A few weeks ago, a disturbing video circulated on social media of a young black man being forced into a coffin by two white men threatening to pour petrol and light him in Middelburg, Mpumalanga. Two white men who forced a black man into a coffin appear in court.

His name is Victor Mlotshwa and he came face to face with the two racists who almost ended his life in court Wednesday morning at the Middelburg Magistrates Court.

The two appeared in the Middleburg Magistrates Court on charges of kidnapping and assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm. The two have however reportedly opted to not get bail because they fear for their lives outside.
