Eugene Terreblanche 'killed after sex attack on one of his workers'
Right-wing AWB leader Eugene Terreblanche was a fervent opposer of black rule

Right-wing leader Eugene Terreblanche may have been murdered after sexually assaulting one of his workers, South African police said yesterday.

One of the two men accused of beating the 69-year-old Afrikaner to death told his lawyer the attack was in response to homosexual advances by his employer, who was buried last Friday.

Clothes belonging to 28-year-old Chris Mahlangu and a 15-year-old co-accused, who cannot be named, will now be re-examined.

Mr Terreblanche's trousers were around his knees when his body was found at a cottage on his farm near Ventersdorp, 60 miles from Johannesburg, on April 3.

Mahlangu's lawyer Puna Moroko told a local newspaper Mr Terreblanche had plied the suspects with alcohol before trying to have sex 'with one or both of them'.

Police said the allegations were among possible motives for the murder, along with a row over unpaid wages. The killing has left South Africa facing its worst race crisis since the end of apartheid 16 years ago as it prepares to host the World Cup in June.

Mr Terreblanche, who was married with an adopted daughter, has also been accused of homosexual assault by a teenage member of his AWB movement, according to the Afrikaans newspaper Rapport.

New AWB leader Steyn van Ronge confirmed that the teenager spent nights alone 'in Terreblanche's arms' at the remote farm house, but said the leader 'felt sorry for him because his parents were divorced'.

White residents of Ventersdorp reacted in shock and anger to the latest allegations.

Margrieta Dreyer said: 'I don't believe all these filthy stories. They are trying to ruin his name. To us he was loved and a hero.'

The two suspects are due in court again on Wednesday, with the police and army planning a massive security operation.
