ANC and EFF supporters turned their protests into political rallies outside Lenyenye Magistrate Court, Tzaneen, Limpopo, where Mark Scott-Crossley was appearing on an attempted murder charge on Friday, March 24.

The street along the court was a hive of activity as the supporters of both parties chanted.

Limpopo police spokesman, Lt-Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe, said police officers and the Maake Crime Prevention Forum members will be deployed to deal with the situation each time Scott-Crossley appears in court. No incidents were reported in and around the court.

Scott-Crossley made his first appearance in the Hoedspruit Magistrate Court early in January this year. This was after a case of attempted murder was opened against him by Silence Mabunda after an apparent racist attack.

Scott-Crossley handed himself over to police in Pretoria after a month on the run.

Mabunda (37), a general worker at the Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre, alleged that Scott-Crossley had grabbed and smashed his cell phone before driving over him in Hoedspruit in December last year.

The case has been postponed to April 12.
