A man residing at the Monrick smallholdings near Eldoraigne in Centurion had to undergo an operation to amputate his left foot after he was shot in the foot by a farm attacker. Stephen Ferreira (47) was discharged from hospital on Wednesday 19 June 2019, after the incident on 9 June when he was assisting in searching for the attackers. On that day at around 20:00, three black attackers assaulted a deaf man who also stays on one of the smallholdings with a blunt object. He sustained head injuries in the incident.
Ferreira and others who all stay on plots in the vicinity searched for three attackers. When Ferreira approached the stables on his own plot, two shots were fired at him. The one shot missed him but the other shot hit him in his foot.
Ferreira said the bullet devastated his foot and doctors recommended that it be amputated. Ferreira works as an IT manager.
