The Coligny Interdenomination Minsters Association demands the harshest sentence possible for two men convicted of killing Coligny teenager Matlhomola Mosweu.

According to its chairperson Tshose Celo, life imprisonment might be a proper sentence, which should send the message to all criminals willing to commit those kind of crimes.

During a court process held in 2017 Pieter Doorewaard, 27, and Phillip Schutte, 34, were found guilty of kidnapping, intimidation, theft and pointing of a firearm.

According to the investigation, they threw 16-year-old Mosweu out from a moving van at a farm near the city as the boy stole sunflowers from Doorewaard’s and Schutte’s employer.

The incident was later followed by a serious conflict between black and white communities in Coligny that has been continuing to these days.
