MAHIKENG - Phillip Schutte, accused of killing Matlhomola Mosweu in Coligny, denied that he threw the 16-year-old out of a moving van while testifying in the North West High Court, sitting in Mahikeng, on Wednesday.
"I cannot comment. It did not happened," Schutte told the court, while responding to Prosecutor Moeketsi Moeketsi's question that a State witness testified that he saw him throwing Mosweu out of a moving van.
Schutte told the court that the teenager jumped out of the van, admitting that he did not see him jumping.
He explained that he saw movement on the left mirror of the vehicle and when he realised that Mosweu was no longer on the loading base of the van, he concluded that he had jumped.
He explained that the incident happened in a split second and that the only logical conclusion he could draw was that the teenager jumped.
