Coligny Trial - Emotions Run High in South African Court

The mother of slain Coligny teen Matlhomola Moshoeu has told the North West High Court that she is not prepared to forgive her son's killers, Pieter Doorewaard and Phillip Schutte. The pair were found guilty of murder after 16-year-old Moshoeu, who they allege stole sunflowers from a farm, died when he was pushed from a moving pickup truck.
