JOHANNESBURG - A South African court sentenced a black farmhand to life in prison on Wednesday for the axe murder of Eugene Terre'blanche, a white supremacist prominent during the dying years of apartheid.

Chris Mahlangu killed Terre'blanche over a pay dispute in April 2011 at the white farmer's home in Ventersdorp, about 125 km (80 miles) west of Johannesburg.

Judge John Horn said the attack was not racially motivated.

Many South Africans see Terre'blanche as a relic from a bygone era and his murder did little to stir racial tension.
