A white man is coming to kill us - mother

It was a mother's intuition that drove a woman to tell her husband that a white man was coming to kill them.

A few minutes later the woman's three-year-old son Onkarabile ran into the house with blood-soaked clothes and a bullet wound in his left shoulder, which was held together only by pieces of flesh.

Christina Lottering testified in the Mmabatho high court yesterday that she fainted outside her shack when she saw that her son Onkarabile (God has answered), was the first victim of Johan Nell's bullets at Skierlik informal settlement near Swartruggens in the North West on January, 14.

Little Onkarabile was taken to the Rustenburg Hospital and later transferred to George Mukhari Hospital in Garankuwa, where he spent three months receiving specialised treatment.

At Nell's earlier and final appearance in the Swartruggens magistrate's court Onkarabile's name was never mentioned.

It was only included in the roll after the case was transferred to the Mmabatho high court for trial.

Timothy Mokgathi testified that a white man arrived minutes after Nell had shot his 15 victims, four of whom were killed.

"He just came and asked where the shooter was and then left," Mokgathi said. "He did not bother to help the youngest victim, three-month-old Elizabeth Moiphitli, and her mother Anna Moiphitli, who both later died."

The bullets had ripped open the woman's stomach and her intestines were on the ground while the baby had a big hole in her spinal cord, Mokgathi said.

The trial continues.

Sometimes you ask yourself so many questions and still no answer, i asked myself why do we have to be treated like we are nothing? if you take a look the guy Nell was sentenced to 169yrs in prison of which that was not fare, b/coz he is white that is y he's got to go in and out, with my black brother they woul'd have made sure that 10 lives were good for him.

I always advice people that, if you car was just about to capsize, and there's a group of white people on the left and a group of black people on the right, make sure your car collide with black people, for a simple reason, if you are black, your life will never be respected as compared to our white counterparts, look at Jub-Jub's case, it has been draggin for a while, if the kids were white just like the taxi driver who killed a white girl in centurion, the case has been concluded.
