Farm murder statistics have again added another case after an earlier farm attack become a farm murder.

Last week, 58-year-old Mr. Dries (Bloubul) Botha was shot at his farm near Brits and died almost a week later in a Johannesburg hospital from injuries sustained during the attack.

During the incident, Mr. Botha’s wife managed to lock herself in the bathroom and call for help. She could hear her husband shouting that he had been shot. He was injured in the shoulder, right arm, and upper body, and his intestines, especially his pancreas, were severely damaged.

The suspects shot him without stealing anything, and seven suspects have been arrested.
