JOHANNESBURG - Two suspects accused of murdering 21-year old farm manager Brendin Horner will return to court in Senekal.

Both the accused, Sekola Matlaletsa and Sekwetje Mahlamba, have denied killing the farm manager.

Two weeks ago a group of people demanded authorities hand over the two suspects.

They damaged state property and set a police van alight while protesting.

On Friday, when the two suspects appeared in court, there was a standoff between the EFF and the farming community.

EFF members claim they were there to protect state property.
