Father, son jailed after North West goat farmer killed in front of his children.

“It was revealed during court proceedings that about 8pm on the said day, Mavula, accompanied by his three children, drove his vehicle to look for one of his goats, which was trapped in the dam alongside Havana Road in Sandrift, Brits.

"The Mavulas were busy rescuing their goat when two males approached them and blocked the way by parking their vehicle in front of the family's car.” “It was during the assault that Mavula fell down on the ground. One of the accused, Schalk Myburgh Jnr, got in the vehicle and drove over Mavula. The accused left Mavula motionless and went to the nearby farm, where they related the story to the owner.

The next day, the two went to the Brits police station, where they alleged they had been attacked by a group of around 10 people. “A preliminary investigation was conducted and revealed that the allegations were false. Consequently the two were arrested on Sunday January 10 2016 through the evidence provided by Mavula's 15-year-old son, who also witnessed the gruesome ordeal.”
