holding my neck with his hands. I felt his cold hands. He had longish fingernails. I started feeling faint. I saw the knife on the floor and tried to pick it up but he kicked it away. I lost conscienceness,’ she testified.

She testified that she had identified three black men as the attackers when she was taken to the Kagiso-police station. “I recognised the three because they looked so similar to one another, each with bears and very dark-skinned.’ She made a later court appearance during which she had however positively identified Mabulana as one of the attackers. The trial continues. http://www.beeld.com/Suid-Afrika/Nuus/Skoolmeisie-pleit-by-mans-wat-haar-oorval-ma-vermoor-20101006

Previous report: 20090729 Marinda O’Dell, 48, killed with throat cut, daughter Alicia, 17, bludgeoned, Noordheuwel Krugersdorp

  • Aug 1 2009 -  One of her clients was also present in the house of occupational therapist Mrs Marinda O’Dell, 48, whose throat was cut in her Krugersdorp home on July 29 2009. Mrs Elsa Mangolias and her son Gerald Hawkins, 9, did not however witness the gruesome murder, but were in the consulting room nearby when Mrs O’Dell’s throat was murdered. She was ambushed by two or three men who had also just assaulted and injured Mrs O’Dell’s 17-year-old daughter Alicia. The nine-year-old boy also needed trauma treatment,  although he ‘didn’t witness the murder’, said a relative. One of the knifemen, Phetole Cedrick Lebea (28) of Munisieville, submitted a confession that he’d helped murder Mrs O’Dell when he appeared with co-accused Mphaphantshi Stanley Mabulana (27) in the Krugersdorp magistrate’s court. Their case will be heard again on Friday August 6 2009.  Mabulana was arrested by police hiding in the ceiling of the O’Dell murder house, and Lebea was arrested within two hours at his home. The murder attack seems to be motiveless: nothing was stolen. The attack against these two Afrikaans women occurred at around 2pm in Keersomberg Street, Noordheuwel, said police inspector Odette van Staden. Alicia was  attacked shortly after she ‘d arrived at 2pm at her the family home – while her mother was dropping off some disabled children from the nearby Lantern School at their homes. The daughter had still stopped outside her home’s front-door to chat to Mrs Mangolias and her nine-year-old son Gerald who were waiting there for a scheduled occupational therapy session, before going inside – where she was attacked in her bedroom.  Her mother showed up at the house very shortly thereafter, brought her clients to her consulting room,  calling out to her daughter Alicia in the meantime. However when her daughter did not respond to her call, she contacted a girlfriend on her cellphone asking her if she knew Alicia’s whereabouts -- and was still talking to her friend when she was repeatedly stabbed in her body and her throat was slashed, police said. Police arrived within just minutes, writes Beeld.The family patriarch, Henry O’Dell was in Durban at the time of the murder attack on his family and rushed back that evening.   http://jv.news24.com/Beeld/Suid-Afrika/0,,3-975_2543663,00.html http://jv.news24.com/Beeld/Suid-Afrika/0,,3-975_2544185,00.html

Klerksdorp landlord Willem Van Rensburg gatvol about rental arrears:  arrested for damaging own rental houses with a front-end-loader… but denies attempted murder… 

Van Rensburg Willem long list of rental arrears took tractor to rental home of Kleinboy selogilwe

Oct 6 2010 - Klerksdorp Landlord Willem van Rensburg got so gatvol about the huge rental-arrears by his 80 tenants living on his smallholding in 40 brick homes and a steel container, that he allegedly damaged some of his own homes and pushed over the container with a front-end-loader on Saturday. The local ANC-mayor has turned it into a major political row. Van Rensburg was accused of ‘attempted murder’ and ‘deliberate damage of property’, reports Susan Cilliers from Klerksdorp magistrate’s court. http://www.beeld.com/Suid-Afrika/Nuus/Sakeman-in-hof-na-hy-huise-op-sy-hoewe-beskadig-20101005

The Afrikaans newspaper writes that ‘two-year-old Priscila Selogilwe allegedly escaped injury – she had allegedly gotten so frightened by the noise from the front-end-loader that she had run back into her family’s steel container home and her dad, tenant Kleinboy Selogilwe had to snatch away his daughter only seconds before Van Rensburg started pushing it over with his tractor”. Van Rensburg denies the murder attempt: he said he and his two co-workers had made certain that none of the rental homes had been occupied before attacking them with his front-end-loader.

By Saturday they have drunk away all their money…

“I know I have acted wrongly but I am just sick and tired of my tenants not paying their rental arrears for the past eight months and never keeping their promises to ‘pay me by Friday’. When I show up to collect the rents on Saturdays, they have already drunk away all their money”.

  • North West police Lt.col Junior Metsi said Van Rensburg was released on warning on Monday and ordered to appear on November 1 in the Klerksdorp Magistrate’s court.

Political row with ANC-mayhor Poppy Seduku

The entire business has been turned into a political row with local acting mayor Poppy Seduku calling in the police and the fire department to the smallholding ‘when hearing of the event,’ she said. “The municipality took the tenants tents, matresses and food and asked them if they wanted to move to municipal land and be given government-housing,’ she said.

Van Rensburg said he and his co-workers were certain that there was no-one inside any of the rental houses -- and he had wanted to merely move aside the steel container ‘because it was in the way”. It fell over accidentially, he said – and there most certainly was no-one inside the fourty brick-houses he rents out to some 80 residents.

His co-workers, including Mr Japie Porter, confirmed that they had made certain that there was no-one inside the houses before Van Rensburg took his front-end loader to them.

Van Rensburg said he’d already warned the non-paying tenants a month earlier that they “would be removed” if they did not pay their rental arreas. Of the tenants who spoke to Beeld admitted only to being  ‘three months behind’. However Van Rensburg showed Beeld his receipt-book and his long list of rental-arrears which proved his claim.

Van Rensburg Willem Selogilwe steel container home pushed over with tractor... The attempted murder charge centers on the accusations by  tenant Kleinboy Selogilwe, wife Irene and daughter Priscilla, 2: the Selogilwe family claims that their little girl was nearly killed when Van Rensburg had pushed over their steel container-home. Van Rensburg said there was no-one inside. http://www.beeld.com/Suid-Afrika/Nuus/Sakeman-in-hof-na-hy-huise-op-sy-hoewe-beskadig-20101005

Clive Derby-Lewis’ prison-abuse continued at hospital

Conservative SA politician Clive Derby-Lewis, 74, was sentenced to death for his involvement in the politically-motivated assassination of SA Communist Party leader Chris Hani. His sentence was commuted to life-imprisonment in 1993. He now is chained to a hospital bed, fighting for his life against cancer and gangrene caused by neglect in the  Pretoria Central Prison. A small group of courageous Boers gathered on Monday-night at the prison, demanding the political prisoner’s release on humanitarian grounds. He has been in prison for 17 years.

Clive Derby Lewis Boer Protestors demand his release on humanitarian grounds Oct22010

----------------

Report by his wife Gaye Derby-Lewis:

Clive Derby Lewis chained to hospital bed fighting gangrene and cancer ... The law of South Africa says that a life prisoner over the age of 65 may apply for parole, and this he did.  In July 2008, the Department of Correctional Services (DCS) Parole Board recommended he be given parole -  to be released on 15 October 2008. DCS did nothing about this and the family was forced to take DCS to court, where the case was lost after a full bench (the first time in history) ruled that his application was faulty.

Chained to hospital bed, fighting gangrene and cancer:

Derby-Lewis now is chained to a hospital bed, fighting for his life with cancer and gangrene incurred in Pretoria Central prison: a cutting-injury to a leg was not timeously addressed by the prison authorities.

“The shocking neglect of this 74 year old man by the prison services continues even at the hospital where he is currently being treated. During the surgical operation on his right leg two DCS prison wardens who were guarding Clive insisted on being present within the operating theater  whilst the operation was carried out.This obstructed the work of the doctors and it was only after Mr. Marius Coertze, Clive’s attorney, threatend to have these prison wardens prosecuted for contempt of court that they actually agreed to wait outside the operating theater. They then watched the operation through a window. The doctors objected strongly to the incident in the operating theater.  It hampered the work of the surgeon and doctors involved in the operation and it also caused a further risk of infection and the spread of germs within the operating theater. Theater.  As a rule no person other than the medical theater personnel is allowed within an operating theater during surgery.

Chained to his hospital bed:

The prison wardens have now chained the ailing Clive Derby-Lewis to his bed. He cannot get up at will and do regular walks and exercise which is important  for a patient’s post operative situation as regular movement assists in combating bloodclots.
Bloodclots can now form and create thrombosis in the leg and/or heart and/or an embolism in the lungs. To combat this trauma and even death, Clive is now being treated with blood thinning medication.

  • Clive can only walk about in his small room – he is not allowed into the hall outside his room.

Doctors have been forced to take this corrective action as a result of the fact that a 74 year old man with a bad leg has been chained to his bed.

The case ended up in court where we lost against Advocate George Bizos, twelve senior advocates and various attorneys, representing DCS and the widow Mrs. Hani - whose input was suddenly necessary to the processing of the parole.

Attorneys Marius Coertze and his wife Elsabe Juin acted on our behalf, and retained advocates to present our case. The advocates were told that the Derby-Lewis family had no money for their fees but that funds would be raised from sympathetic members of the public and friends  to try and cover the legal expenses.

  • Marius Coertze and Elsabe Juin have acted for Clive Derby-Lewis without ever sending us an account. We have paid them nothing, even though we want to. Our funds have been exhausted over the years due to legal expenses incurred during the trial in 1993, various appeals and the TRC’s amnesty proceedings in 1997/1998. During this time we have received financial support from the public and friends for which we will be forever grateful.

Gangrene set in after injury at Pretoria central prison: Xrays, treatment, Xrays refused:

On 3 September 2010 Clive damaged his leg on a bed frame lying around in one of the passages in the Pretoria Central Prison.  He asked to see a doctor but was only able to see the doctor – a Dr. Sebotsane – ten days later, and because of this delay, infection and eventually gangrene had set in to his leg. The doctor didn’t appear to see this danger, and simply prescribed cream for the leg. However, at Clive’s request, the doctor instructed that an X-Ray be taken of the leg, which instruction was ignored.

On  Sunday 19 September during a visit, I saw his leg was swollen and black, and was oozing a horrible discharge, and knew that something urgent would have to be done. Marius Coertze obtained an urgent court order on Monday 20 September to admit Clive to hospital with immediate effect, and Monday afternoon,  Dr. M.C. Durand examined Clive and declared his leg to be gangrenous. Dr. Durand immediately scheduled an operation for the following day. As well, Dr. Durand saw that a sore on Clive’s temple was cancerous. Clive had had this sore for some years and had asked Dr. Sebotsane about it, only to be given cream to apply to the sore.

Elsabe Juin’s report on what has happened as a result of the urgent court order is now sent to you as well.  Without Marius Coertze and Elsabe Juin, Clive would probably have died in prison, as we cannot afford legal fees, having been wiped out over the years fighting in the courts foe justice for Clive.

Marius and Elsabe are now in danger of losing their practice because two of the advocates we retained in 2008 , Mr. Herman Barnardt and Mr. Danie van Loggerenberg, have now issued summary judgement against Marius and Elsabe and if R160,000 cannot be paid before the end of October, these two good people will lose their practice and thus their livelihood.

It cannot be that these two good people who have given legal service to Clive over the years and haven’t asked for one penny from him, must now be the victims of two advocates who knew we would have to raise money from the public, but who will now not wait and who will see Marius and Elsabe ruined for the sum of R160,000. I am thus asking for your help in trying to raise this money to pay these advocates so that they will not put the Marius Coertze practice at risk.

Please help as these people have saved Clive’s life. Without the urgent court order against DCS, Clive’s leg would have worsened and he would probably have lost it, and the cancer would have become worse. Clive’s blood tests also show the appearance of prostate cancer and a urologist must be brought in to examine Clive. Clive will have to undergo further operations this coming Tuesday on his face and his leg, and there is talk that skin grafts may be necessary. In addition, the doctors have put him on stronger anti-biotic treatment as the poison in his leg was moving  up above his knee towards the groin. Please help. Marius Coertze’s bank details are:

Please send me details of your deposit so that we can reconcile the deposits and so I can tell Clive who has helped. We can only say thank you in anticipation, and thanks to Marius and Elsabe who have literally saved Clive’s life.

REPORT ON THE MEDICAL CONDITION OF CLIVE DERBY LEWIS

Clive Derby-Lewis still cannot be released from a Pretoria Hospital despite the intense struggles of six doctors’ attempts to improve his deteriorating medical condition.

GANGRENE
Clive was admitted to a private hospital in Pretoria on the 20th September as a result of a distressingly acute condition of gangrene in his right lower leg. He was operated on during Tuesday 21st September for this condition and dead tissue measuring 8 cm x 6 cm (almost as big as a man’s fist) was removed from his right leg. Thereafter he was given an intravenous antibiotic to try and stop the spread of the gangrene.The wound has been left open to drain and the wound covers are replaced regularly to keep the wound sterile.
The right leg is still swollen and his first antibiotic course has now finished. This is an indication that the fight against the gangrene has not been won. Mr Derby–Lewis is now on a second and much stronger course of antibiotics to try and stop the gangrene infection.It should be noted that he was eventually admitted to hospital in a seriously neglected and abused condition from the South African Department of Correctional Services (DCS) Pretoria Central Prison. Doctors are still not sure that his right leg can be saved. Should the gangrene not heal then this leg will have to be amputated to combat the current rapidly spreading gangrene to the rest of his body.

HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE
During the initial clinical examination of Mr Derby-Lewis after his first admittance to hospital, doctors discovered that that his blood presure was a life-threathening  172/140. The doctors have given him medication to bring his blood pressure level under control. We have been advised by the doctors that Clive’s blood pressure level is currently under control. However, these same doctors have also advised that the blood pressure will most probably become unstable once Clive returns to the prison where the proper medical treatment he is currently receiving in hospital is not available.

CANCER
On admittance to hospital the doctor discovered skin cancer on Clive’s right forehead. The cancer has spread from his hair line on his right temple to his eyebrow and covers an area of approximately 5 cm x 5 cm.  Surgeon Dr. M.C. Du Rand, informed Clive that skin cancer takes a long time to become this large and that it has presented been obvious) over a period of  two years or longer. The cancer is now so deep that it bleeds spontaneously. Biopsies so far have indicated that this cancer is an aggressive skin cancer which should be treated immediately.
Further blood tests conducted by the hospital indicate that Clive may also have prostate cancer.  A urologist will be consulted to confirm this diagnosis.

TREATMENT
Dr. Du Rand informed Clive that his medical condition and state of health is as a result of gross negligence and mishandling on the part of DCS.  Dr. du Rand is of the opinion that any medical practitioner could have diagnosed the various illnessess that Clive now has without any effort.
Mr. Marius Coertze, Clive’s Attorney, mentioned that the DCS hierarchy were obviously aware of his chronic and acute medical condition but have probably kept silent on this matter and have neglected it in the hope that Clive will die a so called natural death within the prison. within the next 12 months.  The neglect of Clive by DCS could then easily be swept under the carpet.

ABUSE
According to Mr. Marius Coertze, the shocking neglect of Clive Derby-Lewis a 74 year old man by DCS continues even at the hospital where he is currently being treated! During the surgical operation on his right leg two DCS prison wardens who were guarding Clive insisted on being present within the operating theater  whilst the operation was carried out.
This obstructed the work of the doctors and it was only after Mr. Marius Coertze, Clive’s attorney, threatend to have these prison wardens prosecuted for contempt of court that they actually agreed to wait outside the operating theater. They then watched the operation through a window.
The doctors objected strongly to the incident in the operating theater.  It hampered the work of the surgeon and doctors involved in the operation and it also caused a further risk of infection and the spread of germs within the operating theater. Theater.  As a rule no person other than the medical theater personnel is allowed within an operating theater during surgery.
The prison wardens have chained Clive Derby-Lewis to his bed. He cannot get up at will and do regular walks and exercise which is important  for a patient’s post operative situation as regular movement assists in combating bloodclots.
Bloodclots can now form and create thrombosis in the leg and/or heart and/or an embolism in the lungs. To combat this trauma and even death, Clive is now being treated with blood thinning medication.  (Clive can only walk about in his small room – he is not allowed into the hall outside his room).
Doctors have been forced to take this corrective action as a result of the fact that a 74 year old man with a bad leg has been chained to his bed.
Docters were shocked that DCS personnel unashamedly and openly have tried and continue to try to hamper his health by preventing doctors from treating Mr. Derby-Lewis, acting contrary to the court order allowing the medical profession to carry out its work. One of the prison wardens even prevented Dr. Du Rand examining Clive on the 24th September as he did not recognise the doctor and did not know if he was allowed to enter the room.
According to Mr. Marius Coertze the latest incident is DCS’s attitude towards visits by Clive’s wife Gaye.  She has been allowed to visit him once.  Each time she wants to visit she has to go to the Pretoria Central Prison and wait some time to get a permit which allows her one visit only, for 45 minutes. 
The next day she must go back to the Pretoria Prison, aa long way from the hospital, to obtain a new written permission to visit Clive. The Pretoria Prison administration   closed for the public holiday Friday 24 September resulting in a long weekend so nobody could visit Clive.DCS also gave Clive forms to be completed.  According to Clive these forms are for him to be totally responsible for all the costs of compensating the wardens guarding him. Mr. Coertze his attorney could not advise him on the legal implications of this form as he was refused a visit to Clive.

CLIVE DERBY-LEWIS CURRICULUM VITAE

CLIVE DERBY-LEWIS is a fifth generation South African who was born in Cape Town in 1936. He spent nineteen years in voluntary service in the South African Army’s Citizen Force, attaining the rank of Commandant. At the age of 32, he became commanding officer of the Witwatersrand Rifles Regiment, the youngest CO in the regiment’s history. He still retains that record. He took the regiment to the SWA border during the war there where the regiment served with distinction.

After his military career, he entered politics and is one of the few politicians in South Africa to have served in the four arms of the previous government: local government, the Provincial Council, Parliament and the President’s Council.

He was a founder member of the South African Conservative Party in 1982 and served as that party’s official opposition spokesman on Economic Affairs. He established a parliamentary record by putting more than 800 questions to the ruling National Party during his term as a member of Parliament from 1987 to 1989.

He has been active in numerous organizations – many started by himself – to inform the South African public in general about South Africa’s political direction. (His predictions of course became a reality). He served on the boards of two hospitals, a school for children with learning disabilities, and a high school. He was a Zone Commander in SA’s Civil Defence Corps and was involved in many ex-servicemen’s organizations. He was elected Vice President of the London-based Western Goals, an organization devoted to the preservation of Western civilization, and was a member of various anti-communist groups. He attended the World Anti-Communist League Congress in Brussels in 1990.

Opposed to politicization of South Africa’s churches:

A committed Christian, Derby-Lewis was involved in many groups opposed to the politicization of South Africa’s churches, their support for liberation theology and their active assistance to revolutionary forces in South Africa. He was born a Catholic and fought against the Catholic Church’s support for these revolutionary forces. He left the Catholic Church some years ago and is a member of Afrikaanse Protestante Kerk. (APK).

In 1993 Clive was given the death sentence for his involvement (his gun was used) in the assassination by Janus Walus of Chris Hani, a communist revolutionary who wanted to see South Africa as a “wasteland”. In 1990, Clive’s sentence was commuted to life imprisonment. In 1993, his appeal for amnesty was denied.

The law of South Africa says that a life prisoner over the age of 65 may apply for parole, and this he did.  In July 2008, the Department of Correctional Services (DCS) Parole Board recommended he be given parole, to be released on 15 October 2008. DCS did nothing about this and the family was forced to take DCS to court, where the case was lost after a full bench (the first time in history) ruled that his application was faulty.

Again in 2010, the Parole Board recommended Clive’s release on parole, and he is waiting to see what transpires this time. Clive has been in prison for more than seventeen years.
