‘Racism’ claims at Skielik court hearing

The Times : "Families of the victims of this week’s shootings at the Skielik informal settlement in the North West said they felt racism had been upheld at the Swartruggens Magistrate’s Court today.
Relatives, residents and ANC parliamentary members spoke to media outside the court after Johan Nel appeared briefly for the murder of three people in the settlement.
Nel allegedly entered the Skielik (Afrikaans for 'Suddenly') settlement on Monday and allegedly shot dead a 30-year-old man, a 10-year-old boy and a three-month-old baby. A fourth victim died in hospital."
