André Pienaar, a farmer from Senekal, is currently facing seven charges against him and five years in prison, after he was arrested on October 6, 2020, during the march against farm murders.

Genevieve de Jager, a friend of the murdered Brendin Horner and André Pienaar, says thousands of people gathered on that day, but currently Pienaar stands alone.

Brendin Horner, a young farm foreman of Paul Roux, was brutally murdered on the evening of 1 October 2020. Horner’s father found his body the next morning.

“The march was against farm murders, after two suspects, who are accused of the murder of Horner, were arrested. The two suspects made their first appearance in court on October 6, 2021.”

Pienaar is charged with arson, public violence, attempted murder, damage to property and assault with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.

“He is expected to plead guilty to the charges against him. He is a husband, father of two young daughters and the breadwinner of his family “, says De Jager.

“Louis Pienaar, a lawyer from Bloemfontein, will help us fight the charges against Pienaar, but we still need a lot of funds for that.”

She says that the case against Pienaar is being delayed and is postponed from time to time.

The case was adjourned until December 10, 2021. De Jager asks that if anyone wants to help or make a contribution, you will contact her on 073 361 1387.
