The two men convicted of killing a teenager in Coligny in North West have been denied leave to appeal their sentences in the North West High Court in Mmabatho.
As the country commemorates Freedom Day some sections of the society are still trapped by the demons of the past.
The family of Matlhomola Mosoeu is disappointed in the sentences handed to two men convicted of murdering their 15 year old son in 2017 in Coligny in the North West.
Both the state and the defence teams in the case of the two Coligny farmworkers convicted of the murder of 15-year-old Matlomola Mosweu are expected to present their closing arguments.
The family of the deceased 15-year-old Matlhomola Mosweu have told the North West High Court in Mahikeng, that they will not accept an apology from the families of Pieter Doorewaard and Phillip Schutte.
