A farm attack took place on 5 July 2019, at about 22:00, in Kameeldrift East, Roodeplaat, Gauteng province. Four attackers overpowered a group of people having a braai. An elderly man, Jurie, a retired farmer, was also attacked when he exited the bathroom. The attackers assaulted and tortured the man with boiling water and demanded the safe keys from him. They then tied him up. They removed a 303 rifle from the safe and placed it near him. When the attackers were ransacking the kitchen the man managed to get loose.
The man used the 303 and opened fire on the attackers, killing one and wounding another who managed to flee in his injured state. Police were on the scene and are investigating. There is no other information available at this stage.
