South African farmer killed and set alight

In the first two weeks of February, there were eleven farm murders, generating by far as one of the bloodiest months for the country’s farms.

The farm attacks, wherein no one died was also reported on, and while it appears that they do not report all the attacks because farmers no longer have confidence in the justice system.

At a Community Policing forum in Warmbaths, it was disclosed by farmers that the police did not even bother to gather evidence at the scene of an attack.

On the same day, that the CPF meeting took place, 36-year-old Mr. Ryno van Rensburg was killed on a smallholding in the Roodekuil area and nothing was stolen.

In Tzaneen, a woman suffered the gruesome ordeal of being raped three times and survived the attack.

The most gruesome case that shocked the community of Balfour is the murder of four family members on the Modderbult farm. Louis Smuts (48) and his wife Belinda (42), and Louis’s parents, Gert (78) and Paulina (77), was killed. All four had been shot in the head.
