Two farmers accused of killing a 12-year old boy in Coligny are expected to appear in the Coligny Magistrate's Court on Friday.
Crowds have gathered outside the court, with a visible police presence watching over the crowds. The public is not allowed inside the court.
Black residents from the area, speaking to EWN outside the court, say that they want the state to oppose bail for the two farmers accused of killing the boy. The racial nature of the crime has infuriated residents.
The presiding magistrate has allowed photographs of the two accused to be taken, with the proviso that they not show the suspects' faces as it could influence the investigation.
