The bail application by two men accused of killing a Free State farm manager, has been postponed to Tuesday. Police Minister, Bheki Cele, says his department will always fight for justice, no matter the victim.
On Friday, police had their hands full in Senekal before the court appearance, with a standoff between various interest groups.
Cele accompanied a strong police presence in the town to ensure violent unrest does not take place. Police reportedly searched vehicles entering the town and confiscated some firearms from people participating in the protest.
