gavel thumb100 News24 reports that a security guard was due to appear in the Krugersdorp Magistrate's Court on Monday in connection with the fatal shooting of Tarlton tractor driver Aron Mutavhatsindi.  

He was shot and killed in an open field near the informal settlement Matshelapad, outside Krugersdorp, west of Johannesburg, on 6 January.  Forty-two-year-old Mutavhatsindi worked at the Bartlet Poultry Farm.  It was reported last week that Mutavhatsindi's nephew, Ramashia Ebraimy, who witnessed his uncle's killing, saw two vans following his uncle on the tractor.  A man got out of one of the vans and allegedly shot his uncle, who died.  Police initially said he had been shot by a farm owner, but it later emerged that the suspect was a security guard.
