Bothaville - Six people arrested in connection with a farm attack and robbery have appeared in the Bothaville Magistrate's Court, Free State police said on Wednesday.
The matter was postponed to January 8, when they were expected to bring a formal bail application, said Captain Stephen Thakeng.
They were arrested on December 10 and would remain custody.
Henry Ofoha, 39, Paulus Radebe, 38, Johannes Koalepe, 42, Stoffel Maloisane, 31, Lebelo Mochoa, 43, and Prince Sunny Asagwara, 34, are charged with conspiracy to commit a crime and robbery.

The sixth man was a farm worker who was thought to have been involved, said Thakeng.
