6:27 am
last year found guilty of killing a fifteen year old black boy whom they'd caught stealing sunflowers on a farm where they worked they've now been sentenced to have are to eighteen years and souter to twenty three years in prison. the sentence comes two years after markham almost who was killed on the outskirts of the small town of collini markham or less parents suck in agnes say their son's death was senseless and racially motivated. if my son was a weight they would have killed him for being on the farm and taken floors they would have disciplined him but they killed my son because he's like following my kamala's death people here rioted some looted shops and burned down houses including property owned by the farmers the community was torn apart along racial lines. this is where michael moore lho was found after he was caught on the farm he had suffered a broken neck but there are two versions to the story one is that michael miller
6:28 am
was killed by the two white men who would courting stealing sunflowers but they claim the boy died when he jumped off the back of a van as they drove into the police station the families of these men say the trial wasn't fair and important evidence was ignored. they saved my kamala's death was an accident and from from outside we we are sort of at something like this happen but it's either you were disarmed discipline on the on that side of the children. but the people in the township must teach the children do not take something that does not belong to you thought of art and screw to plan to appeal the conviction and sentence in recent weeks the only witness said he lied to the court when he testified that he saw the two men throw the boy from the back of the van but he later said he'd been intimidated bribed and made to read a statement to clear the farmers in twenty seventeen two white men in power malanga
