ET funeral in photos: part 1, Ventersdorp

Ventersdorp on the day of the Eugene Terre'Blanche funeral, through the lenses of our reporters on the spot.

 At the church, on the outskirts of town.

And then the rain came down.

While the miles-long convoy wound its way past the township on its way to the farm, for the burial.
