Willem Oosthuizen and Theo Martins Jackson, both 28, were remanded in custody after their lawyer decided not to apply for bail.

Magistrate Jongilizwe Dumehleli said the pair should return for another court hearing on January 25.

The men face charges of kidnapping and assaulting 27-year-old Victor Mlotshwa over an incident that occurred in August at a farm near the town of Middelburg in the eastern province of Mpumalanga.

They were arrested on Monday after the video, apparently shot on a mobile phone by one of the two white men involved, went viral last week.

The 20-second clip shows one of the assailants shoving a black man, clearly in distress, into the wooden coffin and trying to force down the lid.

  1. Cocosek, when you have nothing important to say you should not make any comments. Tell me, what exactly do you know about South African apart from what the white establishment pumped in your head.

  2. This sh**t will never stop in Sth. Africa because the natives are just too stupid, with their
    Tribal differences. The European population know that and they take advantage of the
    situation. Africans on the whole don't get along with each other, mainly because of Tribal
    and class system, due to levels of Education. Will they overcome one day?
